1:30pm (6 Places)
2 hours - Group Lesson & Practice
UPDATE: The morning session is filling up with more advanced riders. If you are completely new to drops, we suggest signing up for an afternoon slot.
Learn to take drops with confidence on our custom built progressive drop in a safe controlled environment. As one of the two maneuvers on a mountain bike that get your wheels off the ground, drops require a solid understanding of specific techniques and a progressive approach for safety and consolidation of skills.
This session is for riders who have previously taken lessons with Ride Ottawa and have good neutral and ready position, have basic pressure control skills, and can confidently do front wheel lifts.
The session will begin with a refresh of pressure control, followed by a preliminary skills test and then on to our basic drop. As the clinic progresses we will try bigger drops and learn to hone our basic drop skills.
This is a GROUP lesson (maximum 6 people) and will be run on a closed course area at Camp Fortune. (not on the trails). Social distancing will be in effect and all riders must provide proof of vaccination to attend.
