The Technique Development for Women Course will teach you the technical skills of mountain biking. It will help you to take steps to increase speed and control on flowy trails, as well over rough and rugged terrain. This course builds upon our Base Skills course by further developing your understanding of basic skills as well as introducing you to new techniques.

This course for women is derived from our Technique Development course and has been adapted to better support women in the sport of mountain biking.
