"As a road cyclist new to mountain biking, falls were undermining my confidence and sense of fun. Sophrosyne provides an environment in which you can state your issues. Coach Jon did appropriate isolated skills work with me that put a smile back on my face and gave me the confidence to push through fear with success. Jon's background as an educator gives him an easy, effective teaching style."
Designed to introduce the fundamental skills of both road and mountain biking, we will cover bike-specific fitness, road and trail etiquette, and basic bike maintenance. Explore Albuquerque’s wonderful bike paths as you develop confidence and increase your cycling knowledge.
Skills such as turning, climbing, and pace line will be covered in each session.
Learn new skills that will build confidence, balance, and strength on your mountain bike. Enjoy the thrills of cycling on dirt as you explore new routes and areas that will broaden your cycling world.
"I am so appreciative of how much my confidence on my mountain bike has increased since working with Jon. The way he breaks down each skill and cheers us on for even the slightest improvement is so empowering. There really is no such word as “can’t” in Jon’s vocabulary and that has helped me to gain the skills –and want to learn more skills- that make mountain biking even more fun."
