Course Description

Come join our expert instructors on our fun entry-level mountain biking class.

After reviewing biking gear, safety and basic techniques such as braking, shifting and downhill riding, we'll hit the trail for a new adventure. Starting on flat, double-track trails, we’ll gain confidence and abilities along the way. We'll also stop along the trail to practice skills and work on techniques needed to navigate around various obstacles.

For this course, we’ll be riding plus bikes which feature bigger tires that are better able to roll over obstacles and have enhanced traction for a much smoother ride than a traditional mountain bike.

All necessary biking equipment is included.

Our trips and tours are led by experienced guides who are passionate about the great outdoors and excited to share a new adventure with you. Please join us today.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
