Adult Learn to Jump Skills Clinics

Learning how to jump safely and successfully (and land) your mountain bike

involves a range of key components and constantly changing variables.  Join

us   as   we   take   you   through   a   series   of   progressions   that   will   help   you

understand all   the   components   that   will   help   you   become   a   successful

jumper.   We use BICP progressions like the different types of wheel lifts and

bunny   hops   and   work   our   way   up   to   weighting   and   un-weighting   over   a

jump.   From   there,   we   will   review   the   anatomy   of   a   jump,   discuss   varied

landings and practice using compression for height and distance.   Then we

will be ready to get jumping! These Skill Clinics are all done in a controlled

environment, we provide our own approved orange obstacles as training tool

to   emulate   what   you   see   in   the   trails   or   manufactured   jump   ramps.

Participants are encouraged to learn at their own pace in this un-intimidating

environment.  You will leave this clinic well on your way to jumping mastery -

with a more thorough understanding of the mechanics of jumping your bike

and a clear idea of what and how to practice getting your Wheels Up!

Edin Pehilj recommends Wheels Up: "I highly recommend Cody's clinics. I have done three different clinics with him and have learned something new in every one of them. Each exercise builds upon the previous one, so you never feel like you are in-over-your-head. At the beginning of the jump clinic the thought of launching myself off a ramp seemed intimidating, but at the end of the class I was like, let me do this just one more time. You will be a better & more confident rider after his clinics."     

 

Michael Putnam recommends Wheels Up: "Great experience - I definitely learned some new skills today. Cody is a great instructor - he helps you put all of the pieces together in order to make good choices out on the trails. Time and money well spent."     

 

Becky Bircher recommends Wheels Up: "I recently took a Learn to Jump class with Cody and LOVED it! He took the time to teach the 3 most important fundamentals, the right positions to prep for features, and he corrected my mistakes immediately. Cody is a great teacher and coach. I'm looking forward to more classes to take and I highly recommend his courses to anyone, beginner to experienced."     

 

Jay Marbarger recommends Wheels Up: "Cody’s clinics are awesome! He’s extremely down to earth and coach’s in a manner that allows riders to build confidence and progress. Everyone leaves as a better rider having learned something in all while doing so in a fun and supportive environment."     

 

Christopher Paul recommends Wheels Up: "I loved the course the coach was amazing.  He was able to teach skils very quickly by breaking things down into easily digestible portions.  The jumps were a bit intimidating but by the time we got to them we had worked enough that they were just fun."
