Just getting started on trail riding? The Tech Mountain Biking Club is hosting an afternoon in the mountains with casual instruction, an easy ride and lunch. This is a fun, friendly, non-competitive ride, specifically for beginners and novices who want to learn basic skills from some skilled riders in Socorro. Meet at the Tech pool parking lot at 9:45 a.m., where bikers will shuttle to Water Canyon. Club members will hold a 15-20 minute skills clinic, with Q&A, followed by a ride to Jordan Canyon. This ride will be slow and easy along a forest road (no long climbs or descents). The club will provide lunch at Jordan Canyon, then ride back to Water Canyon. Riders will then drive back to Socorro. If you are interested in joining, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
