Intermediate Skills Requirement

Must have a mountain bike with shifting gears, knobby tires, and reachable hand brakes. Instructors will not allow riders to use unsafe equipment.

Important Information

We build on the skills the students learn throughout the week.  It is very important that your child attend the first and second day since we work on essential skills that will keep them safe on their bikes. 

We will be leaving the parking lot 5 minutes after start time every day.  Your rider should show up early and be ready to ride on time.  We use the additional 5 minutes for bike safety checks.

If your student took the beginner clinic last year, the intermediate level would be a great follow-up clinic. For information on which class would be best for your child, please contact Mountain Bike instructor Jamie Bangerter at (801) 661-8338.

Online registration is available. Link is on the top right of this page. Registration may also be done in person at the Parks & Recreation Department (12354 S. 800 E.).
