Welcome to get to know mountain biking as a sport with your own bike!
Note! If you don't have your own electric fatbike, you can choose a course "Get to know electric mountain bikes with rental e-fatbike (2,5 h)"
With an electric mountain bike, you can start your mountain biking hobby on a low threshold. Biking with an electric mountain bike continues to be a challenge: longer runs, more demanding climbs or more difficult places won’t stop you!
During this introduction evening you will get a good foundation for independent practice with your bike. In the course we will cover the most important basics of mountain biking in practice:
- how to use gears in off road
- driving techniques when driving uphill and downhill
- effective braking
- how to go over different obstacles
- driving positions and weight transfer
- choosing driving lines
- basic security
- route selections
- basic checks of the bike's condition
You can participate in your own bike or with a rental bike. Haltia offers rental bicycles to course participants with the discount code ‘EMTBTUTUKSI’. Please also bring your own cycling helmet. (For rental bikes, a helmet is included in the price).
The course is intended for beginners who are interested in mountain biking and / or are considering purchasing their own mountain bike (regular or electric). The same riding techniques are also suitable for using an ordinary mountain bike.
The instructor of the course is Marjo Pääkkö, a basic instructor of mountain biking.
Course participation fee 45 € / person.
