Mountain Bike skills camp set for women

Nevada County’s mountain bike, primarily composed of Nevada Union High School students, is hosting a mountain bike clinic for beginning to intermediate-level women this Saturday, July 3rd.

Instructed by the team’s coach, Debra Eckmann-Little, all of the basics of mountain-biking will be covered. The clinic will be followed by weekly rides throughout the summer – chances to practice gained techniques.

Directly after the clinic, which runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., riders will be treated to a gourmet lunch, champagne, and foot massages.

The suggested donation is $125, and riders are expected to provide a bike in working condition, a helmet and water.

To register, contact Shari at 477-8006 or stop my Mountain Recreation on East Main Street in Grass Valley.
