Mt. Bachelor's Gravity School switches gears in the summer to offer lessons and clinics for downhill bikers.

This clinic focuses on the development of basic skills including body position, braking, and cornering. Also learning to ride multiple surfaces including dirt, rock, pavers, wood boardwalks, etc. all at the same price as a Sunshine Accelerator bike ticket! Instruction terrain includes the skills park and the FTL run accessed off Sunshine Accelerator. Ages 8+ are welcome, however, this clinic is targeted towards bikers looking to become more comfortable in a downhill environment.

The clinic is offered for two hours; Saturdays and Sundays at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Our Intro to Ride Clinic full package comes with a Sport rental bike, full face helmet, elbow and knee pads, plus a ticket to the Sunshine Lift. Don't need the full package? Simply sign up for the clinic only option which includes a Sunshine Lift ticket + two-hour clinic.
