Ladies Mountain Bike Clinic with Sue Haywood & Shanna Powell

Ladies Mountain Bike Clinic with Sue Haywood & Shanna Powell

"A great way to improve your riding is to take a clinic and ride with an experienced coach like myself. Taking 2-3 clinics and classes a year is the way to keep progressing in the sport of mountain biking. Whether you are a racer or not, the more you can ride in balance and efficiently makes riding more fun. I really like the set-up at Mulberry Gap for skills and drills practice and then practicing those skills on the trail. Being in the beautiful mountains of Georgia at Mulberry Gap Mountain Bike Get-A-Way, with friendly people and good food makes it really fun and easy to learn." - Sue Haywood

Be prepared for a long day on the bike - 56 miles and 9,412 feet of elevation gain.

You must be self-sufficient; carrying all the water, food, tools, and spares needed to get you back to the finish. There are many bailout points along the route so you can vary the length and difficulty of your ride. 

A few notes: 

1. We're limited to 75 participants - registration is required through the Mulberry Gap website. It's on a first come, first serve basis.

2. We will have 3 sag stops. YOU need to provide your own sag bag, food, drink, nutrition. We'll take it to the various locations for you and will verify those stops in the coming weeks. At the moment they will be (1) Top of Fort Mountain, (2) Top of Windy Gap, (3) Top of Mountaintown.

3. Mulberry Gap will serve lunch between 2:30 - 5:00pm. Then we will need to clean up and start prepping for dinner which is served at 6:00 for our overnight guests.

This is a Fundraiser for the North Georgia Mountain Bike Association (formerly known as the Ellijay Mountain Bike Association):
