Stöke School is in session!

Our clinics give you an immersive learning experience and the chance to share the stoke with other riders.

Stöke School gives you the chance to learn multiple skills in one weekend alongside other riders. You’ll learn and practice skills within a safe, controlled environment and then take them to the trail (weather-permitting) on group ride led by your coaches.

Currently, we offer Stöke School at the fundamental (MTB Skills 101) and intermediate (MTB Skills 201) skill levels. To register for MTB Skills 201, you must have completed our MTB Skills 101 or an equivalent skills clinic/course.

Each Stöke School is limited to 12 riders to maintain a 6:1 rider-to-coach ratio, so register asap to reserve your spot!
