What the heck is a Skills Practice Jam?!


“repeated exercise in, or performance of an activity or skill, so as to acquire or maintain proficiency in it.”

The “Practice Jam” offers a relaxed, creative and collaborative gathering for practicing mountain bike skills among other like-minded riders. You choose what to practice, watch others with similar interests for inspiration, and give and receive tips with your fellow riders.

We’ll provide an open, grass covered field with cones, high jump bars, and platforms to play and practice on.

Ryan will connect with each participant providing specific guidance, feedback and demo’s throughout the skills practice jam.

We encourage you to be curious, explore and experiment with different techniques that you can then integrate and adapt to the trail.

Many clinics provide a firehose of tips and instruction which can be overwhelming and add to a busy mind which can adversely affect learning. We’re instead aiming to establish (or re-establish) a sustainable, self-driven practice ethic.

Skills require time and practice to develop.  Muscles need to adapt. There’s a big difference between mentally understanding a skill and physically executing it. A small dose of targeted coaching can be very meaningful and powerful.

We encourage you to practice skills in which you may not yet execute confidently, and make the most of the relaxed learning space, quality coaching and demos, and tips from your fellow riders.
