Women's Adventure Riding Clinic

Two days of off-road training geared toward female riders


MSF and D.A.R.T instructor, Stephanie Terrien leads a 2-day adventure rider training for female riders.  The group will focus on building confidence atop a foundation of adventure riding skills.  Riders will learn techniques necessary for successfully venturing off the beaten path. The training is held on a private course.  Beginning with bike positioning and balance exercises, then gradually progressing to on-bike maneuvers. This is a beginner/intermediate course.  Off-road riding experience is not necessary.
