Mountain Bike Clinic: Fundraiser for the Chapel of the Holy Family
Improve your mountain bike skills, and help the Chapel
October 15-17, 2021
With PMBI certified instructor, Patrick Howell
We are excited, and thankful, to be working with Patrick Howell on this Bike Clinic/Fundraising weekend! Patrick has put together a great clinic for the October 15-17th weekend and is graciously donating his time and fees to benefit the Chapel of the Holy Family's New Boiler Fund. The Boiler fundraiser was started a couple of years ago but stalled due to the COVID shutdown.
Come Join us for a two day mountain bike adventure in the North East Kingdom on the world class Kingdom Trails mountain bike network. This program is designed for riders of all skill sets – from beginner to someone who has been riding for 10 plus years and never had formal instruction. The curriculum is taught progressively, breaking down each skill and maneuver into separate parts to help the rider achieve success. Day one will cover the fundamentals – from proper body position when riding trails and features, to trail braking, trail awareness, bike body separation and more. Day two will cover cornering (flat and berms), and we will spend time in the skills area learning proper techniques for pumping the bike, roll downs, drops, jumps and more. Both days will be structured with instruction in the morning, and trail riding after lunch. On Saturday after the ride we gather at "The Hub" where we will have a happy hour, trailside, with free beer tickets!
Your lead instructor for the weekend is a local East Burke resident and Kingdom Trails Ambassador Patrick Howell. One of Patrick’s favorite quotes is ‘Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike’ – John F. Kennedy.
Patrick has been enjoying that simple pleasure of riding a bike his entire life; from racing on BMX bikes in his youth, to mountain and road bike racing as an adult. As a certified professional mountain bike instructor (PMBI) and a Level 2 USA Cycling Coach Patrick now shares his passion with other cyclists of all skills and fitness levels. He says, "for me, creating and sharing a memorable riding experience is a day well spent in the saddle!" Patrick can now be found instructing and guiding all over New England//East Coast..…...and enjoying the simple pleasure of riding a bike.
