WEEKLY MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDE FOR BEGINNERS!
John Dang and Matthias Jezek from ROKFORM / Team Velosport organize weekly MTB rides for Beginner to Intermediate Level. These rides are designed to help improve your skills, learn more about the sport, enjoy the local trails, and most important share the fun with other participants! Each week they choose a different location, which helps with diversity and to introduce new trails to people who may just be getting into the sport or are not familiar with all the parks in the Orange County area. Expected ride time is approximately 60-90 Minutes, but this also depends, if riders request short clinics about particular trail sections or riding techniques.
Everyone rides at their own comfortable pace and we will always have trained control riders, so no one gets left behind. There is also always a short introduction to safety rules !
Exact routes, meeting time, and future rides will be posted every Monday morning at www.teamvelosport.com (Team Blog and photos) or www.rocknroadcyclery.net (News and Blog)
For further detailed information, please contact John Dang (email@example.com) and/or Matthias Jezek(firstname.lastname@example.org).
