Bentonville, AR - Believe it or not, Northwest Arkansas is considered a premier up and coming mountain biking destination in the country right now. Why? Because the community and the local Walton Family Foundation take mountain biking seriously so they hired the best trail builders in the business to design an epic trail system within city limits with paved bike paths leading to every trailhead. The result, a plethora of different trails to match any level of experience including some of the most competitive trails in the U.S. As if all this wasn't enough, the lower altitude allows enthusiasts to ride almost year-round.
This clinic will be hosted at Slaughter Pen recreation area where we will spend the morning using the natural terrain and obstacles to learn lots of awesome skills. In the afternoons we'll hop on the nearby trail system which incorporates progressive features, but also provides alternatives for riders of all levels. There's something for everyone and lots of opportunites to practice with special features including log rides, drops, jumps and a free ride area with table top jumps, bermed turns, and a wall ride.
