SimplyMTB local experts will host mountain biking fundamentals clinics on a custom-built course. Courses are free with a paid ticket to the show, but donations will be accepted to support wheelsforlife.org. Plus, ride the Jordan River Trail to the show and valet your bike for free, June 25-27 at Utah State Fairpark.

The outdoor recreation space has seen tremendous growth over the last few years. All facets of the outdoor industry are seeing an explosion of novice interest. In response, Outside Adventure Expo has partnered with certified local experts to center the event’s education series in foundational clinics teaching entry-level skills for new mountain bikers and messaging around stewardship, responsible recreation tips, and outdoor sustainability.  

Outside Adventure Expo and the local mountain biking experts at SimplyMTB have partnered to offer a tailored mountain bike clinic on a custom mountain bike course located at Utah State Fairpark Friday – Sunday, June 25-27 as part of the event.  SimplyMTB coaches are certified Professional Mountain Bike Instructors Association (PMBIA) trainers based in Salt Lake City in the heart of the Wasatch Mountains.  Follow SimplyMTB on Instagram @simply_mtb. 

“Mountain Bike lessons are for beginners who have just started riding, seasoned pros, and everyone in between—we’ve never met a rider who hasn’t needed to work on their skills.  Our clinics at Outside Adventure Expo will teach you the skills it takes to stay safe on your bike or simply, fine-tune the fundamentals you need to improve. Our goal is to help you gain confidence on your bike and apply what you learn to all aspects of your riding.”

Jamie Bangerter, Founder and Head Coach of SimplyMTB
