Mountain Bike Skills Clinics

Hello PB&Jer’s,

Like all of you, the coaching team at PB&J has been learning how to navigate a “new normal” with the coronavirus. In these stressful and uncertain times we understand, more than ever, the value of being out in nature and enjoying the hobbies you are passionate about. Sadly, with so many unknowns about the virus and its ability to spread, the PB&J team as made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 coaching season.

Creating a fun, positive, and encouraging experience on the trails has always been PB&J’s goal. We care about each our clients and your experience with us. We made this decision out of an abundance of caution for our clients and our coaches. With so much uncertainty surrounding this pandemic we chose prioritized safety and wellness in order to mitigate any prolonged impact related to the virus.

The team was excited to see all of you on the trails and learn some new skills together. Rest assured, we are putting our energy into planning and we are looking forward to restarting clinics with you in 2021. While we cannot promise anything, please stay in touch for future announcements this summer. If the opportunity arises, we may revisit this decision later in the season. Until then, we look forward to seeing you outside and enjoying the trails in a socially appropriate way!
