Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance will conduct a basic skills class for kids at 9:30 a.m. Sunday at Duthie Hill near Issaquah.
The class costs $50 for Evergreen members, or non-members can join the organization for $30 per person or $50 per family. The three-hour course, open to children ages 8-13, will cover basics such as body and bike position, shifting, braking, climbing, descending and front wheel lifts.
The class is staged on the trails of Duthie Hill, a 120-acre mountain bike park built by Evergreen. The park is packed with twisty trails and obstacles designed to be welcoming to first-timers and challenging to experienced riders.
Evergreen is a mountain biking advocacy group whose work includes the Colonnade Bike Park under Interstate 5 in Seattle. The group also is helping build mountain bike trails at Tacoma’s Swan Creek Park.
