Back To Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park

Wow !  It's been almost 2 years since my last visit to Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park. I almost forgot how much fun it was riding at the park.

Still being a complete beginner, the only trail that I could safely enjoy was a 1.5 mile XC ( cross country ) Boot Camp trail. Relatively flat with no significant climbs, and just a couple tight climbing turns, the trail is ideal for novice riders.

But after a few runs I got bored, and tried to challenge myself on an intermediate trail called Moving On. That's when I realized that even my new K2 Base Sport full suspension bike  was not going to compensate my lack of confidence and skills  to tackle terrain beyond green runs.

In the center clearing at Duthie, I scanned the news board for beginner classes. As I mentioned before, Evergreen Mountain Biking Alliance offers classes for riders of all levels, from beginners to more advanced.

Introduction To Freeride teaches you all about  the freeriding basics. You'll learn to maintain good body position while conquering wheel lifts, obstacles, step-downs and drops.
