Hey... this is DArren, I live out here in sherwood park...
I've noticed over the past while that there is an increased interest in learning how to trials ride...
I am willing to show people the basics and fundamentals they will need to learn this type of riding...

We will meet at various places around the city, sherwood park, downtown, and UofA area aprox once every week, pending on interest... you can use almost any type of bike to come and participate, suspension/ hardtail/ trials specific bike, all can be used to learn the basics...

Like anything in life, the right tool for the job always makes it easier... there will always be different types of trials bikes kicking around, so if you are wondering what they are all about, I urge you to come and try them out, mine is always available for people to try...

we will always be sticking around a couple block radius for rides, so people can even come walking along with us, they will have an easy time keeping up

I will also help you with bike set ups if need be... it makes a big difference sometimes
obstacles will be things like curbs and low retaining walls... Hope to see you out!

Meeting place will be Festival place in sherwood park... there is a little lake there with some stairs, retaining walls and benches... great place to learn some basics...

is this thread still kickin? Darren I think I've met you a few times before, but never ridden with you so it would be good to get together. I'm up for any type of terrain really, so someone chime in here and lets find something fun to ride.

thread is still going... offer is still valid... I ride about every other day... most the time it's just around sherwood park...
if you are looking for someone to help you out with certain skills then I would be happy to spend some time playing around a parking lot

If you know the basics of trials riding, which I assume you do... you should just check out edmonton trials rides and come out with who ever posts up a ride time... we have new people join us regularly and group rides usually have up to 5 people riding from beginner to top provincial riders

ask questions if you are unsure about where we meet...

hope to see you soon

you bet... I'm around most of next week if you can get out for a ride in the evening... I usually stick around local spots in sherwood park... or Down town edmonton is always a good place to get started...
let me know if you can get out in the next week

Festival place/around the mall are good. The business area of the park on the west side has tons of good beginner and advanced riding. Haythorne school? The one north/east of bev facey has some cool stuff out front.
Lots of good beginner stuff around businesses along baseline, the trails behind glen allen always had some good noob lines.
Around millenium in the business area has tons of various skill level riding.

I would say festival/mall area and west end business is your best for condensed riding.

You should msg me when you're available to ride
