The trip runs on rocky and partially wet trails above treeline (intermediate level) and includes a fair bit of uphill. We are not in a hurry, will wait for everybody and take everybody's needs and different abilities into consideration. Riding trails with a group means there will be a lot of stop-and-go and chatting on the way. Make sure you bring enough clothing to keep warm!</p><p>If the weather turns really bad we'll find a less exposed route. Worst case scenario is that we stay in Geilo and ride/ practise on man-made trails.</p><p><br></p><p>Nina Gässler is a<strong> certified instructor for NMIG </strong>(Norwegian Mountainbike Instructor and Guide).</p><p>Nina believe that learning and practicing (new) skills works best in a positive, including and supporting environment. No stress, no pressure, no unachievable demands. This is why we organize a "women only course".</p><p><br></p><p><strong>Please note</strong>: You need a mountain bike in good condition (you need to be able to lower the seat), helmet, clothing according to the weather, enough to eat and drink during the lesson/guided tour.</p><p><br></p><p><strong>Note</strong>: only 10 spaces available per course.</p><p>-------------------</p><p>Expect two social sessions with playful exercises, learning (new) skills and room for laughter.
