On my 47th birthday a couple days ago, The Wife and I explored the trails at Sunset East in Erie, CO.
What fun! An easy climb with green, blue and black descents, all flowy and lovely. It’s the perfect layout for riders of different levels to enjoy mountain biking. Go slow, go fast, go little or go big. It’s all there. I, for one, plan to nab the blue KOM.
On Oct. 1, 2016 I’m teaching a Level 2 skills class. Learn to ride these trails (and others) with style!
Ride the Sunset East trails with style! Have tons of fun in Erie, CO — and everywhere else you ride!
Yummy flow on the green line.
Boosting the black line.
Erie Singletrack Advocates asked us to teach classes at the Sunset East Trails, and we are stoked to do it!
We will teach you how to ride all kinds of terrain with more confidence and speed, but we’ll focus on the “flow” terrain at Sunset East.
Because riders will leave the ground, this is a Level 2 class. You should be a relatively fit, experienced rider. If you’ve taken a Level 1 Lee Likes Bikes class, that’s excellent but not necessary.
We’ll start with the fundamentals that inform all great riding — positions, braking, cornering, pumping and — yes! — jumping. We will build your skills and confidence one step at a time. You will have fun. You will stay safe. If all goes well, you’ll shred the black line with style.
