Harrisonburg VA/ Shenandoah Valley
We teach primarily at these locations but do travel further for a fee!
We are located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley surrounded by riding opportunities for all levels of riders. TakeAim Cycling moved here because of the diversity of trails to ride and teach on. From the Stokesville Campground's flow trails to the Downhill Trails of Massanutten Bike Park.
We encourage riders looking for instruction to make a trip down for a combination of instruction and riding. We can provide recommendations for places to ride, eat, and sleep.
Below you will find our favorite places to instruct. We charge $40hr for any travel beyond 1hr from Harrisonburg VA. Email us for special rates. firstname.lastname@example.org
Stokesville Campground: Flow trails with great corners, berms, rollers and some small jumps.
The Stokesville Campground is in the heart of the riding of the George Washington National Forest. The campground has almost 4 miles of machine built trails that are great for all levels of riders. It is also within riding distance of day's worth of riding.
The campground has showers, bathrooms, small rustic cabins, and electric hookup for RVs as well as many tent spots. The views across the valley and the sunrises definitely make this a special place for any rider or camper to be.
This is one of our favorite places to teach cornering and riding over logs amongst other things.
Day use fee is $10 a person and the camping fee is $15 per car/1st person. The Stokesville Market sells passes. Or contact Chris Scott through www.stokesvillecampground.com
Massanutten Western Slopes: Rocks, Descending, Climbing, Techy Corners
If you want to improve your rock riding, line choice, long climbs, and big descents, then come here to get a taste of the efforts of the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition. The Western Slopes are built by SVBC and is the home of the Hoo-Ha XC and Enduro races. Twenty minutes out of town, these trails are easy to access and fun.
You need to get a $10 day pass each time you ride here or buy a season pass for $50. All the money goes back to the club for building and maintaining more trail. http://svbcoalition.org/our-riding/mountain-biking/massanutten/
This is a favorite place for instructing on rocks and working on those technical skills for backcountry and enduro style riding. No matter the level of skills, there is something here for everyone.
