Mountain Biking Group Lessons for Women in Fort McMurray

Learn the fundamental and necessary skills to ride a mountain bike on green (beginner) to blue (intermediate) singletrack trails.

I’m pumped to once again offer a series of beginner mountain biking group lessons for women in Fort McMurray. No prior mountain biking experience is required.

You do not need a high level of fitness either. The skill development drills are short with lots of opportunity to take breaks.

At the end of the lesson, we will do a very short group ride together if time permits.

Each workshop is capped at 6 women to provide a more personalized experience. Everyone will receive feedback for each drill as they practice.

The first series of group lessons will focus on body positioning, gearing and braking. I will offer additional workshops for women to build upon these skills from spring to early fall. Sign up to my newsletter HERE to get the details and follow me on Facebook HERE.


Choose between two dates. If none of these work, no worries. There will be more in the future.

Awesome mtn bike workshop

Tammy is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things biking!
I’m an experienced rider but have never taken a lesson and I felt it was worth every penny to go back to the basics of body positioning and braking. Highly recommend!

Thank you for this, Sarah! There's always something to new to learn, and relearn, right? I'm so happy to know you see it this way. The fundamentals I taught in this workshop we will never stop practicing and always work to make them sharper. Mountain biking is such a technical sport and I'm glad you grasped this. I'm stoked this season to continue helping riders of all levels learn more about mountain biking. Hope to see you in some other clinics and on the trails too. Happy riding!

Susan Konski
Beginner Level MTB Skills Workshop for Women

It was a well spent 1.5 hours with you, Tammy Slauenwhite, and I would recommend Tammy to anyone thinking about getting into mountain biking (she's a great coach)! While I have been riding for a while, I had not ridden much in the past few years and needed to build some confidence again. This Beginner Level was good for confidence building and I did learn some new things as well. Small group is good and allows for some practice of new skills. Tammy also offers private lessons if you are wanting more one-on-one skill building.

Susan, thank you for your review! I'm so glad you enjoyed the workshop and found it helpful in rebuilding your confidence on the mountain bike. Our small group setting allows for plenty of individual practice with new skills, which is great for building confidence and skills retention. Plus we get to know each other on a more personal basis, and make some new riding buddies. Hope to see you in the next one. Happy riding!

Lindsey O’Donnell

Great session! Tammy makes you feel at ease and comfortable. She explains well and gives time for group to practice skills throughout session . Felt more comfortable on bike after this workshop ☺️ looking forward to adding on and growing stronger in skill and knowledge in up coming workshops.

Thanks for the great review, Lindsey! I'm glad you enjoyed the session and felt more comfortable on the bike afterward. That's the ultimate goal, right? I hope to see you at my other workshops soon! Happy riding!

Caroline Boudreault

I liked the MTB workshop but I have to be honest I was hoping for it to be a little more challenging. I learned stuff about the gears and really liked meeting new people. I have not use my bike much in the trails and I am quite rusty. I would love to go for an easy /intermediate ride with you sometime if that’s even possible and I would be willing to pay a certain amount as well of course but not a ride that involves joining the bike club. Hope to have more workshops . Have a great time out there.

Thanks for your review, Caroline. I'll be honest too - you probably should have read the workshop details as it was clearly advertised as a beginner level skills development workshop. If you wanted something more advanced, you should have asked about the intermediate+ level skills workshops. Anyway, I'm glad you learned some things and enjoyed meeting others. Happy riding.

Mountain bike basics

Love Tammy’s energy and knowledge. The small group size for the clinic allows lots of time for practice and feedback and questions. Not being a mountain biker, there were lots of things I wasn’t sure about but Tammy never made me feel silly for asking. Thank you for that. Loads of fun and what a great way to spend a Saturday morning.

Thank you, Alana! I am glad you enjoyed my clinic and found the small group size to be helpful. I agree that's it important. I'm also so happy to know that you have been able to learn some basics on mountain biking and have had loads of fun doing it! Hope to see you in the next one. Happy riding!
