The goal in Rock Slabs 201 is to progress our skills and test them on longer rock slabs and steeper rock rolls. We will go over braking techniques and safe body positions that are necessary to rock these features. We will be spending time on single black. We will break down what to do before the slab, on the slab and when exiting the slab.
The ideal candidate has completed our Rock Slabs 101 course or equivalent experience.
Bike skills needed: You enjoy riding trails like Rupert and Take Out The Donut but are eyeing up slabs like In and Out Burger.
Endurance needed: You lead an active lifestyle and are comfortable spending 2 hours on your bike, pedalling at a conversational pace uphill.
- June 10 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm
- August 12 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm

"I'm a rookie at MTB but with a lot of history riding around forests on bikes when younger, so I tend to tackle trails and features with zero knowledge, 100% instinct, so I decided to go get some professional instruction to see how I can up my game. The instructor was great and I really enjoyed the lesson and the chats we had on the climb up. I definitely discovered a few bad habits that I was able to pay attention to and hopefully have now rectified, and the instructor really helped me to understand how to take time to get off the bike and walk features, observing them from many angles before attempting them for the first time, picking a line according to my ability - this has given me a lot of confidence, culminating in me nailing a major rock roll the day after that I would have never tried before. Definitely worth it. Can't recommend enough."
"I took an intermediate bike skills course with Jo, and had a great experience. You can tell Jo doesn't just love to ride bikes, but she also enjoys sharing that passion with others. Her classes are fun and Jo communicates how to do each skill in a way that's easy to understand. She gave me time to practice each new skill before hitting the trails."
"This bike is truly an all-rounder e-mountain bike. It handled so well on jump trails like Miki's Magic, and still crushed the steep sections on Hot Tuna! As always, the team at Dialed In went out of their way to ensure the bike was set up properly for me and that I was prepared for a great day. 10/10 recommend"
