Course Description

If you are looking for a fun, new outdoor sport to try, eager to learn about mountain biking or interested in a try-before-you-buy experience, our fun Mountain Biking Discovery Course is for you.

After a brief review of bike safety, gear use and proper fit, we'll head out on a one-hour ride on our popular "plus bikes." Featuring a wider tire size and more traction, plus bikes deliver a smoother ride than traditional mountain bikes. Led by a biking expert, we'll ride on well-maintained single and double track trails to get a taste of this new sport – with your instructor providing tips and techniques along the way.

This lesson starts and ends at local trail site.

All necessary biking equipment is included.

Our trips and tours are led by experienced guides who are passionate about the great outdoors and excited to share a new adventure with you. Please join us today.

L.L.Bean does not usually cancel events due to inclement weather. However, we reserve the right to cancel an event at any time due to severe weather, low enrollment or other concerns. If L.L.Bean cancels your event, you will receive a full refund for the cost of your reservation.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
