Description: The Holyoke range trails adjacent to Hampshire College are some of the most popular hiking and biking trails in western Massachusetts. Mountain biking differs from road biking in that all riding will take place on dirt trails in the woods and fields around Hampshire. This class is designed for the beginning level rider. Students may borrow mountain bikes and helmets from the Outdoor Program equipment room with a valid ID. Emphasis will be placed on safety, fun, fitness, trail identification and navigating obstacles. Students in this class should be prepared to spend 2-3 hours outdoors and be in good physical condition. Participants should wear sturdy tennis shoes or bike shoes (no sandals). 5-College students will be graded pass/fail. *Note: If weather conditions aren't favorable, hiking may be substituted for classes where mountain biking is not possible.
