Shine Mountain Bike Skills School at the 2014 Bootleg Canyon Gravity Fest

Boulder City, Nevada – About 30 miles outside of Las Vegas, Bootleg Canyon is an excellent place to practice and become more comfortable with looser terrain and serious rock sections. Although an infamously rowdy venue, trails for all abilities, with scenic views of Lake Mead, do in-fact exist. All Mountain Cyclery, a well equipped mountain bike specific, service and retail shop is located on the main road, just below the canyon. The shop offers rental bikes from Specialized and a great protective gear and mountain bike parts selection.

Bootleg Canyon Gravity Fest:

The weekend following Thanksgiving, November 28th – 30th 2014, Downhill Mike, with the help of local bike shop All Mountain Cyclery, will host the Bootleg Canyon Gravity Fest.  Shuttles, Live Music, and T-shirts to remember it by are bootall included in your gravity fest registration.  Downhill Mike wants you all to know that this is a non-competitive, fun, event, and Saturday night will feature a party with WILD TURKEY!

Shine Skills School:

Over the course of the weekend, Shine Riders Company, a womens mountain biking company based in Northern California, will offer 3 skills clinics for women of varying ability levels and riding styles.  Riders may sign up for one or more clinic, building upon skills as they progress through the weekend.  Class is over at 3pm, and students will be encouraged to utilize the remaining hour of shuttle time for riding, and “hot laps” on the shuttle to utilize new skills.  All are welcome on the 3pm rides!
