Update

Update: There is the potential of the price increasing slightly ($25-50 worst case) base on attendance to cover costs to host the event. If we get 15-20 riders the price will stay at $150, less than 15 riders will cause the price to increase a bit to cover required costs. I will post updates as the event draws closer.

Still plenty of spots available for this event. Don't hesitate if you are interested, need a few more riders to cover the costs.

Also, Ryan Young will be able to provide a few bikes as rentals for the event at $200 for the weekend.

Would it be safe to go ahead and reserve a hotel or should I hold off for a couple more weeks?

I would make reservation now. Worst case, most hotels have a 24 hour cancellation policy for refund but once they are full you're out of luck.

This is a little off topic as there is no way I can get there for this, but what would you consider the minimum experience/ability level to take this type of class? I am kind of thinking about attempting one next summer.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

We had plenty of novice riders at the last RY clinic. I should know, as I was one of them. Had my Trials bike for 1 month and attended Ryan's clinic sponsored by Metrolina Trials Riders this past March. Wanted to learn to do things the right way before I formed a bunch of bad habits.

Hands down the best money you can spend.

Before taking many steps up the ladder and attending a school which will certainly help with advanced techniques, its well worth getting familiar with the basics, if you are new to trials.

A very good way of doing this is to get a copy of the excellent Bernie Schrieber book, which explains the basics very well indeed. When you have got an understanding of the basics, is the time to look at further training, to help with the more difficult stuff.

I have heard that book recommended before, but not sure where people are getting it from. I found it on Amazon and a used copy is 199 bucks. Is there a digital copy or a cheaper version that folks are talking about?

Talk to the guys at Trials Inc. There was a new (old) supply of the book last year. Most clubs bought several cases.

You've clearly not attended a Ryan Young school, he's going to spend the first day on as basic of techniques as you can get.

Trying to steer anyone away from his school to read a book would be pretty damn silly considering the man spent a considerable amount of time learning from Bernie back in the day!

GO TO THE RYP COURSE!

It's well worth it, he starts with basics and by the end of day 2 you're doing splatters. I'd take it again.

The only thing I'd suggest to work on before the course, is balancing on the pegs. Its not necessary but makes the rest of the course easier. If you can't do it you should still go.
