Lessons

Due to our current staffing limitations, we can only offer lessons for ability levels 1 – 3. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

MTB Ability Levels

First Timers - Level 1: You have no experience mountain biking and have never ridden off road. You are able to ride a bike comfortably on paved roads. You need to learn how to brake safely on dirt/gravel, to handle corners on single track trails and learn to balance on your bike standing on level pedals.
Your goal is to learn basic bike control and to have your first taste of downhill mountain biking.

Limited Mileage - Level 2: You are pretty new to mountain biking but are fairly confident with basic body position of level pedals on flat trails with a shallow gradient. You can control bike speed and direction but have trouble keeping the front wheel straight while riding on features such as roots and rocks.
Your goal is to learn how to gradually approach riding on green trails with confidence.

Green Rider - Level 3: You have done at least one season of frequent downhill mountain biking and are looking to increase your capability to ride more features and work towards riding blue trails. You can control bike speed and direction on moderate gradients without needing to put your feet down. You’re comfortable at slower speeds on more technical trails with roots, loose rocks and tight single track but mainly ride green trails.
Your goal is to gain confidence in your downhill biking ability and start trying out easier blue runs.
