Designed for individuals and private groups for up to 4 people, RideHub Private Coaching & Instruction enables riders with one of the industry’s most advanced skills coaching programs.

Private MTB Instruction

I invested a few days into some private skills coaching with the RideHub team and I just want to say thank you for the tremendous support with my riding. I look forward to shredding the trails all season and coming for a refresher before the start of next season. Thank you!

Private MTB Instruction

By far the best skills coaching I have ever received on a bike. Matt took the time to break my riding down to it’s core pieces and through his lessons help me understand why I had trouble progressing further with my skills. I highly recommend mountain bike private lessons!

What you need to bring
Your Mountain Bike
Your mountain bike should be in good working order and should have been recently serviced. Our Skills Camp instructors will perform a safety check on your bike prior to the start of the course. While we will assist with any minor issues that are identified, participants are ultimately responsible for the condition of their own bicycle. Riders with unsafe bicycles will not be allowed to participate.

Your mountain bike should have suspension, at least 10 gears and tires that are wider than 2". If you require a rental bike as part of your Skills Clinic, please let us know!
Pedals & Shoes
RideHub always recommends using Flat Pedals (no clips or cleats) when developing a skill. Flat pedals force a rider to use correct pedal position while performing maneuvers. We have a limited stock of Flat Pedals so let us know as early as possible if you need to borrow some. We also sell them!

As equally important as pedals are your shoes. A good quality flat soled Mountain Biking shoe should be used with flat pedals. Flat pedal shoes can be purchased from your local bike shop and are a great piece of kit to invest in.
Armor & Protection
Helmets are mandatory for all participants in any cycling activity. There are no exceptions to this rule.

It is advised that you also bring any and all body armor that you are comfortable spending the duration of the course in. Most riders will bring knee/shin protection and some will also bring elbow protection. Your mountain bike coach may also wear armor they are comfortable in. If it helps your confidence and doesn’t hinder your endurance, consider bringing it. Ultimately, it is your decision how much you want to armor up for your clinic.

Gloves & protective eyewear are also recommended.
Hydration & Snacks
Because we will be spending a good portion of the day on our bikes, it is your responsibility to keep yourself hydrated – and it’s easy to forget when you are having fun. Please make sure your water bottle or hydration pack is full of fresh water when you arrive.

Remember, practicing Mountain Bike Skills can sometimes be more exhausting that just riding your bike, especially when the sun is out and we don’t have a forest canopy to protect us during drills.
Liability Waiver
An understood & signed Liability Waiver is require from anyone who wishes to participate in a cycling related activity with the Archer Adventure Company Inc.

Please review our waiver (click on this box) and if you have any questions regarding it, or the rights you are waiving by signing it, please contact us right away. You will be emailed a link to fill and sign your waiver digitally when you book your experience. Please follow the instructions in a timely manner to avoid delays on the day of your course. If you are booking a lesson or experience for more than one participant, please ensure that all participants in your group have completed their paperwork.
Frequently asked questions
What about the weather?
Unlike a lot of other riding areas, coastal British Columbia is actually a temperate rainforest, which means it rains – a lot. But alas, that also means many of our trails were designed to deal with the rain. Also thanks to an incredibly dense canopy even though it may be slashing rain outside, under the canopy is pretty well protected from the harshest of the elements. So do we ride mountain bikes in the rain? Yep. If the weather is going to be a safety risk (ie. Lightning, Windstorms), we will look to reschedule your mountain bike lesson. If you are a fair weather rider only (not that we are judging you!) and you want to cancel or reschedule our normal cancellation policies will apply. Remember, #itsalwayssunnyinsquamish
What are all the certifications?
Recognized globally, there are two Mountain Bike Skills Instructor certification paths. The PMBI is the Whistler Bike Park standard and has been adopted by many bike parks across Canada and throughout the world and is based in Whistler BC. The BICP was born from the original CMIC (Canadian Mountain Bike Instructor Certification) program. It is recognized worldwide with a heavy focus on trail riding and is now headquartered in Bellingham, WA. Both programs provide certifications that are recognized around the world for Mountain Bike instructors. The interesting thing about these programs is that they are *VERY* different but both are very valuable. Our head instructor has been certified in *BOTH* of these certification programs allowing RideHub to develop a coaching curriculum and protocol that is entirely unique and draws on the best parts of these two global certifications. The NCCP is a Coaching Certification program that is sport agnostic which focuses on how to be a coach, not specifically teaching Mountain Biking skills and we have staff certified through this nationally recognized organization.
Private lessons or Skills Camps?
Do you like meeting new people? Do you like saving a bit of money? Are you OK sharing your instructor with a few other strangers? Booking a camp or clinic with other riders is a great way to get some focused skill development and it’s great bang for the buck. Now if you are looking for the absolute best investment of your training dollar, Private Mountain Bike lessons are hard to beat. You get one-on-one time with an instructor and we can tailor the lesson to focus on the key areas you want to develop and we can skip the rest. All of the attention is on you and your riding.
Why are lessons expensive?
But are they? Everyone’s perception of value is different and if you shop around for Mountain Bike Private Lessons or Skills Clinics with other operators you will actually see that we are very competitively priced – but when you add all of the experience and certifications that we bring to our programs, our exceptional client reviews and our commitment to excellence, it's no brainer. Now think about this – how much does it cost to have a shop change both your tires and set them up for you? For about the same price, you can get a lesson that will do more for your riding than new tires ever will. #investinyourself
Do you use Video Analysis?
Video is one of the best ways to see what you are doing, which is especially helpful for visual learners. In group clinics we don't typically use video due to the time it takes to review, but it does happen occasionally. When we are working with a client in a Mountain Bike Private Lesson, we can shoot High-Speed footage in our practice area or on trail to slow down what you are doing and to analyze what is happening. From there we can determine a more specific correction to help improve your riding. When we are done with your lesson, we can upload your videos to a private shared folder where you can watch or download the videos for review later.
