Private Coaching & Instruction

Get one on one mountain bike coaching, tailored riding lessons and video analysis with a certified, expert instructor

Re-develop your riding...

While skills camps and clinics provide a cost effective way to help a rider improve, receiving dedicated one-on-one private coaching and instruction with industry certified professionals will provide you with the fastest return on your training investment and skills development. 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. No matter what it is that you are trying to accomplish through your mountain bike lessons, our focus and methodology will take you from the introduction of the skill to the mastery of that same skill in the shortest time possible.

Our coaches and instructors use industry leading video analysis tools to record video of you so we can review and compare the maneuver while on the trail and make immediate corrections with lasting results.

If you are from out of town, combine mountain bike private lessons with your guided rides and get the most out of your trip to the corridor.

We guarantee that when you spend a day with one of our cycling coaches, you will see that it is one of the best investments you can make to improve your riding skills.

The Ultimate Rider Development

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 Coaching, So You Ride Like A Pro

RideHub Mountain Bike Skills Instruction is guaranteed to improve your riding, or your money back.

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 do you need to bring?

Mountain Bike

Your mountain bike should be in good working order and should have been recently serviced. Our Private Coaching instructors will perform a safety check on your bike prior to the course starting and while we will assist with any minor issues that are identified, participants are ultimately responsible for the condition of their own bicycle. Participants with unsafe bicycles will not be allow to participate.

Your bicycle should have the following minimum equipment spec:

  • 2″ or wider knobby tires
  • Front Suspension (with 4″ of travel minimum)
  • At least 10 Gears
  • Disc Brakes

If your bicycle does not meet the minimum specifications, rental bicycles are available at a preferred rate for participants.

Pedals & Shoes

Depending on the skill set that your lesson will be focusing on, you may be asked by your cycling coach or instructor to use flat pedals (no clips or clipless) for both safety and development reasons. 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.

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.

Otherwise, if you are renting a bike, please bring your clipless pedals and shoes that you are comfortable riding 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 body armor that you are comfortable spending the day 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 lesson.

Gloves & protective eyewear are also recommended.

Hydration & Snacks

Because we will be spending a good portion of the day on the trails, 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!

Lunch will be provided for Full-Day mountain bike lessons, however for “high-output” individuals, please bring any additional snacks/bars that you will need to consume with you.
