Mountain Biking is very appealing to kids, it’s physically & mentally challenging, gets them outside into nature, & let’s face it, mountain biking is just a cool sport!

So what do you do when your child wants to learn to ride a mountain bike or improve their mountain bike skills?  It seems too scary/dangerous/difficult right? Well, as with any other sport, the best advice is to turn to a Professional Coach.

I am very experienced with coaching child and youth mountain bikers & helping them to progress their mountain bike skills in a safe & repeatable way.  I am an ICP Level 3 Certified Mountain Bike Coach (the highest offered) and I am Wilderness First Responder Certified.

I know that as a parent your time and resources can be limited so I offer great value Private Mountain Bike Coaching Sessions so your child or youth mountain biker (age 6 to 12) can improve their riding quickly.

I offer discount for repeat custom.

If you have more than one child, take advantage of my Kids Group Mountain Bike Coaching which offers the same great coaching at a lower hourly rate for groups of 2 to 6 youth mountain bikers.

Participants (riders) must be able to ride standing up for 300+ feet and be able to ride uphill. We do not “teach kids how to ride a bike”, we develop mountain bike skills in kids and adults who can already ride a bike. We are not a babysitting service. Please only schedule if your child meets the minimum riding requirements and is willing and eager to ride and learn.

If you have any questions prior to booking please use the contact form, email me or call me. I am always happy to hear from clients, both old and new.
