As a rider, do you notice all the different line choices in the moment, and do you notice any when riding a new trail in real time? What makes riding a new trail so exciting? Is it the unknown that gives us a sense of adventure? Do you always commit to those lines on a bike, and what happens if you change your lines midway? Are you gonna be ok? All of this is up to the rider, this is what makes mountain biking so unique and fun.
Some mountain bikers go uphill, some go downhill. You can usually tell from the sick outfits! What else does this compare to in life? What does it take to be a good rider? Does this compare to your reality, emotions and self consciousness as a rider and person? Do you feel good on the trail, or are you running away from whats chasing you in life. We all need an escape, and mountain biking could be yours also.
Some shred on the ground, some soar in the air. It’s never easy riding fast, but it feels like a blast. Set yourself up to be launched, not to be bunched. Look at your two feet and create those steps to succeed in what you want. That’s why when riding, we must make mental markers ahead and not be stuck on mental blockers instead.
Taking moments when we get them, what do we do and what we would do differently next time all in a blink of an eye. How you look at a line choice on a bike, how you look at problems in your life. Hard work and having fun can both be done on a bike and it feels way better than to hike. Adventure, exercise, and transportation on one machine, hah, that’s too far in between. It is a tool, not a jewel, so shred it.

This is not a one size fits all program! During our Mountain Bike Coaching session I work with you, your child or your group to make sure you achieve your riding goals in a safe and repeatable way. Whatever your skill level on a bike, I can help you get more out of your riding. Whether it’s riding your first trail, ripping round the pump track, slaying at the bike park or sending that double that you just can’t seem to clear, I will guide you step by step until what seemed daunting becomes achievable.
I teach MTB lessons for beginners and at an advanced level. I have over 14 years mountain bike riding and racing experience. I am an ICP Level 3 certified coach including 5 years coaching with Specialized Academy at Northstar Bike Park.
We work at your pace and build MTB skills in a steady, safe and consistent manner so you or your youth mountain biker can progress your trail riding in a fun way. I have a strong focus on teaching kids and teens to ride to their potential.
