Expert Mountain Bike Coaching in Reno
Ride Reno and be amazed at what you can achieve!
You’ve heard the saying “practice makes perfect.”
But what if you don’t have time to practice? What if it’s hard to get out into nature or find a good place to ride? What if you just want to get better at mountain biking, but don’t know where to start?
That’s where we come in. Ronnie’s Battle Born Prodigies is here to help you learn how to improve your skills, no matter what level you’re at. I offer group lessons and private lessons for beginners, intermediates, and advanced riders alike. I am a certified & experience mountain bike coach who is passionate about mountain biking and love helping people reach their potential—so I’ll make sure you get the best instruction possible!
Mountain biking is a fun way to get outside and see the world, but it’s also a great way to improve your health and fitness. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, get strong, or just have fun with friends, mountain biking is an excellent way to do it.
If you’re new to mountain biking, I have lessons for you. But if you’re an experienced rider looking for some new skills, I can help with that too.
My private lessons are perfect for individuals who want to learn how to ride a bike in a structured environment with one-on-one instruction from an expert instructor. Or maybe you want more of a group setting, in which case group lessons might be right up your alley! Either way, I will be able to help you reach all of your goals.
Finally, for the Groms, we offer Summer Camps in Reno so your little shredder can learn to ride safely and have fun this summer.
Grab your bike, your helmet and your buddies and come ride with me in The Biggest Little City In The World!
I recently went on vacation in Tahoe with my dad and we decided to do two lessons with Ronnie while we were there. We've both been riding regularly for the past several years but wanted to have a professional take a look at our riding to see where we could improve, and Ronnie did just that. He did a great job breaking down a variety of different skills that we needed to work on while making it super fun at the same time. We came away from both the sessions better and more knowledgeable riders.
My son (6) and I (36) had a great lesson with Ronnie. I've been trying to get into mountain biking for some time and my son is now at the age that he will blow past me on the trails if I don't hone in some of the necessary fundamentals. I can't say this enough, Ronnie is a great coach. He doesn't let you get lazy in your riding and continuously reminds you of the safety practices. Definitely recommend Ronnie for any sort of lessons but feel that private family lessons are the best as you get great information/skills to then enjoy on a family ride together. We look forward to future lessons/riding with Ronnie.
Ronnie is very thoughtful in his approach and works to connect with each kid at not only their skill level, but also their interest level. He is super safety conscious which I’m very thankful for in ensuring our kids are taught how to ride responsibly. We will for sure be doing more lessons with Ronnie. Great coach and all around great guy you can trust!
