Ronnie’s Battle Born Prodigies offers customized Mountain Bike Coaching in Reno, NV for adults, kids, families, groups & corporate events.
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!
Ronnie has worked my 10 year old son over the past month and the progress has been tremendous. My son LOVES riding with him and is learning so much - Ronnie is an outstanding coach, super positive, supportive and pushes just enough so my son develops confidence and continues to progress.
Ronnie was very patient, clear with his instruction and gave inspiring demos complete with back flips. He interspersed his instruction with plenty of corny jokes to keep our spirits high. He also took video of us and of his demos so that we had those to reference back to after the session. All in all we can't wait for our next session with Ronnie! If you are on the fence about booking a session with Ronnie I would say don't delay, so that you can get going on learning proper riding techniques that will maximize your fun on the bike while keeping you safe at the same time.
My son and I (10 year old) signed up for a Family MTB lesson last minute and Ronnie was able to squeeze us in. We were blown away with the attentiveness and three hour plan he had prepared for us. It's clear he had worked with kids of all ages given his regular assessment of energy levels, water breaks and check-ins. We especially appreciated the 1:1 time, given the diluted focus of many of the riding camps out there. We will certainly be calling on Ronnie again when we return to the area.
