Ronnie’s Battle Born Prodigies offers mountain bike coaching in South Lake Tahoe for adults, kids, families, groups & corporate events.
South Lake Tahoe is a popular destination for mountain biking, with a variety of trails suitable for riders of all skill levels. The area offers a mix of challenging single track trails and scenic routes that wind through the Sierra Nevada mountains.
One popular trail in the area is the Corral Trail, which features challenging terrain and stunning views of the lake. Another popular option is the Armstrong Pass Trail, which takes riders through dense forests and offers a mix of technical and flowy sections.
For those looking for a more leisurely ride, the Tahoe Rim Trail offers a smooth, non-technical route with breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. No matter what type of riding you’re looking for, South Lake Tahoe has something to offer.
With years of experience and a passion for the sport, I am dedicated to helping you reach your goals and have fun while doing it. I am certified and experienced in a variety of disciplines, including cross-country, downhill, and freeride.

Ronnie is a fantastic teacher and did a great job of providing instruction to both of us, even though we are at very different skill levels. He made sure he understood what riding/skills we wanted to focus on and gave us great foundational skills to work on.By the end of our session I realized that I could have been riding better for the past 35 years! Better late than never!
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.
We booked a group lesson with Ronnie because we were looking to experience some Tahoe trails as a family and see if we could all ride a bit better....especially me & my wife! Ronnie was super patient with all of us and walked us through some basics before we hit the trails. We never felt out of our depth on anything we were riding and our children had a wonderful day showing us just how much we have to learn. The fact that it was just our family made the day feel much more exclusive and personal. If you are in Lake Tahoe and are looking to go mountain biking you should definitely consider adding Ronnie to your list of potential teachers.
