Expert Mountain Bike Coaching in South Lake Tahoe
A local expert offering MTB Coaching for riders of all levels.
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.
Coaching Sessions take place on some of the best trails in the South Lake Tahoe area, and I offer both group and private lessons.
I had so much fun in my first lesson with Ronnie! His teaching style is very laidback while still being well organized. He took time through the lesson to check in with me about how I was doing and what I wanted to work on. I’m looking forward to taking more lessons with him.
We both ride EMTB's and Ronnie was able to explain how to get the most positive results from our bikes by using different power setting and using the bike in ways we had not previously thought of. We both learned a lot during our lesson and even more when we are now practicing the drills he taught us. We will definitely be scheduling further lessons.
My son and I recently had a private lesson with Ronnie over the weekend. Ronnie is an excellent MTB coach! Not only is Ronnie extremely knowledgeable, but he was able to connect with my son using examples he could relate to. I thought this was really unique. You get the sense right away that Ronnie is really passionate about teaching you the right fundamentals so your progression is safe and well founded. We did a 3 hour session with Ronnie and he kept the session engaging with great energy along with some really cheesy jokes that kept a smile on our faces. We can’t recommend Ronnie enough, he is a top notch MTB coach!
