Are you looking to improve your mountain biking skills and take your riding to the next level? Look no further. As an ICP Level 3 certified coach I am here to help you reach your goals, whether you’re a beginner looking to learn the basics or an experienced rider looking to fine-tune your technique.
Located in the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains, my coaching sessions take advantage of the diverse and challenging terrain that Truckee has to offer. From flowy singletrack to technical descents, there is something for every rider.
Coaching sessions are tailored to your individual needs and goals, and can include a range of techniques, such as body position, braking, cornering, and jumping. I also offer group coaching sessions for those looking to ride and learn with friends.
Finally, for the Groms, we offer Summer Camps in Truckee so your little shredder can learn to ride safely and have fun this summer.
Don’t let fear or lack of confidence hold you back from reaching your full potential on the trails. Sign up for a coaching session today and take your mountain biking to new heights.
My boys have been coached by Ronnie for a few years and he never disappoints. The progression we have seen under his coaching has been second to none. Ronnie took our green mtb'er and turned him into a top ten DH racing finisher. The boys love him, he makes every session fun and he know just how far to push your child to get the most out of their riding.
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.
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.
