MTB Lessons

 

Our model of teaching and skill progressions are based on the Professional Mountain Bike Instructors Association (PMBI).  Our coaches are either certified PMBI instructors themselves, or they are trained in-house by one of our certified PMBI instructors.

 

Beginner Mountain Bike

This two-hour lesson is for those who are new to mountain biking or who are looking to get into mountain biking for the very first time.  This lesson will begin in with flat ground stations to teach fundamental skills of mountain biking.  As the lesson progresses, riders will be introduced to the trail through the Skills Park and progress to the Duluth Traverse.  An out and back ride on the Duluth Traverse will give each rider a confidence building experience. 

The Beginner Mountain Bike lesson will build confidence to progress those who are new to mountain biking.  After the lesson is over, the rental bike and all protective gear is good for the remainder of the day.

Beginner Downhill

This two-hour clinic is for beginner to intermediate level riders wanting to receive some coaching, insight and tips into the world of downhill mountain biking.  Riders must demonstrate basic bike-handling skills prior to progressing onto the downhill trails.

Each two-hour clinic will start with laps in our Skills Park where all riders will be instructed on fundamental skills to enhance their downhill riding as well as build confidence.  Following these initial laps, the clinic will then move to the chairlift and riders will be guided down one of our beginner-level mountain bike trails.  Additional laps on the chairlift will be made as time allows.  After the clinic is over, your ticket, rental bike and all protective gear is good for the remainder of the day.
