Varies for all lessons.


Beginner to advanced. Skills clinics are customized for you or your group.

Terrain & Trails

Local trails are mostly fast and flowy, but we’ll incorporate more technical or advanced features to challenge your newly developed skills.

Recommended Clothing & Gear

Exercise clothes, such as comfortable shorts, t-shirts and tennis shoes are great, as well as a long sleeve sweatshirt or lightweight jacket. Hydration packs are recommended for carrying drinking water. Helmets are required on all rides. Gloves are recommended. Pads are optional if they will make you feel more comfortable trying new things.


Can I use my own bike?

Yes! Your own mountain bike is best because you are used to it, but we can get you a mountain bike if needed.

If you need a rental bike, please contact Willamette Mountain Mercantile in Oakridge. They can get you set up on a bike for your lesson.

I have been riding for a long time, what can you teach me?

Our coaches have lots of experience with all skill levels. For more advanced riders, we can work on technical trail riding, jumps and high speed cornering.

I would like more than a one-day clinic. Do you offer anything?

At this time, we recommend doing more than one skills clinic or add day tours to enhance your riding experience.
