Cog Wild is the place for skills instruction in central Oregon: our level 1 and level 2 PMBIA certified coaches in both Bend and Oakridge are geared up to help you achieve your mountain bike goals. This fall there are are number of opportunities to join group clinics or take a private lesson with our talented coaches.
Two levels of our popular Progression Sessions for Central Oregon locals are on the schedule this fall. Join a cohort of like minded folks for three, two hour “after work” sessions to work on fundamentals in the Level 1 session in September or tackle trail features like drops, jumps and fast corners with the Level 2 session in October. Coach Lev Stryker will lead both sessions, he’s a PMBIA level 2 coach and coach certifier, Cascadia Junior Cycling’s head enduro coach and the owner of Cog Wild.
Jumping for Oldies
The early September session of Jumping for Oldies class sold out quickly so we added a second session for late September. Coach Erika Schmid will get you jumping for sure: she’s a PMBIA air instructor and travels the country as an advanced skills coach with Ladies Allride and has guided with Cog Wild since the early 2000s!
Cascadia Junior Cycling
There are skills rides for the kids too: Cascadia Junior Cycling’s fall programs start the week of September 11th; join us for after school race or recreation focused rides for ages 5 though 18.
We’re excited to have Coach Kenny Stone guiding and coaching with Cog Wild in Oakridge again this year. He’s a level 2 PMBIA certified coach, pro downhill racer and travels the country to help with Soldiers on Singletrack rides. He’s available for private clinics daily and is coaching two group clinics in September. Dive into the nuances of riding with speed at the Downhill clinic on September 16 or get your flow on with the Flow clinic on September 30.
Skills sessions are available year round as the weather allows.
