FAQ for Skills Instruction
Can I use my own bike?
Yes! Your own mountain bike is best because you are used to it and you’ll likely ride it after the lesson. If you’d like to try a different bike we have DEMO BIKES for rent.
If doing a downhill lesson at Mt. Bachelor, please contact Mt. Bachelor directly to reserve a rental.
What can you teach me?
Our coaches have lots of experience with all skill levels: beginners and intermediate riders really learn a lot from our skills lessons and tours. For more advanced riders, our instructors ensure your fundamentals are solid, then move into more advanced skills like drops and jumps, and maneuvers on technical terrain like rock gardens and higher speed corners.
I would like more than a one-day clinic
For locals, we recommend our Progression Sessions and Signature Series for multi-week clinics. Additionally, we can schedule multiple private lessons or full day tours with a guide or skills instructor to enhance your riding abilities.
