MTB Skills Instruction in Bend

Are you new to mountain biking, or want to learn new skills? Or are you a regular rider and ready to take it to the next level?

Cog Wild has professional mountain bike coaches to help you become a more confident, safer, and skilled rider. Everyone benefits from mastering the fundamentals, getting personalized feedback, and working with the coaches to enhance your skills!

Private Skills Lesson

Our PMBI certified skills coaches are available for you, your family or small group for full or half day lessons. For riders of all abilities.

Progression Sessions

Group skills progressions over several weeks make learning fun.

Jumping for Oldies

For the experienced rider, age 30+, who didn’t get around to hitting jumps when youth was on their side.

Mt. Bachelor Bike Park Lessons

For experienced riders, our PMBI certified skills coaches are available for you or your small group to work on advanced skills at the bike park.

Junior & Youth

Check out Cascadia Junior Cycling for junior-specific summer camps, mountain bike clubs & race teams.


Can I use my own bike?

Yes! Your own mountain bike is best because you are used to it, but we also 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 one-day clinic

For locals, we recommend our Progression Sessions and Signature Series for multi-week clinics, otherwise we can schedule multiple private lessons or full day tours with a guide or skills instructor to enhance your riding abilities.
