Do you want mountain biking lessons designed around your current skills and longer-term goals?
We tailor our private and semi-private sessions around you!
Once you reserve your lesson(s), a member of the Alaska Trail Guides team will reach out and discuss what you would like to work on.
We use this information to build a bespoke plan solely for you.
With private mountain bike lessons, you will gain confidence, build strength, and solidify your existing foundation.
With a lesson package, we can structure a custom schedule of progressive sessions.
This consistency and frequency ensures you develop new skills at a steady rate, and all while reinforcing the proper techniques and good habits you learn.
Our private mountain biking lessons are the perfect opportunity to develop your riding skills safely while having fun and exploring the beauty of Alaska.
If you have any questions for us before booking your private lesson, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Our semi-private sessions are ideal for small groups of friends or family (two to six people) who have the same skill level.
Reserving a semi-private lesson allows your entire group to progress together in line with shared goals.
While we tailor sessions to your needs, we also keep your starting ability in mind.
To begin, your coach will teach you body position on the bike, braking, cornering, and line selection.
We then expand our scope as time allows.
Your coach will teach cornering at higher speeds and on berms, dealing with obstacles uphill and downhill, and basic jumping.
Your coach will teach drops, jumps, an introduction to wheelies and manuals, and more challenging uphill and downhill obstacles.

We understand life can be unpredictable. If you are unable to make your scheduled lesson, please contact us as early as possible. Then we can work together to reschedule.
We suggest arriving 15 minutes before the start of your lesson, which gives you time to check in with us and get your bike and gear ready!
BIKES & EQUIPMENT:
You must bring a functioning mountain bike that fits you and is capable of riding on dirt singletrack trails. All participants are required to wear a helmet that is certified to the MIPS standard. Helmets are required any time on a bike. We don’t require but recommend that participants also wear protective sunglasses, bike-specific gloves, and possibly knee and/or elbow pads. A hydration pack is great for storing extra clothing, snacks, water, and necessary bike tools and/or other equipment.
A link to our online waiver will be emailed to you within 24 hours of your lesson. A completed and signed waiver is required to participate in a lesson with Alaska Trail Guides.
