Lessons are designed around your skills and goals! Once you reserve your lesson(s) a coach will reach out to you to discuss what you would like to work on, then build a plan tailored to you. With private mountain biking lesson(s) you will gain confidence, build strength, and solidify your foundation.
A lesson package will allow your coach to design a custom schedule of progressive sessions. Developing your skills and reinforcing proper technique and good habits. We aim to have our riders progress safely while having fun and exploring the beauty of the surrounding area.
Semi-private: if you have a small group of friends or family members (2-6), all around the same skill level you can reserve a semi-private lesson(s) based on the goals of the group.
Beginner: your coach will teach you body position on the bike, braking, cornering, and line selection to begin, more as time allows.
Intermediate: your coach will teach cornering at higher speeds and cornering on berms, dealing with obstacles uphill and downhill, and basic jumping.
Advanced intermediate: your coach will teach drops, jumps, 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.
