Cost and Format for Ray's MTB Park Lesson

These lessons will be tailored to your needs and interests from position and balance to riding skinnies, safely bailing from obstacles, riding the pumptrack, hill climbing,'s endless! I recommend one to two hour lessons at Ray's.

The cost is $40.00/ hr for one on one lessons and $50.00 an hour person for groups of 2-6.

DH Lessons

Availability depends on location.  $45/hr for one person, $55/hr for groups. Please inquire if interested. I will tailor the lesson to your interests!

Format for lessons

Suggested lesson time for newcomers is 2-4 hrs for XC, 1-2 hrs for Ray's. 3 hrs goes by very quickly with 2 students! I spend a little time looking over your bike and making fitting suggestions, then we review techniques, positions and skills based on your level and interest. These skill drills take place on open areas. Last but not least, we get out on the trail a little to put the new skills into use.

Typical lesson venues include Dillon State Park MTB Trails and McGraw Park MTB Trail.
