Darryl, H

My brother and I took a 4 hour lesson the first day of our week long MTB trip to Moab. It was well worth the time and money. There's always something you can improve on your riding, and having an instructor help you is the best way to improve. Our instructor gave us multiple improvements that we were able to use all week and will make us better riders in general.

Kristen, B

Drills, feedback (including video and photo), and practice at the BMX track in the morning and then trail rides in the afternoon. I learned so much and and had a blast doing it. Would 100% recommend this company to anyone looking for a lesson in Moab. Can't wait to come back next year for more!

Frequently asked questions

Do I provide the bike and helmet?

Yes, each participant is responsible for arriving with a bike suitable for our trails as well as a helmet.

Where do these lessons take place?

Our private lessons are 100% custom and tailored to you and your skillset. Based on your questionaire, the option you choose (2-hour, half-day or full-day) and our knowledge of local trails, we will coordinate to determine what works best. If you are choosing Off-trail skills n' drills, we usually utilize the awesome Moab Bike Park conveniently located off of 500 West, just a couple blocks from main street.

Do I tip my instructor?

Though not required, tipping is customary and is greatly appreciated. Our instructors accept cash or Venmo. You can also add a gratuity to your lesson total if you prefer.

Can I bring a friend(s)?

Yes! Every private lesson option can accomodate up to 6 participants. See our options above for add-on per person pricing.

What if it rains?

We ask that our participants arrive for any scheduled private lesson to be prepared for any conditions: From hot and sunny (packed the sunscreen and plenty of water!) to cold and raining (pack that rain jacket too!) We will try to ride no matter the weather conditions.

How do I meet my instructor?

The MMTBI instructor will meet you at the previously agreed upon lesson location. Please plan on having your own transportation for yourself and your bike. If you need help arranging your own transportation, use this link to see companies who offer trailhead shuttle service.

What is the cancellation policy?

Cancellations more than one week prior to the date of instruction will receive a full refund, less a $25 fee. Cancellations up to three days prior to the date of instruction will receive a 50% refund. Cancellations within 48 hours of the instruction are non-refundable. Seeking 3rd party trip insurance may be worth considering if you think your travel plans may change unexpectedly.

What is "detection and correction training?"

Detection and correction training is a process of a coach describing and demonstrating a skill, followed by student practice. Our instructors watch and provide feedback, often a tiny correction that can make all the difference.
