Mountain Bike Skills Instruction

Whether you are just getting started or you want to take your riding to the next level, mountain bike skills instruction can benefit any rider. Our BICP Level III advanced instructor will break down each skill into manageable pieces, then teach you how to put them all together while providing valuable feedback. Lessons are typically taught in our local park, starting with learning skills in a grassy field and then practicing on singletrack. We offer private or group lessons, and each clinic is tailored to fit the individual or group needs. Some key skills that we cover include:


About the Instructor

Kelly Hazlegrove fell in love with mountain biking in 2006 and was immediately drawn to developing her bike handling skills and tackling technical terrain. Soon thereafter she began sharing her love of riding with others by co-founding her local mountain bike club, becoming a BICP certified skills instructor in 2014, and by founding and coaching her local NICA team. She has dabbled in XC, endurance, downhill, and enduro racing but mostly loves going out for a rip with friends and witnessing the excitement of a student conquering a new skill or tackling a new trail feature.
