Instructors

 

Every instructor from our team is either PMBIA, Terra Method or ICP certified, which means they’ve been trained to teach and are held to the highest educational standards in the MTB industry. Sure there are plenty of great riders out there but can they pass on this knowledge to you?! All of our coaches live here in Sedona and are capable of guiding you on much more than just the trails. Having this local knowledge is crucial to building successful lesson plans and for our client’s learning progression. So come check us out! We have free group rides happening all the time, clinic opportunities, social events and much more. We would love to meet you and show you why Sedona is the place we choose to call home.
