From Yelp

“I hugely enjoyed my four-hour “Lifts” Clinic with Dave Robinson of The Ride Guides. I’m not a natural athlete on a mountain bike, but that didn’t seem to matter to Dave.

His show of certainty about my abilities–and his joy of teaching, had this 73 year old guy bouncing around a field, lifting wheels, and feeling just thrilled that I could have some fun on this clumbering machine with big wheels.

I saw that he seemed to find out who each of us were, and then he did this Yoda-thing for her, for him, and for me. This was a day so well spent. Thanks, Dave.”

Our group clinics are finished for the 2019 season but we’d be happy to schedule a private session at your convenience. We can lead you through a standard skills progression or focus on specific techniques that you may want to develop.

We can schedule a private clinic for your group to elevate your entire crew’s game. And talk about team building, why not get your work mates out for a day on the trail!
