Ridetheory offers diverse instruction and coaching for all ages, skill levels and disciplines.

From introductory lessons to competition development programs, Ridetheory puts the emphasis on having fun because that’s what builds passion, community, and long-term commitment. The dedicated team is here to help you take your riding to the next level.


Guided Mountain Bike Tours

Whether you’re looking for some flow or tech, Fernie has it all. Open up the Fernie Trail Map and you may feel overwhelmed by the scale of the network bike trails spidering out around town. You can fully maximize your time in Fernie by booking a guided tour and get the chance to stop at iconic Fernie viewpoints, enjoy some nature interpretation, and experience high-quality singletrack.


Mountain Bike Coaching

There’s something freeing about that feeling of conquering a rough technical trail, or releasing the weight of the world through a corner, that excitement as soon as your two wheels leave the ground, or just that pure joy from coasting in the wide open. This passion is what Ridetheory is driven to share with everyone through inclusive and progressive mountain bike programs.

Youth Program

Ridetheory offers weekly club youth sessions and enduro-specific training designed to encourage progression and nurture passion in youth. Learning amongst new and old friends, kids will build confidence, inspire each other, learn the meaning of dedication and commitment, and be a team player – skills that can all be transferred into their daily lives. 

Kids Mountain Bike Camps

Several kids camps are available throughout the summer. These 5-day camps are designed to prepare our youth for trail riding for years to come. Basic mountain bike skills and experience are required to attend.

  • July 5-9 (ages 9-13)
  • July 19-23  (ages 6-8)
  • August 16-20 (ages 6-8)
  • August 30 - September 3 (ages 9-13)

Women-Only Mountain Biking Courses

Take a Women-only course and experience the camaraderie that is only present when you’re amongst a group of other women in a traditionally male-dominated sport. Ridetheory has found that progression is accelerated in these environments and nurture that development to help you get the most out of your riding.

Adult Co-ed Mountain Biking Courses

The skills learned in these single-day Adult Co-ed Courses sessions will help improve your riding game and provide you with new riding tools to bring to the trails and jumps.

Private Mountain Bike Coaching

Whether it’s your first time on a mountain bike and you’re nervous as heck, or those 360 barspins on the dirt jumper just aren’t clicking, Ridetheory can provide you with the tools to ride towards your goals on a private coaching session.
