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.

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.

Women's & Co-ed Social Rides are held throughout the summer. Sign up and join other mountain bikers for a casual trail ride. 

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. Contact Ridetheory for waitlist for sold out camps!
