"I’m nearly overwhelmed with the value and quality of the coaching feedback I’ve been receiving. Your team has mastered the art of telling me where I’m getting it wrong while making me feel like a champion at the same time. The feedback has been laser focused with specific actions to address my shortcomings. My biggest regret is not jumping into the RLC learning community sooner. No worries, I’m on it now and am super pumped about what this year is going to bring on the trails for me!"
"I am gobsmacked by your extensive, patient and detailed comment! And it is really helpful and meaningful. I will increase tire pressure and see how that changes the takeoff feeling. I have been slowing down the rebound already but now will try turning pro-pedal on my old RP-23 shock to take it even further. Again, thanks heaps!"
"I’ve been a subscriber for over 2 years and am so pleased I discovered RLC. It’s an extraordinary resource and I’ve found it a revelation to my riding. The layout of the platform is effective and intelligent and impressively holistic. I’ve never used the feedback and personal coaching element however I plan to in the future when I have more time available.
Thanks for all the great work. I’ve recommended RLC to many of my friends and I actually feel some grief for all the people who ride mountain bikes but who don’t enjoy it as much as they could, or as safely, by not taking advantage of RLC."
"You have elevated my riding dramatically. To put this in some perspective. The first trail I tried when I moved to Colorado some years ago was Dakota Ridge. This is perhaps one of the most technical trails in Colorado.
Where I once hiked a bike 90% of the time, I am now riding 95% of this trail. Your lessons have helped tremendously. I spent most of the last winter in Moab riding lots of technical terrain. It has been through your lessons that I was able to clean what I see many others hike."
Detailed video progressions show you everything you need to know. Our team of professional mountain bike coaches and ambassadors are standing by to provide personalized feedback and encouragement. Or share your challenges and successes with our member-only Facebook group for crowd-sourced feedback and inspiration.

Creating results for riders, from beginner to pro, since 2013
"I’ve been working on manuals this summer with your lessons and it’s truly had an amazing effect on my riding. Just finished up a trip to Moab & Fruita this week & the results paid off in spades. I actually looked forward to rock drops and landed them successfully, was clearing gap jumps and even manualed over my first crack / dip today. Thank you sooooo much for all the time & energy you’ve put into this endeavour of teaching us how to be better riders.
"Hey Guys, first of all - thanks for the best mountain biking online platform out there. It is on a complete different level than the normal Youtube videos you find out there. I just became a certified MTB instructor by the German Alpine Club and I can see how a lot of educational tricks we apply are embedded in the practise sessions from the videos. Great Stuff."

"It was really fun being guided by Ryan for the wheelie challenge. He is so calm & thorough with his teaching style, I really enjoyed all the daily lessons and made a lot of progress even with my skill sets as a pro. I practiced every day, learned a lot, & went from a few pedal strokes to about 30 pedal strokes under control. Anywhere I go now, I’m wheeling thanks to Ryan."
Can I try a course for FREE? Sign up for a free 7-day trial for an all-access pass. Or try a course for free to experience what online skills coaching is all about!
Can I purchase just one course? Yes! Visit the Store page to explore all the courses we offer. However RLC is designed as an interactive and integrated system. For example, if a member gets stuck, our coaches may recommend drills from a variety of courses. Most riders tend to work on a few courses simultaneously to round out their practice sessions.
What level of skill is required? All courses progress riders from a beginner level through to advanced level challenges - so all levels all good!
How do I get feedback? Accurate feedback is our mission. Post a video or ask a question, it's that simple. Ryan is active answering questions, as are our coaches, ambassadors and members.
There are hundreds of lessons, how do I keep track? Course completion is tracked via progress bars and the site even remembers where in each video you are (and resumes from that point), no matter what device you are using.
Is there a membership contract? No contract or minimum - join by paying monthly or save by paying yearly. We also provide a 30-day money back guarantee. And there are no distracting advertisements anywhere on the site.
Our motto! All the curriculums and content is designed by leveraging this integrative perspective for adult learning.
Every trail is unique and each demands a unique combination of skills. Trails are why we mountain bike, they connect us to challenge, nature, and experience. Improving your skills will allow you to ride the trail as the builder intended, without skipping the fun bits.
Progressions that slowly build in difficulty are used to establish correct bike-body movement patterns. Our bodies, just like our bikes, also need maintenance, so the site offers 50+ yoga and therapeutic movement routines for when you need a tune up.
A crucial yet under-appreciated aspect of adult learning is how we use (or don’t use) our mind. We build this into each and every course and provide mental fitness practices to boost your performance so you can be your best.
Find flow by intentionally engaging in practice drills and theory. Eventually the mental effort of learning drops away and you'll find yourself in the zone. It's a mysterious state, and one we discuss frequently at RLC. Our courses will help get you there.
