Learning through videos that you can go back and refer to is far superior in my eyes to taking a skills clinic that once over is left to memory. Ryan is an excellent teacher, not all that can do, can teach but he highly skilled in both areas!
A wide variety of detailed exercises. Frequently updates. Quick response to answers. In summary: just about everything! And now we’re getting new tutorials on manuals and bunnyhops – brilliant! And I like the bikepart mixed with mental and physical training/thinking.
Ryan Leech’s lessons teach valuable skills in a clear, manageable, effective progression. Each course has a progression, but there is also a great progression from course to course. His teaching style is very supportive and positive.
We're ready to answer your questions and critique your practice videos! Below every lesson is a comment area – leave your questions or video link and we'll respond! There is also private facebook group with riders from around the globe that love to support each other, it's a wonderful and safe community for all levels.
Purchasing a membership gives you immediate access to the entire library of skills courses. You can stream the lessons from any device. When you finish a lesson can mark it as complete to keep track of your progress.
Manuals and Bunny hops require both technique & strength, and just like any training program they take time to develop - that's why I've designed this course progressively with graduation goals for each lesson. Physically you may experience sore muscles and joints that need to be honoured with rest – our physical therapist has written guidelines inside the course that will help you monitor this. There is also physical risk as further explained in the safety section. Mentally, you may face frustration which is why I address mental fitness skills such as visualization throughout the program.
Wheelies are performed seated while pedalling. Manuals are performed standing with no pedalling. Both area radically enjoyable to perform ;-)
Videos submitted for coach critique - are you willing to invest the time to learn this valuable mountain biking skill like these students? If so we'd love to help!
