The truth about MTB skills training is that it takes a lot of practice. That's why I developed Ryan Leech Connection. Online MTB Skills training encourages long-term development and gives you access to detailed tutorials and coaching year round.
We have over 600 video tutorials covering all of the most important MTB skills and a team of coaches ready to help you - 24/7.
Improve speed & confidence
The elusive bunnyhop mastered
Step by step towards rear wheel bliss
Clear intermediate tabletops
Slow speed balance skills
Ride steep, tight corners with style
MTB focused sessions
Conquer fears, find flow
Technical climbing, logs & ledges...
The reason we have so many video tutorials is because Ryan breaks down complex movements into bite sized progressions and offers drills for each step.
We also have a team of professional coaches and ambassadors that will answer your questions, or anayze your submitted videos within 24-48 hours!
Here's how it works:
Although he would never call himself that, Ryan is a legend.
During his 20-year pro riding career, Ryan Leech performed thousands of stunt shows around the world, including Cirque du Soleil, IMBA World Summit and Crankworx.
Ryan has appeared in dozens of MTB films, including The Collective and the Kranked series and is credited with progressing the sport of trials into a new era. In the photo opposite (that's Ryan on the left), he performs his final trials stunt show with two other legends of the sport, Hans "No Way" Rey and YouTube sensation, Danny MacAskill.
He has been coaching mountain bikers for the past 24 years and is an avid explorer of human potential, a yoga instructor and Integral Master Coach™.
Mike from Arizona was battling to not go over the bars.
After 6 months with RLC he is confidently riding double black diamonds.
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."
"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."
"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."
Becoming a skillful rider requires A LOT of practice. It doesn't happen overnight.
If you're trying to improve your bunny hop, cornering abilities or manuals, you need to break down the skill and deliberately practice all of the components in order to truly master it.
Our courses are designed to help you do just that. We create thoughtful and detailed progressions that help you start where you are and make real progress.
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.
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.
