HEARD ON THE TRAIL

Such a wonderful weekend! It was very organized and the instructors were spot on. I worked with Wendy who has the rare and uncanny ability to translate verbal descriptions of skills into practical application on the bike-both in the park and on the trail. She was able watch each of us work on a move and then individually dissect our technique to give specific feedback to each of us nearly each time. Add that she was friendly, approachable, funny and insanely talented on a bike, you've got the best course I could ever hope for. Sylvie was also wonderful and helpful in getting us organized. I also thoroughly enjoyed the other women I got to ride with. I would recommend this class for any skill level and will be back for more.Thank you, MMBI!!
I've been riding in Moab for a few years now, and I was impressed by how much solid stuff I took home after my first day. This will improve my riding for years to come. I can't wait for my second day of class.
Wendy was an excellent teacher and we all learned a lot new things. I've been riding singletrack for over 20 years, but there are many basic things (related to bike balance, shifting weight, etc) that I have to improve on. We were going to split our class between the bike park and singletrack, but we had so much fun we just stuck to the park. Our 9 y/o learned a ton as well, and is already jumping well.
Morgan is the best, i highly recommend this class!
Awesome experience. It was great to learn new skills and put them immediately into practice. I am a beginner and it was definitely worth to take a lesson - I felt comfortable and safe throughout the ride and had so much fun. Sylvi has a great personality and is very knowledgeable about biking. Thank you Momentum Biking for the wonderful time!
My husband and I had an awesome lesson with Shelly! We focused on fundamental skills and built confidence throughout the lesson. Shelly was great at giving instructions in a way that was approachable to us - e.g. by relating certain body positions on the bike to skiing. Scheduling a lesson was very easy. I would love to take another lesson with Momentum!
A great intro lesson to get some of the basics and top things to work on to improve skill level! Sylvi was wonderful and I very much enjoyed the lesson
Virginia was excellent, patient and most of all used her experience to help me progress on the drops from my previous skill set.
My coach Beth was fantastic! She is very professional, direct and constructive with her feedback. Beth truly loves her job and takes coaching very seriously. You will come out of your training session at least a level or two more advance!
Great instructors and easy to work with. I had a lovely experience both with planning and on the trails with this rockin’ group of mountain bike enthusiasts!
This was such a great experience for me. Tina was super knowledgeable, engaged, and empowering! I had so much fun learning a ton of new tools. My riding greatly improved from this lesson! Thank you so much!
Julie was fantastic! She met where I was in terms of ability, pushed me to challenge myself, and gave me the tools to improve drastically. Thanks for an amazing lesson!
Keely is a terrific teacher. He’s thoughtful, knowledgeable and a good communicator. He showed me through example and by observing and critiquing my riding.
Excellent! Knowledgeable, skilled and was able to both demonstrate, critique and support critical riding techniques in a fun and professional manner. Looking forward to my next lesson with Sylvi and her talented team of instructors . I love this women owned and highly responsive approach to business.
I went in pretty nervous and feeling unsure if I was going to able to be comfortable mountain biking in Moab, or even progress through some of my (many) skill gaps. An absolute great time and really surprised myself.Our instructor Beth was a joy, gave us confidence when we needed it, but didn’t push us outside of our comfort zone.Thank you so much. I’ve never had instruction or guiding before, and we’ll be 100% doing it again.
Great experience. Basics and confidence building made easy. Thank you
Hola! What an awesome time. We booked weeks in advance knowing the weather would be spectacular.Haha! Two days before snow and rain came into the forecast. We were offered the option of changing days but that wasn't available to us so we stayed with the original plan.Beth and Jonathan took us out on a cold, wet miserable day. Both my friend and I were dialing in new tweaks to our bikes and these conditions made us think carefully about our choices.As we made our way down the LPS we saw the drops and chunder Moabis famous for. After a short period we separated and one of us went with Jonathan while the other went with Beth.We both learned so much from the experience and are more capable and confident riders now. If you want to learn more about what Moab has to offer and dial in your skills...seek out Momentum - they'll have you covered.
This experience was amazing! I have been mountain biking but never had a formal lesson. Beth and Sylvi rocked it. Not only was the day super enjoyable I am a much more confident rider now. We worked on specific elements (small drops, right turns, technical rocky climbs, and braking skills) at my request. Don’t delay, book them!
I’ve had the good fortune of doing three clinics with Momentum Mountain Biking and I can honestly say it has completely changed my riding. Having raced mountain bikes in the Sydney Olympics, won the World Championships and the World Cup Overall, I considered myself a pretty good rider. But after my time with MMB, I now ride things like a downhiller; faster, more aggressive, and smoother than I ever did even at the height of my racing career. They have a great teaching style, are easy to understand, and offer encouragement and positive feedback that brings you to a new level of technical riding. I can’t wait to do it again!
Reid surprised us. We didn’t expect all of the tips and tricks. He was knowledgeable about the area and professional throughout. I would definitely schedule a ride with him in the future.
Julie was amazing! I learned so much and she taught me things I thought would be impossible for me to do. I feel so much more confident and can’t wait to try some more difficult trails.
MMBI was a great experience. I learned a lot in the two hours and was able to go out and ride trails that I would have been too intimidated to ride before. I would sign up again and would refer friends to do it too. Thanks for your instruction!
Before coming to Moab, I had done some guided mountain bike tours of places I'd traveled, but felt that even with more days in the saddle, my riding was not improving as quickly as I would like. I came to understand that a mountain bike "guide" is not the same thing as a mountain bike "instructor," and that in order to get better, I needed to work with someone who knows how to teach mountain biking. So I got in touch with Moab Mountain Bike Instruction to set up multiple day lessons, and could not have been more pleased with the experience.Sylvi, my instructor, was one of the best teachers I've ever had, in anything. She was punctual, enthusiastic and extremely dedicated to helping me gain the skills to become a better rider. She planned each of our sessions with care, and was able to improvise, pushing me slightly out of my comfort zone, or pulling back when I was tired or lacked confidence. I can't recommend her or Moab Mountain Bike Instruction more highly.
My group of four friends booked two days of instruction with Moab Mountain Bike Instruction and it was incredible. Our instructor, Beth, was awesome. Drills, feedback (including video and photo), and practice at the BMX track in the morning and then trail rides in the afternoon. I learned so much and and had a blast doing it. Would 100% recommend this company to anyone looking for a group lesson in Moab. Can't wait to come back next year for more!
I highly recommend doing mountain bike instruction with MMBI when you're in Moab no matter what level you are. I feel like I transformed the way I rode in just 4 hours. I feel so much more confident and now I am excited to go out and ride with my husband and his friends.
We had a TREMENDOUS experience coordinating a half-day instruction while we were in Moab on vacation. Sylvi was great in understanding both of our riders and tailoring a day suited to our abilities and desires. Jeff was an absolutely amazing instructor and really improved our abilities and confidence. We would definitely recommend Moab Mountain Bike Instruction!
Fantastic mountain bike lesson from Moab Mountain Bike Instruction (Julie was our coach). From the outset, Silvi was great in setting up the lesson. The questionnaire was one of the best at assessing our background and needs (we've had coaching from two other companies in other towns recently). And Julie was the best in coaching instruction. My wife and I had disparate needs. Julie focused on my wife as we'd requested and her down-to-earth manner, knowledge, and choice of trail perfectly fit my wife's needs, even as I learned a lot too. Great experience and highly recommend.
I had a lesson with Julie Cornelius and she's the BEST!! I've always wanted to try mountain biking but have been too intimidated. She took the time to teach me the basics, get me on the trail, encourage me and made it super fun. I had an absolute BLAST! I'd highly recommend MMTI and Julie:)
I was passing through Moab on a road trip and really wanted to mountain bike in the area but was not sure of where to go or if my skills were up for it. I was also interested in working on my technical skills and had never had any instruction before. A local bike shop recommended Moab Mountain Bike Instruction and it was exactly what I was looking for. I spent 4 hours working one on one with Sylvie. She tailored the session to what I needed and was able to help me take my confidence and skills to a new level. By the time we were done, I was riding the hardest, most technical singletrack I have ever done. I'm looking forward to taking on the harder trails back home that I have been avoiding until now. Fantastic experience!
Sylvi and Beth were excellent teachers! They know their stuff and we’re able to help me really advance my riding skills
Scott was nothing short of exceptional! Skilled, experienced and with superior communication skills. I learned a tremendous amount while he led me on Slickrock - a technically challenging trail. I’ll book Scott or another representative from MMBI in a heart beat when I return to Moab!
Fantastic Instruction!! I'm a novice mountain biker. Sylvi paired me up with Johanna for a 4 hour session. Given my novice level skills she recommended we meet at the bike park in Moab. That worked out perfectly as Johanna was able to give me great introductory information on body position, weight distribution, gearing, brakes and even bike setup. From there she helped me get more comfortable flowing through bumps and hills. Finally we spent a couple hours in the back learning how to handle dropoffs, balancing the bike, getting the front wheel up over obstacles and general bike handling skills. It was 4 hours that went by faster than I thought possible but I learned a bunch. I then went out and rode some novice trails and was able to use this newfound knowledge and do some things I'd not have been able to pull off as quickly without the excellent instruction from Johanna. I'll be back in the area a lot and I plan on visiting Moab Mountain Bike Instruction many more times. Great team, great instruction, good times!!
Great experience with our instructor Julie. She was patient and explained what we would be doing as well as the reasoning behind the instruction. She was patient with questions and gave detailed answers. She took us to excellent skill appropriate trails for us to practice on and have fun riding. I would not hesitate to recommend Moab Mountain Bike Instruction.
Great day. Our instructor really tailored everything appropriately to our group and got several nervous beginners very comfortable!
This was a wonderful experience. Sylvi did a great job of assessing our needs and addressing all issues. She had Jeff join her as a coach in training for our lession. He was knowlegable and very supportive. Together they evaluated our skill set and presented information in a supportive and fun context. Following our lession we felt much more comfortable on our rides in Moab and we highly recommend Moab Moutain Bike Instruction!
Ashley was a wonderful instructor. Her explanations and demonstrations were easily applied to the trail. She was also encouraging and built confidence. I would highly recommend this outfit for mountain bike instruction.
We felt that Reed and Beth did a great job. The skills sessions really helped to take our riding to the next level. Reed and Beth could really break down the skills and have us demonstrate them while they watched and critiqued. Just the basic neutral and ready position made such a difference. I was able to go over, climb and go down parts of the trails that I definitely would have walked before. If we had trouble with certain obstacles, Beth would work with us on sessioning those areas so that we could ride that portion. That feeling of confidence and control has helped so much and made mountain biking even more enjoyable. Thank you all so much for your help and patience. We can’t wait to get out on the trail and practice our new skills.
My brother and I took a 4 hour lesson the first day of our week long MTB trip to Moab. It was well worth the time and money. There's always something you can improve on your riding, and having an instructor help you is the best way to improve. Our instructor gave us multiple improvements that we were able to use all week and will make us better riders in general.
Spent the weekend with these guys, Ty was my instructor and he killed it. He gave me the skills, confidence and control I was lacking. Tried them out on one of my home trails and my ride buds couldn’t keep up. Already recommending you guys, it’s either that or find some new buds. Thanx Ty and MMTBI
Tyler was amazing! We learned more than we imagined we would. He quickly identified our weakness and needs. Then helped us understand how to improve our skills to be better riders. He also explained how to use our bikes efficiently and how we could improve our bike equipment to enhance our experience. Worth every dollar! Highly recommend!
Despite slimy weather, I had THE BEST time learning more mountain biking skills when my family and I were in Moab last month! My instructor was Tyler, and he was a fantastic instructor. I would recommend Moab Mountain Bike Instruction to anyone---from ease of online signup, to excellent communication with the owners/staff, to a really awesome lesson---can't wait to sign up again when we are back next year. (Someday the Whole Enchilada is my goal!)
Tyler did a great job was very detail oriented on everything from setting up my bike to turns and downhill maneuvers over rocks etc.
My wife and I signed up for mountain bike instruction to learn the basics of mountain biking (we are beginners), and had the pleasure of having Sylvi as our instructor. She is very attentive, approachable, supportive, and is literally one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Her lesson plan covered everything we needed and she progressed us as she deemed appropriate. She never held us back, or pushed us beyond what we were capable of doing.We spent the first day on skill development, which included things like, how to position your body for all different types of moves, how to corner, how to do a roll down, how to keep your eyes on where you want to go, stopping on an uphill and downhill, etc. One of the things she talked about right away, which was a pleasant surprise, was about having positive self-talk. This is something that can get overlooked when learning a new skill.We spent the second day out on the trail putting into practice the skills we learned the previous day. It was great to see and feel what we learned come together. Not only that, but since my wife and I are at different levels in our ability, Sylvi was able to seamlessly cater to each of our needs. She also never rushed us or made us feel like we were running out of time. And at the end of the session, she checked her lesson plan to make sure she covered everything that she had planned. Sylvi is by far the most professional, organized, and thorough instructor. We enjoyed every moment and would recommend Moab Mountain Bike Instruction to anyone!
I've been riding for over 25 years and learned a ton in 3 hours, 3 days would have been better!
I absolutely loved the 2 days I spent learning, and riding in beautiful Moab with Wendy and the other wonderful women in our group. Wendy provided great knowledge and encouragement! I can't wait to come back and ride more. Highly recommend!!
Fantastic experience. Photo is of Tyler demonstrating proper uphill riding technique.
my son and i had a great day with sylvi. we started the day looking at things and saying no way we could ride it. by the end we were riding stuff much more gnarly than that. thanks sylvi!
Awesome skills camp, loved it. So much technique and practice packed into a weekend.
It was fantastic. I learned a good amount of fundamental information to help make me a better mtn biker.
My experience with Moab Mountain Bike Instruction was awesome. My instructor focused on my chosen goals and helped me correct some bad habits which were causing me to be unstable during turns. If I hadn't paid for the instruction, I suspect it would have taken me numerous crashes before I figured out what I was doing wrong. I am looking forward to practicing my newly acquired skills. Thank you MMTBI!
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending my first (and certainly not last) Moab Mountain Biking Instruction 2-day weekend clinic. The clinic was a great way for my boyfriend and I to develop our skills as we just recently got into mountain biking. Wendy, Sylvi, and Erin were fantastic instructors offering plenty of helpful techniques, encouragement, and individualized attention. We started our days at the Moab Bike Park and worked on various skills and techniques, then a lovely catered lunch was provided to us at the city park close by, and finally we would go to various trails around Moab to practice the skills we learned. What a great experience! I'm happy to recommend Moab Mountain Biking Instruction to anyone interested in developing their skills and growing as a mountain biker.
