Beth was a great biking coach! She obviously had a lot of experience that she was very happy to share. It made me aware of some riding deficiencies I was totally unaware of. She videoed us and then showed us live what we were doing and we’d try it again. It was worth it, me and my friend will probably take additional classes. Highly recommended. And Sylvi the owner went out of her way to accommodate us when our plans had to change. Highly recommend !

Great kids coaching!! Morgan & Kim are awesome!!

Had a great one on one workshop with Kim of Momentum and I can’t believe what a difference it made. From her overview of the bicycle, which she even helped me rent and delivered to our location, to the drills and actual ride, she was everything you could ask for in a coach. She is thorough, encouraging, and has such awesome energy. You won’t regret any workshop you take with her and I hope to do another session with her soon!

My recent mountain biking adventure in Moab was an absolute dream come true, all thanks to Coach Jonathan, event organizer Silivi, and the amazing group of riders.Coach Jonathan's expertise and passion for mountain biking elevated our experience. He ensured we felt safe, pushed our limits, and improved our skills. His guidance was invaluable.Sylvi's meticulous event planning made the trip stress-free. From transportation to delicious meals, she left no detail unattended.Moab's trails are a biker's paradise, and with this incredible team and the amazing group of riders, it's an experience of a lifetime. Five stars and a heartfelt thank you to Coach Jonathan, Sylvi, and the fantastic riders for making it unforgettable!

Our group just left Sylvi and the Momentum crew to return home. Hard to leave them behind. The 4 day trip was executed to perfection from the moment we arrived to minutes ago (at the end). Each of our skills needs were met with excellent instruction. We had an absolute hoot also-so much fun, and new friendships.

Amazing mountain biking trip with Sylvi and Jonathan. So professional, attentive and nurturing. You won’t find better people to guide you.

Amazing retreat and wonderful coaches!

I had an absolutely wonderful time at the women's mountain bike retreat hosted by Momentum Mountain Biking. I walked away from the weekend with enhanced foundational skills, a more advanced skill set to tackle technical riding, judgement free coaching, and great connections with women who empower each other. 10/10 would recommend this experience to all levels of women mountain bikers.

Had awesome retreat with this crew!!! Loved every second and am a totally different rider now!!!

Fantastic People

Dave was the perfect guide and instructor for our half day ride at Lunch Loops in Grand Junction. He has a great sense of humor, pushed our skills, and led us at just the right pace. After the ride he went out of his way to also give us recommendations for meals and other non-guided rides during our trip. I will be back and hope to book Dave again.

Excellent professional mountain bike adventures to be had with Momentum Mountain Biking. I attended the women's Shredly weekend clinic and was treated to beautiful rides with excellent instructors. Everything was well organized and super duper fun. I left the weekend having fallen in love with mountain biking again.
1686686102
Had a great lesson with Julie. She was able to teach me all of the basics and I was able to get a huge boost in confidence in riding trails around Moab. Highly recommend picking up a lesson from Momentum on your first day down to get familiar with mountain biking
1686530391
Coaching from Sylvie was great! Attention to detail, reinfored cocepts a numbe of times. Great with positive feedback. Fun to be with. Would use her again!
1686516826
Momentum Mountain Biking is a world class organization. They are extremely organized. Provide excellent coaching and always has the customer in mind. The rides they choose are spot on the skills I wanted to work on. Communication is awesome. I always knew where I needed to be and when. I would recommend anyone beginner to expert sign up for a lesson or clinic with Momentum!
1686425606
The Momentum MTB experience was top shelf! They had world-class coaches, amazing food, and I left a better mountain biker and a better person💗 Thank you!

At the end of our fabulous vacation in fruita my husband said "The best thing we did was schedule you that half day private lesson the first morning!" You know it was helpful when the guy you've been riding with for over 10 years comments on how much improvement he saw. Momentum made it easy to schedule the lesson and fill out the questionnaire, and then set up the perfect coach, terrain, and focus for me. My coach Tina was so fun and helpful. She had read my self assessment and goals ahead of time and quickly assessed my skill and mindset in person. She knew just when to encourage and challenge me, and just when I needed a break. She was highly skilled in both verbally and physically teaching mountain biking and knew the trails like the back of her hand. My biking improved a ton and I had more fun challenging myself while we were in Fruita. My husband said his time waiting for me was cut in half! On my end that felt like I had the confidence and new approaches to trying features that I would have walked or been hesitant on in the past. Now that I'm home I've gone on a couple rides and I'm able to easily clear so many more sections of trail that I was 50/50 on before, I see so many more lines as options, and I've tried more obstacles that before didn't make any sense to me. I can't say enough good things about Momentum Mountain Biking!
1685027373
Excellent instruction, great day and great improvement on my riding skills! Look forward to additional learning in the future.
1684979831
Exactly the experience I was seeking! I took a half-day guided tour. Momentum's pre-ride questionnaire was easy to fill out, and asked all the right questions to match me with the length and amount of challenge to make the ride epically fun and memorable for my first ride at Moab!
1682888501
Jonathan Atwell was a great coach and we had a great time.
1681488113
We had the best experience taking our high school group to mountain bike in Moab with Momentum Mountain Biking. Sylvie and the crew helped us gain new skills and confidence on the trails. They picked the perfect trails for us to ride with our newly acquired skills and taught us all about the geology and ecology as we went along. All of the guides were top notch and medically trained to deal with anything that may happen out in the trails. It was the best experience of our trip!
1680530958
Had an awesome day of riding advanced trail. My skills definitely improved and by the end of the day I was feeling much more confident on making hard moves!
1679965257
Had an amazing 3 day 1:1 Mtn bike skills clinic with Coach Kim! Very helpful with taking my mtn bike skills to the next level! Kim communicated and demonstrated multiple key points to mtb basics that allowed me to grow and enjoy riding my mtb.
1679801601
Instructor Jeff Lefebve Felt he was very good. Explained and demonstrated techniques numerous times, positive constructive criticism, and provided lots of praise and patience.
1672098661
I was lucky enough to attend a women's mountain biking retreat hosted by Momentum & Shredly in Park City, Utah and it was phenomenal. The coaches were all superb and helped my mtb skills grow exponentially in just a few days! My goal was to get wheels off the ground for jumping, which happened for me (woohoo!), and SO MUCH MORE. We got amazing drops and jumps and technical uphill riding instruction, and all of the basics were reviewed for good measure as well. A whole ton of fun and learning. Your riding will improve. Highly recommended!
1666821001
Great experience!
1666474369
Took a half-day private lesson with Jeff. He is amazing! I learned a ton about my bike, how to ride over rocks and turn on gravel, and how to up my game on the trial. Really worth it!
1666222107
Momentum Mountain Biking was an awesome experience! Before coming to Moab, the team was very responsive on FB messenger, helping me understand how many lessons was right for me and how much travel I should get on my rental!The lessons themselves were great and my instructor, Jeff, was fantastic. I did two full-day lessons back to back and have absolutely zero regrets. Jeff was easy to communicate with and logistics were seamless. When it came to actually instructing, Jeff was both extremely supportive, helping me celebrate my wins, but also great at providing tactical tips (he would routinely try new strategies with me, build things back down and back up, until we would find something that clicked). I made amazing progress over the two lessons and couldn't be happier with the experience.
1664918613
Jonathan determined my skill level immediately and provided excellent instruction to help me level up. Awesome day!
1663711503
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!
1663209497
I booked a private lesson to learn basic techniques of mountain biking, and to feel comfortable with rocks and a bit more speed/control. I received all of this and more. Sylvi was an excellent instructor and was very attentive. She gave me the confidence I needed to achieve my goals for the day. I rode away with new “tools” in my bag and the excitement to use them.
1660775489
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!

1657564852
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
1655755468
Virginia was excellent, patient and most of all used her experience to help me progress on the drops from my previous skill set.
1653584847
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!
1651256361
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!
1651185904
We had an top notch experience, all the way from the booking process, through a few changes we needed to make to our plans, and ending with a five star private group lesson with Jeff. Each person we interacted with provided incredible customer service and the skills we learned during the coaching session has given us great techniques to progress our riding. If you are venturing to the Moab or Fruita area I would highly recommended planning time in your trip to take a course with Momentum Mountain Biking, you won’t regret it!
1650422823
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!
1649127038
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.
1649042373
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.
1648850274
Great experience. Basics and confidence building made easy. Thank you
1648596846
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.
1647369845
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!
1642382418
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.
