Mountain Bike Skills Coaching in the Southeast

I have provided mountain bike skills instruction over the years on some pretty incredible trail systems across numerous states, and Alabama is hard to beat.

Most of my camps and private lessons are held at Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, Alabama, which is south of Birmingham.  The trails at Oak Mountain handle moisture so much better than many trail systems, should the weather turn unfavorable.  Oak Mountain can be ridden year around.  What is more, Oak is an International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) Hall of Fame Epic Trail System.  Many of my customers have traveled to Oak Mountain for a skills camp and then stayed on extra day(s) to continue to explore these awesome trails and/or the fun trails at Coldwater, which is an IMBA bronze level ride center and is little over an hour away from Oak.  Plus, when it comes to private lessons, terrain at Oak can be found that is perfect for everyone from beginner to pro level riders.  Directions to Oak Mountain  For a video highlighting some of the trails at Oak Mountain, Coldwater, and Chewalca, go here (Oak Mtn highlighted at 7:45)  

While "Squamish-ish" is a double-black feature that won't be ridden in the "Ground Control 1" camp at Oak Mountain State Park, the basic skills taught in that one-day camp are the only ones being used to conquer it.  Never underestimate executing the basics correctly.
