Harrisonburg VA/ Shenandoah Valley
We teach primarily at these locations but do travel further for a fee!
We are located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley surrounded by riding opportunities for all levels of riders. TakeAim Cycling moved here because of the diversity of trails to ride and teach on. We currently are teaching at Bryce Bike Park and on the trails of the Massanutten Western Slopes.
We encourage riders looking for instruction to make a trip down for a combination of instruction and riding. We can provide recommendations for places to ride, eat, and sleep.
Below you will find our favorite places to instruct. We charge $60hr for any travel beyond 1hr from Harrisonburg VA. Email us for special rates. firstname.lastname@example.org
Bryce Bike Park: Great corners, Jumps, and Drops for Progressing.
We are the official providers of instruction at Bryce Bike Park. You will find us here five days a week May through thanksgiving. Bryce is an excellent place for cross country to downhill riders. You don't need to be an extreme mountain biker to have fun and learn foundations here. If you do happen to be an advanced rider, we can help you as well! Our instructors are certified to work with the most advanced riders.
Massanutten Western Slopes: Rocks, Descending, Climbing, Techy Corners
If you want to improve your rock riding, line choice, long climbs, and big descents, then come here to get a taste of the efforts of the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition. The Western Slopes are built by SVBC and is the home of the Hoo-Ha XC and Enduro races. Twenty minutes out of town, these trails are easy to access and fun.
You need to get a $10 day pass each time you ride here or buy a season pass for $50. All the money goes back to the club for building and maintaining more trail. http://svbcoalition.org/our-riding/mountain-biking/massanutten/
This is a favorite place for instructing on rocks and working on those technical skills for backcountry and enduro style riding. No matter the level of skills, there is something here for everyone.
