Learning to ride drops

Individual & Group Lessons

Custom skills lessons and athlete development 

Cross Country, Enduro, Downhill, Gravel

​From beginner to pro riders, our lessons put you in the driver's seat.

You choose the subject, and we work towards your goals. 

Every session starts with a conversation about your riding history, equipment and what you want to achieve. We'll learn about you as a rider and tailor the lesson to your unique needs. 

Schedule a lesson today and start achieving your riding goals!

We offer lessons mainly in three different environments to meet riders goals.

  • Bryce Bike Park is an ideal environment for beginners to pros who want to take the pedaling out of their lessons and focus on jumps, drops and cornering. We'll help you go big or small and demystify the bike park.  

  • Massanutten Western Slopes are excellent for beginner to expert riders who want everything from flow trails to technical terrain.  

  • George Washington National Forest is the place for a backcountry experience where the climbs and descents get steep and the trail is less predictable. 

  • Custom locations upon request

All our coaches are Professional Mountain Bike Instructor Association (PMBIA) certified, which means they have the credentials to provide high quality, professional instruction. We also prioritize the PMBIA safe group sizes and maintain teacher/student ratios of 1:5. Groups larger than 5 or interested in locations outside our normal range, please contact us to discuss options. 

***During the summer (May-Nov), most instruction is offered at Bryce Bike Park. We offer instruction at Massanutten Western Slopes on Wednesdays. ***

***TakeAim Cycling is committed to good partnerships in land stewardship and gives back a portion of proceeds to every organization that manages the lands we teach on.***
