Kootenay Mountain Biking will take your biking to the next level. Whether you're getting on your bike for the first time in years or entering your first race, we have programs for everyone.
Our programs combine a controlled, safe environment to get your skills dialled in, and a shuttle service that will get you to the top of the trail with all your energy to focus on the downhill with your coach. Unless of course that is what you are looking for. Coaching for uphill as well as the downhill!
From Day Clinics and Weekend Camps to Weekly Ride Series, you will find a program that fits your goals for this riding season. We offer programs for those 4 years old to 80 years old! As well as recreational riding to World Cup racing.
All our coaches are fully certified mountain bike coaches and first aid attendants. We are an insured business that is committed to providing the highest level of safety and coaching to our participants.

He is a qualified mountain bike coach, snowboard instructor and coach. His disability doesn't slow him down.
