LLB skills clinics
Jump down to see experiences in each state:
Mountain biking is the best sport ever — and the better you get, the better it gets.
For the past 10 years we’ve coached thousands of riders like you to ride safer, ride more confidently, ride faster and have more fun.
Thanks to the LLB Teaching Method and our rigorous standards, LLB coaches are the most effective in the world.
We love the feedback and positive reviews from riders like you whose riding and lives have been transformed by the LLB teaching method
We’re riders too, though, and good is never good enough. So now we’re improving our effectiveness to deliver an even higher quality coaching experience.
Improve on your own — and with our help
At LLB we believe the greatest improvement comes from a combination of individual learning and practice and in-person time with a qualified instructor.
Lots of riders all over the world—beginners to pros—are reaching new levels of shred with LLBMTB. When you combine the online learning with an in-person clinic, your skills — and fun — will skyrocket.
For the first time ever, when you sign up for an in-person LLB experience, you’ll receive a subscription to the LLBMTB online mountain bike school.
This complete online learning resource covers all the topics we teach at an in-person clinic. (And more.)
That means you can study and practice skills and techniques before and after your in-person experience. This exposure and reinforcement enhances and accelerates your adaption of new improved riding habits and skills.
And as you work through the online lessons, you can post your questions and videos to our Facebook group, and get feedback from a LLB’s certified coaches and other motivated riders who are serious about improving their riding skills.
What you will learn
Using the unbeatable combination of online learning and an in-person skills clinic, you can expect to learn about:
- Efficient pedaling
- Going up and down obstacles safely and efficiently
- Pumping bumps
- Vision and the Sine Waves of Love
and, when you’re ready,
- and more goodness including FUN!
You’ll see immediate, tremendous improvement in your riding. As you master the fundamentals, it’s a smooth progression to more advanced skills like hopping, dropping, jumping and technical climbing. We build your foundation of great riding — and we show you how to progress as high as you want.
All of our lessons use the same cognitive structure, but each clinic is unique to the individual riders and the local terrain. Depending on the local trails, you can expect to explore rock gardens, drops, jumps and technical climbs/descents.
Be ready to be alert and active 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is a long, tiring and awesome day!
NOTE: Any coach who promises to teach you hopping, dropping, jumping or other advanced (and potentially dangerous) skills in a public class is dangerously ignorant or willfully dishonest. We will elevate your riding as much as possible, but we prioritize safety and fun.
