Instruction FAQs:

Q: How long is the season?

Q: Where are the sessions?

A: Most riders choose to learn at Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park in Issaquah, Washington. Interested in learning elsewhere? Get in touch with us here.


 Q: What happens if the weather isn’t good on our chosen day?

A: We ride in light rain, but do reschedule for heavy rain, heavy wind, or electrical storms. Riders will be rescheduled at no charge. All instructional credits purchased are good for one full year from the date of purchase. Due to high demand for our time, we are not able to extend this period. 


Q: Can I share a private session with a rider of a different skill level?

A: Yes, as long as the kind of terrain the more advanced rider wants to work on doesn’t put the other(s) at risk, it’s fine to have varied levels of ridership within a class. Simon and his instructors excel at teaching to various ability levels within a given group. For a first session together, your group can have riders from beginner to expert. You will all go away changed riders. Cornering and general trail skills can be taught to a group with highly varied skill.
