Mountain Biking is one of the fastest growing sports among women in the US.  Proper technique on a mountain is often counter-intuitive, causing many riders to limit their improvement by ingraining bad riding habits.  A proper curriculum of Core Skills progression enables riding in balance and in control.   Mountain Bike champions who benefit from BetterRide Instruction include Ross Schnell, Greg Minaar, Sue Haywood,  Marla Streb, Mitch Ropelato, Kelli Emmett and many many others.
