Mountain bike lessons are the best way to confidently take your riding to the next level. We break riding down to bite-size pieces so that it is easy to understand and is super low-stress. With your own experienced instructor and the best place in New Zealand to put new mountain biking skills to the test, we are continually helping riders gain new skills to get the most out of their bike, their time, and the trails on offer! Our lessons are ranging from basic skills to advanced techniques on the most technical terrain for both MTB and eMTB.
We offer gift vouchers for people who are looking at getting something meaningful for a friend, family member, or workmate. Gifting an experience can be seen as a more meaningful gift than a material item.
Experience gifting is when you give someone a gift that is a life experience or adventure rather than a material item. It is a ‘doing’ gift. More and more, people are turning away from mindless consumerism and opting instead for experiences that will enrich their gift recipients, inspire them and teach them. Ultimately, experience gifts leave your gift recipient with wonderful memories that they can look back on.

A group of us attending a MTB training course run by Jamie and overall it was AWESOME – great engagement, timely, well paced! Jamie did a great job at gauging the level of the group and then progressing us throughout the session – at the end we were all better equiped to take on the trails!
Definitely looking at booking some follow up sessions
My partner had a 3h one-on-one MTB (basic skills) lesson with Christy and she had such a great time. This lesson was invaluable as it instilled some basic skills that now gives her the confidence to ride grade 3 trails with far less worry about a big stack. Not only is she enjoying MTB riding now but it now gives us something outdoors to do together with many years of fun ahead. Many thanks NZ Mountain Biking!
Absolutely recommend Jamie, he is a great instructor and certainly helped explain so much to us. Everything from the correct footwear to the geometry of our new e-bikes and the importance of our body position to achieve best performance (a change from our older style bikes)
Jamie’s tips and improvements with our bike setups along with riding techniques has certainly improved our riding style and performance (and of course making it all so much more fun).
What a difference a session makes 🙂
Jamie is very patient, I never felt rushed, even after 3 x tries on one of the hills !!
We will certainly have follow up clinics once we have mastered the latest techniques – Thanks Jamie, not only did we have a great time we learnt a lot and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone who is looking to improve their riding skills to do some work with Jamie at New Zealand Mountain biking.
Thanks Jamie!! The 3 hour skills lesson was worth the $$ and I know what I learnt will help me ride better, more confidently, and no doubt reduce my chance of injuries!! You teaching style is fun and easy to understand. I’d totally recommend doing a session with Jamie if you’re new to MTB or want to improve your skills fast. Look forward to another session in the future Tracy
Jamie was super friendly and helped us all to improve our individual skill sets. He explained all techniques thoroughly and gave lots of opportunity for questions. He provided useful skills and drills for us to practice and perfect, as well as giving helpful feedback. We had a lot of fun, and the time went really quickly. Can highly recommend NZMB for improving any level of skill. Thanks Jamie.

What an epic morning with Jamie at the Redwoods park in Rotorua!! After watching me ride and finding out the areas I wanted to improve on, Jamie tailored a skills session for me to practice new techniques. We then spent two hours riding different types of trails so I could practice what he was telling me with Jamie providing real time analysis and reminders as required. I am new to the sport and I found Jamie’s instructions to be easy to understand and to put into play. He made it very easy for me to feel more comfortable on the bike. Proof is in the pudding… my strava times got significantly better as the day rolled on. I highly recommend spending time with Jamie if you are serious about becoming a more improved rider.
