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 trails on offer! Our lessons are ranging from basic skills to advanced technique 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.

Awesome Skills Clinic session with Mara and Helena. Thank you Jamie for making the Dodzy Skills Park a lot of fun… we learned so much in this one session. Jamie’s ability to break down technical skills and translate into understandable bitesize chunks made the session invaluable. I look forward to getting out there with the girls and practice what we learnt!
Just had a skills clinic with New Zealand Mountain Biking which was awesome. Jamie tailored the session to our needs and skill level and we learnt heaps. I’m excited to get out there and get practicing! I’ll definitely be booking into a follow up session
101/10 would recommend.
My friend and I did a MTB lesson w Jamie. Lots of helpful feedback and tips – which even after the 1 lesson improved both Rivey and I’s riding. Will definitely be back for another 😃
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!
Great service, learnt loads and fantastic to be able to have a private session as a family. Thanks for your amazing patience!
Joined skills session. Jamie is excellent communicator. esp for those like myself who struggle with instruction.
Showed video of techniques and corrections needed
well worth the experience and costs. Why struggle if new to something when a few sessions will set u up. It’s no fun ‘learning the hard way’ or possibly entrench bad habits which was what I’ve been doing
I spent an excellent morning tuning my MTB skills with Jamie in the forest. Highly recommended to any one keen to improve their shredding.
Highly recommend 1:1 lessons with Jamie. I’ve learned heaps and I’m now smashing my PBs. We focused on a few specifics so I wasn’t overloaded, very chilled, no pressure to do anything that I felt I couldn’t manage. Looking forward to the next one 🙂

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.
