RideLogic Level 1 Coach Certification

Are you a working mountain bike coach looking to elevate your craft? An aspiring coach looking for the best training? An avid rider looking to learn as much as possible?

Join the growing RideLogic team of well-trained, highly prepared and super-effective coaches. All you need to do is study the lessons on this site then pass an online test. When you pass the test, you'll get a printable certificate — perfect for continuing education credits, deepening your instructional practice, starting your coaching business or just being proud of yourself.

RideLogic is the brainchild of Lee McCormack. Some things about Lee:

  • He's the Lee in Lee Likes Bikes.
  • Written 11 successful mountain biking books (including Mastering Mountain Bike Skills).
  • Wrote the training manual used by the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) and served as the head trainer for the U.S. high school mountain bike league.
  • Has coached more than 8,000 riders of all ages, genders, styles and levels.
  • Has trained more than 1,000 mountain bike coaches, both with NICA and with Lee Likes Bikes/RideLogic.

Advantages of RideLogic coach training:

  • Online. You don't have to travel anywhere or take days away from work and family.
  • Proven. Lee and his team of RideLogic Master coaches have taught more than 10,000 riders. Our system just plain works.
  • Simple. Lee uses his background as an information designer to continually refine his approach to MTB instruction. RideLogic is the simplest, easiest to learn, easiest to teach system out there.
  • Logical. Everything in RideLogic makes sense, from bike setup to body mechanics to riding skills. It's all a cohesive system. The things you teach beginners work just as well for experts — just at a higher level of commitment and speed.
  • Practical. The other major MTB coach certification program teaches you a bunch of moves and tricks. While this might be fun, we think it's more effective to teach you a system — a way of thinking about riding — that 1) makes you a much better rider and 2) gives you the tools to teach all levels of riders. We believe in teaching you a solid cognitive model — the Grand Unified Theory of Shred — then letting you teach to the level of your students.
  • Economical. Our program costs significantly less than the other one. It also doesn't force you to spend three full days away from things that are important to you.
  • Profitable. You can build a coaching practice that provides a very nice living and a professional career doing what you love.
