Our Mission

Mountain biking: We love this sport. The way it connects you with nature, builds a confidence and mindfulness that overflows into everyday life, and most of all, is so much fun. Our aim is to use this passion to grow and inspire the community of mountain biking within Fernie, BC and beyond.

Ridetheory acknowledges that the land on which we ride is the traditional unceded territory of the Ktunaxa Peoples.

What People Are Saying

Jena was great! Informed, positive, enthusiastic. She did such a great job of sharing her knowledge, providing lessons, and encouragement. She had great information and was great at helping everyone out.

- Carrie W.

I'm so incredibly glad to have taken a lesson with Ridetheory- Christine was fantastic at creating a safe, comfortable setting and tailored the class to move at my pace. I was admittedly pretty nervous while approaching some difficult skills, but I found her positive reinforcement, encouragement, and obvious enthusiasm for sharing the sport made the lesson so much fun. I would highly recommend Ridetheory to anyone who else who is interested in the sport but unsure how to begin!”

- Stephanie N.

"As a somewhat new beginner, I was looking for instruction to help me gain confidence on the trails and the two private lessons allowed us to work at my pace. My instructor was great at finding ways to explain new techniques to me, then gave me practical ways to practice them. I highly recommend Ridetheory!"
