The plan

10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a short lunch break (BYOL)

Expect to dial in these skills …

• Position
• Braking
• Cornering
• Pumping
• Technical climbing
• Technical descending

… then apply them on some sweet trails.

No matter how much fun you’re having now, or how good you already are, Andy will show you a whole new world of Flow (capital F). This is the smartest money you will ever spend on your riding.

Note from a happy rider:


I wanted to take a couple of minutes to let you know what a pleasure it was working with Andy. This was probably the best investment I’ve made in MTB. If I were to come up with a marketing phrase for your type of work, I’d say: “invest in your skills, not a more expensive bike”.

I do have to tell you: your F6 book definitely prepared me for this session. I was a little tired during the climb, but I had the energy and strength to get the benefit of the downhill sections and Andy’s tips. And I for sure wasn’t destroyed by the end of the day.

Anyway, I know I have a lot of work to do, but I’m excited and I have enough building blocks to work with thanks to you guys. This will not be the last time that I enroll for a class at the Rad Academy.

Time: The clock starts at the appointed time. Be ready to ride.

Equipment: Your bike should be well adjusted and in good working order. If we believe your bike is not safe, we will spend clinic time making it safe. If we need to adjust anything — brakes, gears, suspension — we will use clinic time.

Changes and cancellations: If you want to change your appointment, you must notify me by phone or email within 48 hours. After that time, there will be no change or refund.

Weather: Bad weather does not cancel sessions. If the conditions permit any kind of riding, we will ride. If it’s raining, bring a jacket. If it’s muddy, we’ll find another surface to ride on. If the lift closes because of lightning, we will push our bikes or practice in the parking lot. If we do cancel because of weather, it will be at the instructor’s discretion, and he will notify you as early as possible.

Liability: Bike riding has inherent risks, and you must accept those risks. You will sign a waiver before you ride.

If you are a mountain bike skills coach or instructor, and you work on your own or with another party, please do not sign up for an LLB clinic. See below:
