If you’re looking to increase your skill on a bicycle or looking to learn how to throw down some new tricks sign up for private lessons with our certified instructors. Please schedule at least a couple days in advance so that we can make sure an instructor is available. We’ll make sure you have the basics down and then help build up your skill level so you can get better at whichever style of riding you prefer. Wherever you begin, our instructors will help take you or your kids to the next level!
One hour of weekday private instruction is $60* per hour for individual instruction.
One hour of weekend/holiday private instruction is $75* per hour for individual instruction.
Additional participants may be included at $45 ($65 weekends) per person for up to 5 people per instructor.
If a group of 5 or more wants an additional instructor, the initial $60 ($75 on weekends & holidays) per hour charge applies a second time.
Please note this fee includes admission for the day, so participants may continue riding after the lesson for no additional charge.

Blake made the trek to Portland in 2017 from central New York. BMX freestyle is his main focus, primarily in parks and dirt. He likes to attack tricks aggressively, whether it’s in the air or utilizing brakes to get technical. One thing he has always treasured about BMX is the fact that everyone is their own rider – an individual. Now that he is a part of the Lumberyard he is developing into a knowledgeable coach and a strong member of the instructor team.

Guided Tour – Add a Private Instructor for Your Party
Having a Party? Ensure guests have a blast by including our private guided tour of the park!
The Lumberyard is thrilled to offer all parties and groups an optional introduction to the park including some basic coaching by one of our amazing park instructors.
The instructor spends about 45 minutes with each group, introducing them to each area of the park, conveying the rules and standard etiquette, checking the riders’ bikes, sharing some bike activities, and concluding with a supervised riding session with pointers to help riders be more confident and have more fun!
This is a great way to kick off your party and help the kids jump start their experience. Add this great option to your birthday party for only $90.*
