Private Instruction

Increase your skill on a bicycle or learn how to throw down some new tricks by signing 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.

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 2 people per instructor.

Please note this fee includes admission for the duration of the lesson.

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.*
