Bike Skills Training

LLB.png

Patrick Carey is a professional skills coach with Lee Likes Bikes and RideLogic. He's spent many years understanding how riding mechanics work at a fundamental level. These principles apply to all riders, regardless of experience or discipline. In fact, the best riders simply execute the same fundamentals with more power and speed. Just as important as the skills themselves, Patrick has learned teaching methods that work for all backgrounds, experience levels and learning styles. He travels throughout the Eastern U.S., and beyond, teaching clinics and working with individuals and private groups. If you want to get better at riding a bike, any kind of bike, Patrick can make that happen. 

Certified as a RideLogic and USA Cycling skills coach, Patrick has dedicated his career to helping athletes in all areas of their game. He brings 20 years of experience as national-level mountain bike and cyclocross racer and nine years of full-time professional coaching. Whether you are brand new, or you're a top-level professional racer, Patrick can help make quantum leaps forward in your ability to ride better and faster. This doesn't take weeks and months, either. In 2-3 hours, we can make massive improvements. In one day, we can redefine your riding.

Patrick teaches with the Lee Likes Bikes method, created and constantly refined by Lee McCormack. What separates us from the rest is our simple and cohesive building of fundamental movements. If you're riding and constantly in your own head, running checklists, and wondering which skill applies to which situation, we can fix that. The LLB method allows for a quiet mind with a simple and highly effective style of riding. No setup maneuvers, no plateaus, just limitless progression.

If you'd like to bring Patrick's professional instruction to you, we can arrange for a private or small group clinic just about anywhere. Click on the contact link here, or the button below, and we'll make it happen. If you're in the Northeast, consider a trip to work with Patrick in Upstate New York. The riding is world class, and there's something to enjoy for everyone. Many students like to make overnight trips with a mix of instruction and adventure. It's a great place to bring your family, too.

When working with Patrick, expect to rock these skills, plus whatever you want to learn (and are ready for):
 

  • Attack Position

  • Braking

  • Cornering

  • Riding up Steep Things

  • Riding Down Steep Things

  • Pumping Terrain

  • Reading Trail Features

  • Choosing Better Lines

  • Riding Drops

  • Hopping Obstacles

  • Shredding and having more fun!

Private Instruction:

If you would like private training for yourself or a small group, we love to work that way. Individuals and tight groups allow for even more tailored coaching. In fact, about 2/3 of our riders choose private coaching, either from the beginning or to build on what they learned in group clinics. If you're in the northeast, consider making a trip to the Lake Placid area for coaching. Don't worry if you aren't close by. If you're serious about upping your game, we can make it happen. Patrick and Lee often works with riders remotely on their skills, either in conjunction with in-person sessions or fully remote.

Purchase​ private coaching hours.

Group Clinics:

Full-day group clinics are an incredible way to boost your progress. We spend the morning working on skills and the afternoon on the trails learning to apply them. We keep our groups limited to 6 riders per coach. This ensures everyone gets plenty of individual attention and makes the progress they seek.

Full-day group clinics are $300 per person and it's the best money you will ever spend on yourself.

Already have your own group and want a private clinic? Awesome! I love teaching groups of friends to shred better together. We’ll meet at your favorite spot, learn skills and drills, eat lunch then apply the skills to the local terrain. It’s always a big, fun and impactful day. This will change your riding life. Maybe your life, too. Seriously.

• Tell me where you are and what you want. Email me now.
• We'll work together to pick a location and date(s).
• The cost is $1800
• Share the adventure with as many riders as you want. Six is the ideal number. You can go bigger if you want.
