Private lessons are targeted one-on-one sessions between you and a coach covering whatever topic you wish. After we evaluate your needs, we provide skills demonstrations, drills, and direct feedback to help you make quick improvements.

Private tutoring can involve putting a bicycle on an indoor trainer to discuss shifting, showing you a route for your commute, or working on your climbing and descending technique.  The possibilities are endless.

Typically a private tutoring session will be held at at the Cycle Universities Training Centers at Sand Point or West Seattle and is available weekdays, evenings and weekends.

We offer private lessons at the affordable premium of $80/hr, or $300 for four hours. Depending on your goals, your coach may recommend a single longer lesson, or recurring sessions biweekly to master a new skill.

We also perform private group lessons.  These are perfect for the team or training group looking to build skill together, whether you are interested in racing, training together for STP, or simply becoming safer, more efficient riders.  We use a sliding price scale, details below.
