Bike Clinics MEET OUR INSTRUCTORs

Cycle Right

Ian & Tracey Fitzpatrick

Certified CMBI Instructors

CycleRight MTB provides a safe, constructive environment for cyclists to improve their skill-set and make mountain biking safer and more enjoyable.  ​ Twenty years of riding and instruction of all types of bikers began with the sheer adventure a mountain bike can bring. As a PMBI certified instructors Ian and Tracey strive to pass on their love of riding and knowledge to the many bike riders that they get to work with each and every year.  Teton Bike Fest loves these two and we hope that you get to meet up with them in a clinic or just our for a ride around Grand Targhee Resort.

LAUREN HUGO

Certified CMBI Instructor

Lauren Hugo works with her husband at a favorite local eatery, War Birds, she is an advocate for ladies at SheJumps.org, and a PMBI certified instructor.  Seeing other women build confidence, strength, and resilience to take on their next challenge fuels her. Hearing women speak confidently about their riding, ability, or performance is especially exciting. ‘That’s why I’m passionate about getting more women riding, to gain confidence in their abilities and value their skills’.
