Our coaches are the core of SheShreds MTB: their passion and love for bikes translate to effective instruction and lots of fun on the trails. Our coaches are all certified Professional Mountain Bike Instructors (PMBIA) or Bike Instructor Certification Program (BICP) and have extensive experience with coaching outdoors activities. 


We work closely with NORCO Dirt Series, and you'll many of our coaches at their awesome weekend camps. Private coaching, through SheShreds MTB is also available if that suits your learning style. 


We strive to continue our original founder's mission of getting more riders on more bikes more often! What an awesome gig! 


If you are interested in developing as a rider and learning to coach, reach out and let us know. Requirements include general radness and always having trail snacks and bug spray.

Cate has been mountain biking for a few years and absolutely fell in love with the sport and the local MTB community. Cate is known for helping bikers find riding buddies, and she’s crazy encouraging when you’re out on the trails with her. When winter comes, she doesn’t want to stop, and you can find her shredding the trails in sub-zero temperatures with the biggest smile on her face. Cate is a PMBI Level 1 certified coach, and when she’s not coaching, she is out riding. She is not afraid to take on big challenges – ask her about the time she biked across Canada. Guaranteed to be a wheelie fun coach, and she’ll even try not to re-cycle her puns. Fork yeah!




Katie is a Level 1 PMBI certified instructor, up-and-coming Dirt Series coach, former She Shreds Shredders Leader, and super obsessed trail dog mom. There is nothing that fires Katie up more than the opportunity to spread the love of biking to those around her, and with many years of snowboard instructing in her back pocket - you can rest assured that Katie’s energy and passion will translate to her coaching. We are so lucky to have Katie hanging with our Bike School beginner riders this season!

After her second(!) ACL surgery, Emma ditched her soccer cleats for some sturdy mountain bike shoes and never looked back. She recently got her Level 1 PMBIA coaching certification and is stoked to teach skills so more people can become empowered by this exciting, challenging, and totally rewarding sport. If you’re a bit nervous or aren’t 100% sure about pointing your bike downhill just yet, Emma provides a supportive introduction — having recently completed a wild adventure amongst the janky terrain of Peru, she's more than willing to discuss pushing your limits to break through the "fear barrier"! When she's not fastidiously cleaning her bike(s), Emma enjoys investigating new locations for downhill, cross-country, and gravel riding to enjoy with her wife and friends throughout Alberta and British Columbia.




Genna has been coaching one sport or another for the past 15 years. Having participated in MANY sports competitively, she has learned how to translate new skills in an easy to understand and fun way and is excited to share that with you on the saddle! A newly-minted PMBI Level 1 coach, she's eager to coach beginners and intermediates with Bike School!  Always up for an adventure she can’t wait to share the stoke for a sport she has come to deeply love. Ask her about racing enduro! 




Dee has been riding the river valley since 2008 and holds a PMBI Level 1 certification. With a background in downhill racing (pssst - she was the 2019 National DH Master’s women champ), backcountry snowboarding and triathlons, Dee realized that something was missing in Edmonton’s bike community: education-based women’s-specific group ride; so she did something about it and SheShreds came to life!  Along with her work with Trek Bikes, Dee also coaches for Dirt Series, a Whistler-based instruction weekend program for mountain bikers, coaching riders from all over Canada and the US. Dee has moved on to focusing on new endeavors but still available to coach with SheShreds. 



Some of our coaches make themselves available for private lessons. We do our best to accommodate your availability and your coach preference, but either way your private lesson will be paired with an awesome certified coach!
