not sure if I'll make it up to CR or not, but i ride allaire a few times a week.
If there's room, I would be interested in this. Would love to hone some of my skillz on the bike.
What would be some of the focal points of the session? Cornering? Weight distribution? Or would it be based on each persons current skill level?
I should get back into this now that i'm living the bike life for myself and not work...
Hi everyone, I spoke with Ben and he's actively checking his available schedule to accomodate us. His weekends are booked solid but will give us an update soon. It may not happen in May/June but when he's ready I'm sure we will be ready too!
Checkout his cool promo video regarding intermediate skills class.
Bummer! maybe i should take a day off work!
Ha! I'm in that video! I'm famous!!
if you can get enough people into it I would be down for a weekday clinic.
Friday afternoons after 2pm are possible for me
anyone else have summer Fridays
I could also take a Friday afternoon off as a possible workaround. Let's get a tally for that potential option.
@Gnick - I believe your game. @qclabrat - Thanks for taking lead. @Eddy-V - In like Flynn
@jumpa - Moving in your direction.
Friday is a slight possibility for me, looping around to the earlier part of this thread, my fitness is pretty good, my skills not so much, but a park with more challenges would seem better for me.
where do you usually ride?
Wheelies and manuals would be great to master!
I could leave work early during the week if that helps scheduling.
Mostly at Stephans, some at Allaire.
Hey, fellas. I'm booked solid on Weekends until July.
A Friday option would open things up significantly.
Fri, May 5th
Fri, June 2nd
Fri, June 30th
Learning is done in a grass field. We can include a ride and hunt for challenges to session but that is after going over skills.
I like the idea of working on skills for 2-3 hours and then going for a ride together. Throw out some park suggestions and I'll let you know what I think. Lewis - Morris, Ringwood, Clayton, Allaire, Thorne, Kittatinny, and others are good possibilities.
Beginner/ Intermediate and Manuals/Wheelie do not go together.
Search for Ryan Leech' s 30-day challenges if you want those skills.
What kind of skills are worked on in the beginner/intermediate courses?
I looked at the Ryan Leech programs but was looking for something a little more personal.
Thanks Ben, looking forward to the instruction.
I'm game for Friday May 5th, either PM or AM session, with a nod given to PM if that gets our head count to 5 riders.
I'm interested in 6/2 or 6/30. I'm booked on 5/5.
5/5 in the afternoon would work well for me
wheelies, bunny hops, how to shift body weight to get over big logs without ramps on each side. stuff like that is what i'm looking to do. Bens video looks like it covers pretty much all that stuff.
I'd like to do two, kind of like part one and two at the intermediate level
really want to conquer steep switchbacks in both directions, I recall they used to be part of the intermediate agenda
beginner class focused on braking, body position and bike separation
good with Ben's suggestion to skip manuals
fine with 5/5 and 6/30 afternoons
that seems fine with me
