I’m gearing up for a summer filled with skills presentations and clinics, with YOU in mind! Take advantage of these options, and you WILL see your riding improve!
FREE Presentations – New and improved for 2019, with the addition of 50 demo videos! There are 4 presentations scheduled from the end of April until the beginning of June. Videos show bike components you need to know, the definition of/practical exercises for body-bike separation, pointers to increase your confidence and control on a mountain bike, strategies to communicate with your significant other while out on a ride. This is a great way to get excited and motivated about riding your bike! You may attend as many FREE presentations as you want, although it’s the same info each time. The attached poster details times/dates/places. Hope to see you at one!
Skills Series – Also new and improved for 2019, the skills series is a 5-week progression held on consecutive Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings (not WMBA nights!) throughout the summer. Each 2-hour session builds on the skills learned the week prior, so best results come from taking the series in the recommended order and practicing your new skills between sessions. Sessions include: Fundamentals (not just for beginners); Ramps and Drops; Cornering and Switchbacks; Wheels Off the Ground (new in 2019!); and Intro to Jumping (new in 2019!). Fundamentals is required prior to taking either Ramps and Drops or Cornering and Switchbacks, while Wheels Off the Ground is required prior to Intro to Jumping. There are various 5-week series scheduled starting in May and running until the end of August. The attached poster shows dates and times. Reserve your spot early as these series will fill up!
Skills Clinics – If you are looking to do some skills work one-on-one, as a couple, or in a small group, then a private clinic might suit your needs! All different ability levels able to be accommodated – let me know what you want to improve and I will figure out a way to make it happen! Related to mountain biking of course…
“Girls Who Ride” Club – Starting in June, and running the same months as WMBA group rides, MTB with Stacy will sponsor a club for teenage girls to ride together, developing camaraderie and skills in a fun environment, like WMBA but for our younger riders. Please contact Stacy if you know a teen who would like to join the club, or if you want to volunteer to help. The rides will likely run every other Wednesday evening throughout the summer months. Stay tuned for more details!
And in even more good news…WMBA members receive a discount of 15% off all MTB with Stacy offerings! Feel free to contact me at or 719-661-2967 with your questions, to reserve a spot, or schedule a more personalized skills clinic.
