Thanks for taking the time to visit the site of the JOYRIDE Mountain Bike Clinics. The clinics focus is on women, but is not limited to them. I love to ride my bike and attaining better bike handling skills makes the aggressive riding so much fun.
So why attend a JOYRIDE Mountain Bike Clinic? To gain the essentials of bike handling skills that will help you keep the rubber side down. My clinics are smaller and more one on one to help you achieve your goals. I have also devised some handy drills that women have found to be extremely helpful in attaining those well honed skills. The first Joyride clinic was September of 2007. Since then I have coached over 50 women in the Joyride Clinics. All of them came away with some new found skills.
The clinics focus on body position and how the proper body position is very important to good bike handling skills. Everything starts with a good "neutral" position. I like to call it center. I will evaluate each person and work with them to assist in improving your bicycling experience. From there we cover many other aspects of bike handling like cornering, rocks, getting the front wheel up and many other fun things.
In 2014 I completed my PMBI (Professional Mountain Bike Instructor) Certification for Level 1. The great news is I have been teaching the same skills and techniques the same as them all this time. They are a great program and I am happy to say it was a great experience and now I have more information to pass along!
I had the pleasure of working with the Dirty Harlots Race Team in May of 2014. I completed a clinic with the ladies and they are fast gals. I also had the honor of Colin Meagher at the clinic and he captured some great photos of the ladies. Thank you Colin!
2015 and 2016 I am racing for the Dirty Harlots Race Team out of Hood River Oregon! It is an honor to be on a team with such fantastic women! They are ever inspiring me to be a better human. Thank you ladies!
