Thank you Harvey for making time this past Saturday to offer your experience and direction! Nancy and I felt pretty overwhelmed with all the information you put out there, and we didn't "get it" immediately, but we went riding at Boyette on Sunday, and it was one of the strongest, most in-control rides we had experienced. It will take a little time to practice some of the techniques you taught us (especially climbing
), but we will definitely have fun as we do. Also, I rode Monday with Anthem1 at Santos, and I cleared more stuff than I would have.
For any intermediate riders who has not taken Harvey's class - If you want to get faster and more efficient in all aspects of XC riding, set aside a Saturday and ten bucks (a STEAL at twice the price!), and check out Harvey's class. It will give you the skills and confidence to clean that gnarly section that keeps kicking your butt!!!
