SANTA CRUZ, CA Just finished up a big weekend of guest coaching at the Dirt Series camp in Santa Cruz. Nice to have some sunny weather and meet people from different walks of life. Helping fellow riders is a pretty satisfying thing to do, give back a little, but it's so rare the opportunity comes up with the schedule.
Hardest part for me is just talking so much. It;s all day instruction for 2 days from 8am -8pm usually. Lots of effort and brain power, but Always a fun experience. I really like spending time with the other coaches, and seeing people improve under my guidance:) Thanks to all my participants, it was a blast!! 50 women in attendance- sold out ever year!! Yeah santa cruz.
Dirt Series has the best thing going, fundamentals, trail rides, time at the local shop, learning, guided rides, bike fit, etc, dinner, coffee, etc... Every single person walks away learning something, including me. Perspective. :)
Thanks to Candace for running such a rad program, Kathy Pruitt for letting me stay at her pad, and epicenter for letting a massive Transition van park at the shop all weekend:) Trek sponsors the series, but I had no choice, sprinter is my ride...
