MTB coach Elaine Bothe is the first featured guest expert in the Mountain Bike Skills Network Facebook Group starting Feb. 13

I’m pleased to announce that MTB coach Elaine Bothe will be our first featured guest expert in my Mountain Bike Skills Network (MTBSN) Facebook Group starting Monday Feb. 13 and continuing through the week. I’ve asked her to focus on two topics: 1) Fear; 2) Jumps.

I’ve never met Elaine in person but I’ve gotten to see her work as an online Ambassador and Coach for Ryan Leech’s online courses and community, as well as a regular contributor to his blog. She’s an Associate Coach for Wenzel Coaching​, based in Portland, Oregon and is an Affiliate Instructor with Simon Lawton’s Fluidride in the Seattle, WA area.

Rebranding in process: More Mountain Bike Skills Network, less Mountain Bike Geezer

Mountain Bike Skills Network

It’s increasingly clear to me that the more I focus on developing a network that connects mountain bikers who are interested in riding skills, the more engaged I am in what I do. It might even be better for my business.

So you’ll be seeing more of Mountain Bike Skills Network and less of Mountain Bike Geezer in my communications.  I’ve changed my Facebook page, Instagram feed, Twitter feed, and email newsletter to reflect this.  This blog/website will gradually change.

Video: Interviewed by Gene Arnold, founder of Regular Guy Mountain Biking & host of the Bike Chat show on YouTube

I was interviewed last week by Gene Arnold, founder of Regular Guy Mountain Biking and host of the weekly Bike Chat show on YouTube. He published the interview (23 minutes) today.

Among those I mentioned on the show: Ryan Leech & his Ryan Leech Connection; James Wilson & his MTB Strength Training Systems; and Lee McCormack & his Lee Likes Bikes.

He surprised me with the ending. Classy, Gene!
