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.
For those of you on my email list, it’s not news that I’ve launched my new venture, Thick Skull Mountain Bike Skills.
But it’s time I announced it for the rest of you who visit this site regularly or occasionally.
See my blog post on Thick Skull for details on the venture.
I’ve also set up a Thick Skull Mountain Bike Skills Twitter feed (@ThickSkullMTB) and a Thick Skull Mountain Bike Skills Facebook page.
I’ll still be posting here regularly on the Mountain Bike Geezer blog. But anything to do with skills or learning to ride I’ll either post on the Thick Skull MTB blog or provide more details about it in my revamped email newsletter.

If you’re a subscriber to my Mountain Bike Geezer news email list, you’ll receive an email this week with a link to a first draft of a new video I’ve created titled:

I’m changing the nature of the Mountain Bike Geezer news email list as part of a new online venture I’m developing.
Up until now, I’ve only used the the email list as way to alert people to new blog posts. I’ll still do that but I’ll also be using it to distribute some exclusive how-to-ride related info. And when my new venture launches, people on the list will be the first to know.
So if you’re reading this blog post on the website but you’re not on the list, click here to subscribe. It only takes 30 seconds or so. And if you’re not happy with what I’m sending you, one click gets you off the list.
Doug Janni, a member of the Mankato Area Mountain Bikers (MAMB), surprised me a week or ago with a cool Mountain Bike Geezer logo design for this blog. I’ve superimposed it onto the four photo banners that currently rotate in the header.
Doug is a full-time graphic designer for Beacon Promotions, Inc. and has his own side biz, Mad Rabbit Design.
If you’ve subscribed to the Mountain Bike Geezer blog via my email newsletter (I use the MailChimp service), you may be wondering why nothing’s been delivered the past few months.
I ‘paused’ delivery late last fall to change some settings and neglected to turn it back on. Last week, a subscriber alerted me to the problem. Duh.
If you want to catch up on blog posts you’ve missed, you can just go to the Mountain Bike Geezer home page and scroll to the bottom, clicking on ‘older entries’ when you get there.
Or you can pick a month from the blog archives drop-down menu on the right sidebar and you’ll be shown all the blog entries from that month, for example, January, 2013.
