Pat Mitzel, one of my best local riding buddies and a member of the Ryan Leech Connection where I’m a part-time coach, has published a 27-page PDF titled, The Backyard MTB Feature Build Guide. It’s available via this post, A DIY Guide to Building Backyard MTB Practice Obstacles on the RLC blog. The 27-page guide includes a tool list, materials, and details for how to build each feature.

The post also includes a 2.5-minute video of Pat riding many of the obstacles:

Alas, I didn’t blog in 2019. These things took priority:

  • My coaching with Ryan Leech Connection
  • My research for my new podcast, MTB Practice Lab
  • Managing upgrades to our local skills park
  • Practicing my own riding skills
  • Travel with my wife in our new camper
  • Grandpa duties

I updated my @mountainbikegeezer Instagram feed but only about 20 times.

I plan to resume my blogging here in 2020, mostly devoted to the podcast.
