Back to Mountain Bike Geezer; new design on the way

In January of 2016, I began collaborating with Ryan Leech at his membership website, Ryan Leech Connection \ Online MTN Bike Skills Coaching  where I’m an online coach and a marketing affiliate.

As my work with Ryan continues to expand, I’ve decided to phase out my “MTB Skills Network” brand and return this site to its original roots, Mountain Bike Geezer.

Mountain Bike Geezer

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be revamping this website’s design and overall direction. Subscribe to my Mountain Bike Geezer email newsletter to keep up on all the developments.

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.

Thick Skull Mountain Bike Skills: a new venture for the Mountain Bike Geezer

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.  Continue reading Thick Skull Mountain Bike Skills: a new venture for the Mountain Bike Geezer

How to get my new video: Light Hands, Heavy Feet – Developing the Habit

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:

Light Hands, Heavy Feet: Developing the Habit

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.



Blog delivery via email now back

new-mailchimp-logoIf 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.
