Chix at speed

25 10 2009

The Mrs completed the AMBC ‘Chix at speed’ training course yesterday. She went with a new friend and they were lucky enough to have the lesson to themselves after another couple cancelled. They covered all the basics like steering, braking and balance and then moved onto more complex techniques like technical ascents and descents.

She survived and possibly even had fun. She certainly concurred some technical terrain that she thought she had no hope of ever even attempting.

I think she took some good spills judging by the number of bruises, scrapes and bumps but is still in good humor.

Apparently she had quite a few bad habits already forming so it was great to have someone impartial to point them out. The next step is to translate all these new skills into improved trail confidence. A couple of afternoon rides this week should help quite a bit.
