Beginners course 250510
Today I met a lady with the most sensible brain in the world! And what a rewarding day it was indeed. Amanda had mountain biked for a couple of years and never felt comfortable going downhill when the terrain was ever so slightly rocky, preferring to walk rather than risking having a crash. Today was all about doing things very gradually to slowly build up the confidence to tackle the downhills armed with the correct descending techniques. The terrain got increasingly rocky as the day went on and Amanda made herself proud by mobilising all the courage she had to be able to ride down things she normally never would have considered riding before! And she didn't even fall off once!
