So you can ride the stuff you want that challenges you. I think of it as a Goldilocks Zone. Not too scary or hard; not too easy or boring but juuuuuust right.

Mountain Bike Skills Network Podcast

At the 52-minute mark of this initial one-hour episode, I talk about my plans for complementarity between the podcast and the Mountain Bike Skills Network Facebook group. My hope is that the discussions in that online community will provide me with ideas for podcast episodes which I’ll then use to reflect back to the community, furthering the discussion.
