The Free Women's Mountain Bike Clinic Update

S is for Strong - S is for Specialized Women

As Specialized Women's Mountain Bike Ambassador, I got the honor of coaching at many women's bike skills clinics this summer. This last one in the Fall was really awesome because so many ladies turned out despite freezing cold weather and wet conditions.

I was super happy to have help from Mt Alpha female racer's Kristine Akland and Emily Plant. Also, Big Sky Bike's owner Robert Slayer and Alex Bardsley.

We also had special help from Pro bike mechanic James from Big Sky Bikes.
He checked over all the ladies bikes before we started the clinic. Thanks Guys!

Big Thanks to Le Petit Outre for the delish pastries for the ladies.
Also, Kettle House Brewery for the cold beer and Specialized Women for Specialized water bottles.
