Coaching in the Flint Mountain Range

Secret Trail

Coaching the beginner level is always a challenge to find trails that offer the "right amount" of challenge. Last week I brought girls to ride around a secret lake trail that yields fun and skills.

This ride is flat, but it is full of  roots to manage. I wanted the girls to ride this before I took them to Lake Como trail since roots are a good segway to rocks. The girls worked on lifting their front wheels and pushing their comfort with speed over obstacles. It was also hard to see the trail due to lack of activity and with mid-summer tall grass. We only had one good wreck, and of course it involved an Ant-Hill. Classic
