The Western Sydney Mountain Bike (WSMTB) Club are hosting a women’s skills clinic on the 16th of January 2010. This is the day before the second event in the JetBlack Summer Enduro Series so it’s a good chance to get to know the terrain, discover ways of upping your confidence on niggling sections of singletrack and spend the weekend in the fresh lower mountains air.
Instructors are being provided by Australian Mountain Bike Clinics as part of a new initiative to give something back to clubs. The clinic will go for six hours and cater for riders of all skill and fitness levels. Groups will be limited to 8 riders per 1 instructor (including myself). I’d recommend bringing enough water and food to get yourself through the day as there’s nothing worse than having to concentrate on a bike with an empty stomach before the lunch break! The clinics will cost $62.50 per rider, or $85 if you want to add a BBQ lunch on Saturday and the 4 hour race on Sunday to your party list.
Further details, and online entry information, are available on the WSMTB website. If you haven’t been to the site in a while, it’s worth another look as it’s recently been snazzed up and includes some great photos from recent events.
