OK - sorry for the hook of a title, but NOTHING went wrong.
We ended up with the BEST beginner group ride in the history of the world.
The Lake Erie Wheelers - well, a certain bunch of ~15 of them - came out to the Royalview MTB Trail for a beginner class given by me, and a friend who is an IMBA certified instructor. Many of them on borrowed bikes.
She got everyone onto square one with some field exercises figuring out their bikes and how to get ready for all that bumpy stuff.
I took them out on the trail to help them apply what they'd learned.
Despite a few scuffs and some near misses, everyone had a great time. The "roadies", methinks, have just become part-time roadies, now that they've gotten a taste of the sublime nectar that is MTBing.
One quote: "I was somewhere between terror and exhilaration!"
Which, as WE all know, is the description of the perfect MTB ride.
Good riding today! Many smiles.
