The calendar is filling up fast with events and coaching! The 2017 year brings a positive change for SR&T, with more time and energy spent on mountain bike instruction. In July, I'll attend the Professional Mountain Bike Instructor Level 1 certification in Vermont. After that, I plan on spending more time giving lessons to beginner and intermediate riders.
On the event side, we'll once again hold the Casco Bay Cyclocross race in October, and take on a new role with a memorial ride happening in Gorham. Stay tuned for details on the memorial ride that is slated for 2018. Because of my motherly responsibilities, I'll once again shelve the fat bike race in New Gloucester and bikecations in Carrabassett Valley until I have more time to work. And since the Farm to Fork Fondos require 2 full days of travel with each event, we'll pass on those as well. It's just too much traveling with a 1 year old.
I'm really looking forward to focusing more time on mountain bike instruction. The certification sounds really thorough, and I've heard great things about PMBI! Check out the events page under the coaching section of my site for mtb clinic dates and offerings!
