OK, if you would have told me 7 yrs ago I would be doing some public speaking on a regular basis, I would have told you, "No way!" Well, I have come full circle. As part of Ergon and Team Topeak-Ergon's outreach, we do these roughly 2 hour mountain bike clinics at select retail locations like REI and local bike shops.
Last night, Sonya and I gave a 2 hour presentation on our experiences to a crowd of roughly 30 folks. It was a mix crowd: young, old, racers, non-racers, newbies, etc. What is great about these clinics is we can share our little tricks....and even educate someone on the basics of our sport....such as changing a flat tire, what to carry on a ride, what to eat. Here are a few images from the evening.
Table full of 'props'. Used the PowerBar products when talking about nutrition options available on the bike.
Using a GPS as a source of navigation.
Tube, multi-tool, pump....all things to have on a ride. Oh yeah, and your helmet!
Sonya talks about bike fits and where to get fit in the Denver/Boulder area.
Sonya talking about Chamois Butt'r.
