Bike Clinics 2019:
Brian and Andrew will meet you on Sunday, August 25 and Sunday, September 1 for their very popular bike clinics. The first bike clinic on August 25 will focus on newer riders and those with less experience. Meet at the Stockbridge Bowl boat ramp at 9am. You will go over logistics, pack riding and then go for a 20 mile bike ride for the first clinic. The second clinic is for all bikers and you will head down to Great Barrington and back up the Josh course to Stockbridge Bowl. No mountain bikes please.
NOTE: If it is raining on Sunday morning, Brian has proposed the following for the bike clinic:
Here’s what I propose: In the event of rain, the ride portion of the clinic is cancelled, but those wishing to hear the talking part of the bike clinic can meet at the Stockbridge Bowl at 9:00, and I’ll give the talk through that I normally do. I can then drive the course with my 8 passenger mini-van, and anyone who wants to hop in the van can come along with me, or they can simply drive their own cars behind me to get an idea of the route.
