I've decided to attend the May session and need to secure some accommodations as I don't care to drive down and back each day from Indy. Not knowing this far out what the weather will be like, I'm hesitant to commit to regular camping. I'm a wuss like that I guess. :)

There are still rustic cabins available, so if anyone is looking to split the cost of a couple of nights, let me know.

Thanks,

~Yet another Dave

I did a BetterRide Clinic a couple years ago and loved it.  You will definitely have a blast and learn a lot!

Thanks, that's what I'm aiming for overall. Not being a cyclist for years means I'm playing some catch-up in the skills department. I'm hoping I'm not doing everything wrong currently, but I'm sure they'll tell me where I'm failing.

I'm excited and grateful they're offering a 2nd clinic. I do wish my friends were more interested in the investment but they have other obligations and priorities that I don't have.

If I had the money I'd sen my son to that for his birthday gift. He could definetly benefit from it. As I'm sure I could as well😁

Anyone would benefit form good training, regardless of skill level.  That's why the pro's all have coaches.  It does become a question of time and money.  Especially, for those of us who are riding for fitness and recreation rather than racing.


I do think I have become a much safer rider (one of the nicest benefits) since attending the camp.  Prior to that, I was off balance a lot riding and any little root or mistake would cause a crash.  Now the first mistake, rock or root may take me off balance but I won't crash unless I make a second mistake while recovering.

Sounds like a great camp for sure.  I am thinking about attending the September session.  Just hoping it won't be too hot to camp.

IMO, it doesn't get too hot to camp in Indiana.


In Texas, it gets too hot to camp.   ;)

I would love to attend the camp, but it would have to be later in the year. I crash too much, I need to fix that.

I did the camp last year in Louisville because I still felt like a newb on the trail.  I learned a ton and no doubt became a better rider. I highly recommend the camp.

Just wanted to mention that Sheltowee Fundamentals is now available for lessons/coaching as well. 


Cost is way less than the BetterRide clinic and the head coach is a local rider and IMBA-ICP certified.
