Ernie having a teaching moment with a couple of the boys.
Wes working with Shelby on contact drills. Ernie was emphasizing the importance of being able to absorb contact.
The goal is for the riders to be comfortable and in control of their bikes no matter the situation.
Shelby is wondering why female athletes are sometimes taken less seriously than their male counterparts. Zack, aka "Fabian", is just wondering.
Ernie has been doing the clinics on Thursday evenings, but I don't know his plans going forward, so if you're interested, you should give him a shout at Chainwheel or Leborne. We have some very talented young riders around town and it's gracious of Ernie to share his experience and expertise to help them grow as cyclists. I've ridden with all of these teens from time-to-time and they're all capable and responsible on the bike. I can't really vouch for them other than that, but perhaps they'll help persuade me that the country isn't going to hell in a handbasket after all.
