So it is Memorial day here in the US, which is when we take a day off from work to kick off summer and recognize the contributions of those who have served in our military. First, let me say thanks to all of those reading this who have served or have family that served our country – without your dedication and support we wouldn’t live in the greatest country on earth.

Since a lot of you are getting the day off today I know that there will be a whole lot of riding going on as well. This means that I’m not going to waste your time with a long blog post, just something quick to help you out on the trail.

Below you’ll find links to posts and videos on some of the basic skills you’ll be using on the trail. If you need a refresher on your technique or want something new to try out on your next ride then check out the skill you want to see more about.

There you go, a mini-skills clinic in case you need it. Hope you enjoy the posts and your next ride, have a safe holiday and I’ll be in touch Wednesday with more great tips to help you enjoy riding more.

BTW, if you haven’t done so already you can get access to more FREE skills clinic videos by signing up at
