Mountain Biking at Bromont for Dare Andie!
This weeks Dare Andie actually involved personal demon of mine. On my last attempt to go mountain biking, easily 10 years ago, I went over my handle-bars head first and vowed never to return to the mountain on a bike. This time I went with an experienced biker who brought me a fabulous Specialized mountain bike to ride and rode under the tutelage of Jeff Silas, founder and coach at Dirt Camp. Here are the best tips: Don't brake in a panicked state. Look up far ahead of you on the trail NOT down in front of your bike. Trust what your bike can do.
