Don – body moving up, no weight on the pedals and the bike following him up.  Just time it a little earlier and the rear tire will float up there effortlessly

Jonathan, You inspired me to do more than I ever thought I could. You helped all of us in a few short hours open our eyes to better bike handling skills out on the trails. Thank You! Mark

Jonathan,
What a great clinic. As a new person to mountain biking, this was just perfect. You focused on skills which will make us not only better, but safer riders. So often we think we know these skills, but we really don’t….and to have an opportunity to be taught the proper way is really important….and you make it fun, too! Thanks for all your feedback. It was always constructive. You did a great job zeroing in on each person’s strengths and areas for improvement. Looking forward to the next clinic.

Jonathan I am so proud of you. You are doing something we have discussed for so many years and you are following through. Just think about how many people you are helping enjoy the sport we love that much more.
