Lee â€“ just picked up Mastering Mountain Bike Skills last week and am already benefiting from the info packed inside! Itâ€™s well written, fun to read and breaks down everything so the skills are easy to understand.
Iâ€™m 44 and just started riding again after about a 20 year absence. I started riding again after I was diagnosed with very high blood pressure and cholesterol. Iâ€™ve gone from 245 lbs to 200 lbs since the end of Feb. and the last 15 have been due to cycling. My BP and cholesterol are under control, too.
When my friend and client, Woody Itson of Satellite Sports Group (Iâ€™m the booking agent for their BMX shows) heard I was riding a junked out Huffy (an aptly named bike!) he used his connections to hook me up with a Trek Fuel EX 7, which should be here any day â€“ canâ€™t wait! Iâ€™ve been afraid to ride the Huffy Urban Assault Bike on anything but the road and a local rails to trails path, for fear of it falling apart around me as I rode. Donâ€™t think that will be a problem with the new bike, huh?
Anyway, Iâ€™ve got another 30-40 lbs to go and look forward to putting more of the great info in your book to the test.

You’re stoked, and I’m super stoked for you.
When I started riding I was well over 200 lbs at only 5-8. When someone said “Hey Fatass,” I responded. Cycling changed my life for the better, and here I am today — healthier, happier and rocking the rock!
New bike + new skills + new body = A new mindset and a whole new life
