Yesterday I did two rides, both on the same trail but each with its own group and pace. The difference in experience was striking.

Mountain biking give us plenty of opportunities to face fears. Perhaps the most stark form of mountain biking is dirt jumping. The jump face looms ahead, all tall and steep and imposing. You’re either going for it or you’re not.
Lately I’ve been SO STOKED on riding! I’m riding almost every day and getting really fit. As stoked as I am, I must admit I’ve descending slowly and carefully relative to my potential. Why am I riding below my potential?

Hi Lee, I purchased your excellent book Welcome to Pump Track Nation v2 (hardcover) because my son and I are building a pump track in our backyard. I was wondering if I could ask you a question. I’ve gotten a dirt sample from a friend who’s got an excavator and can deliver it to me. […]

But did you realize that those same skills are immensely valuable on nearly any trail? Pumping the trail on your mountain bike makes riding so much more […]

This piece originally appeared in the book Mastering Mountain Bike Skills v3, July 27 2017. People on the interweb have been asking me (Lee) what I think of the new oval chainrings. Before I tried them, my response was “I don’t need no help. My pedal stroke is awesome. Those are for people who suck […]
Here’s a great question from our remote coaching student Stefan in Switzerland. One last question to the drops and speeds: Is this reasoning right: given all things equal with the drop except its height, I could approach all drops smaller or higher with the same speed I‘ve been using now? With higher drops I‘ll land […]
