The next week: Pinned!

I’m loading up for a week of adventure in California. We’re talking BMX research, mountain bike clinics and some quality riding.

Classes are almost full, so don’t delay!

Thursday – Drive west from Boulder. It’s raining here. Maybe snag a quick ride in Fruita? Stop somewhere shy of Vegas.

Friday – Drive to Chula Vista, near San Diego. Feats of Strength at every gas stop. That keeps the blood flowing.

Saturday – Spend the day at the Olympic Training Center. Meet with Greg Romero, Mike Day and whoever else is around. Do interviews and photos for the BMX book.

Sunday – Same as Saturday. I hope I can get some laps on that monstrous track. No, I will not be hitting that double!

Monday – SOLD OUT – Clinics at Southridge Park in Fontana. A private at 10 a.m., then a private at 2 p.m., then a group session at 5 p.m. The group session was bought by the InCycle race team. Stoked! Pinned!

Tuesday – SPOTS OPEN – Teaching at Aliso/Woods canyon in Aliso Viejo. I have a group session at 5 p.m. at the Canyon View Park entrance. There are a couple open spots. $200 gets you in there. Paypal the dough to or give me a heads-up and bring cash. Email access will be spotty, but I will check voice mail: 303-442-1242.

Wednesday – SOLD OUT – Group clinic in Palo Alto, up in NorCal. The Mere Mortals bought the whole session. I worked with them a couple years ago; this will be fun.

Thursday – Private session in Palo Alto, then start driving east. Get a ride along the way.

Friday – Finish driving to Boulder. Whew!

Saturday – Public Core Skills Clinic at The Fix. Spots are open. $100 gets you in there. More info and sign up. You can do Paypal or bring cash; just let me know.


If the site gets stale, that means I’m out there pinning it.

    The Sprinter is loaded: 5 bikes, 3 cameras, laptop, food prepared by The Wife, bedding, clothes, gear, 20 gallons of water and 25 gallons of diesel …

    Getting a late start because of random work stuff. Where will I stop tonight? It doesn’t matter!

    Next time you will be in Norcal give us a heads up. It would be great to have some open clinics here. Have fun and drive safe.

    Thanks Bob. Sitting at a truck stop in Green River, UT. I think I’ll be back out in August. I’ll make plenty of time for clinics. Stay tuned …

    You HAVE to hit that double. How could you turn up there with a bike and not want to nail it?

    You’ll have to measure it for us out of interest.

    Have fun!

    Hey Lee,

    Any chance of getting a clinic in north of the Golden Gate when you return in August??

    I’m at the OTC, and that thing is freaking huge!

    The whole track is out of this world. I challenged Chris Powell to a no pedal/no jump race. Wish me luck … 🙂

    I have photos of you buttering the Olympic BMX track. You, my friend, know how to pin it. I just take pictures.

    It’s midnight, and I’m camping in the van on the Grapevine. Taught some clinics today in O.C. Taught all day yesterday in Fontana. Teaching in Palo Alto tomorrow … AND: riding the new Calabasas dirt jumps on the way to the clinic. Braaap.
