Simon Says MTB Skills Weekend Camp: American Heart Month

February is American Heart Month and we can't think of any better way to get our hearts pumping than an exhilarating mountain bike ride. Better skills means more enjoyment and more enjoyment means more frequent rides. So do something that will have long-lasting heart health benefits by ratchet up your game during this month's Weekend Camp. Designed for aspiring to advanced intermediate riders. Surgeon general's warning: mountain biking can be habit forming and lead to feelings of euphoria and permagrins. In the event of a ride that lasts longer than 4 hours, the patient should definitely not seek immediate medical attention. Side effects may include the urge to Strava your ride, an insatiable desire to buy new gadgets and more bikes, and/or enter cross country races which may lead to 12-hour then 24-hour races, Hundies and eventually multi-day sufferfests that will cause you to call in sick from work ... a lot ... or maybe just quit your job altogether.
