I’ve got a good friend who lives in SLC. Great guy. Wants to get into MTBing, but is beyond a total newbie. If he lived in Victoria I’d show him the ropes, but the only time I am down Utah way is when I am headed to Moab for some decidedly non-beginner friendly riding.
So if you are in SLC, ride mountain bikes and are willing to gently help out an aspiring rider learn the ropes let me know.
I’m very picky about my friends so aside from free beer and the karma of helping someone out you’ll likely make a good friend. 🙂
Alternatively if you know of anyone doing MTB skills coaching in SLC and can send me the details that would work fine. My Goggle searches didn’t turn up anything yet.
