Yummy! Here’s a lovely piece of lemon cake that Dale baked and brought along for us to eat on our skills coaching session yesterday.

Dale has been riding for about a year and he’s getting on pretty well. He wanted to look at techniques for improving his riding on steeper trails, so we headed to the “Blue Pig” which is a classic, fast Calderdale descent. In the three hour session I soon had him braking in the right places and getting air off the drop offs and “rain bars” that can often intimidate riders. With some little changes to his body position on the bike he started to carry more speed, with more control. Most importantly he was having more fun and beating the fear. Piece of cake really.
