Winter riding season has started charge the lights and come out and ride
Five N.A.M.B.A members completed the Bicycle Instructor Certification Program held at Wesley Woods Christian Ed Center in May. Despite a little rain on Saturday the weather was great. There were a total of 7 people that participated and passed the certified guide and level 1 instructor class. We made 3 new friends, Mike from Mike's indoor bike park in Dayton OH, Josh the activities coordinator from Wesley Woods, and instructor Kelly from Lynchburg, VA. N.A.M.B.A members Keith, Cathy, Brad, Andy and Ron attended. The class opened our eyes to some of the basic things we do every time we ride and it also gave us the confidence and skills to be better instructors and riders. If you are in the Dayton OH area check out Mike's Bike Park they are open all year around(www.mikesbikepark.com). A special thanks to Kelly Hazelgrove for driving all the way up from VA if you are in the Lynchburg VA area stop in and check out Blackwater Bike Shop (www.blackwaterbikeshop.com). Last but not least thanks to Wesley Woods for putting on the class and feeding us. Remember they are having a mountain bike camp this year in July if you know of any kids who would like to take a week long class on mountain biking contact Wesley Woods at www.wesleywoods.com
This video was shot a week before the official opening of URSUS. We wanted to focus on the trail build and ride style. URSUS opened in time for Jake's Witch Project. However due to heavy rains and winter setting in it has been closed until further notice. Check this trail out spring 2019.
Check out trail work day early spring 2018. This day was a cold morning but we had about 20 volunteers out finishing up the OHI-YO trail. Over 1/2 of that trail is hand built by NAMBA members and volunteers. We want to thank everyone who attended this trail day. https://youtu.be/tci1-4UqDJM
