    Northbay skills courses

    Does anyone know about any available skills courses in the Northbay (Sonoma, Marin) for beginners? Or where I might find some?

    What is a skills course? Is this a course that has various off-road obstacles for you to practice mountain biking?

    I'll have the clinic schedule for 2008 finished and published by Dec 15th.

    T -- thanks for the compliment. How are you doing? Should I ask you know what?

    Oh, and I also offer private and small-group instruction, so if you don't want to wait for a clinic on the calendar, shoot me an email and we'll schedule some time on the bike.
