Two BetterRide mountain bike skills students got BR tattoos less than a week after their three day skills progression (camp)!
Jan and Eric, a couple from Santa Cruz, CA got similar but different BetterRide MTB tattoos a week after their camp with us!
What Jan had to say: “This camp was real emotional for me. I gathered so much information from the Betterride 3-day camp. The vision tool of looking ahead to the body position of being centered over the bottom bracket to the importance of drills were stressed over and over among other helpful hints. I went to two and one half other skill camps that were 8 hr day camps for beginners thru experts, but they just didn’t do it for ME. All I took away from those courses were broken bones. Those camps showed me a few drills the first half of the day and then the second half of the day was spent riding the trail. During the Betterride camp, sometimes I was on the crest of shedding tears of fear that were brought on from my experience at prior camps, but by the end of the 3-days, I was shedding tears of joy. I was overwhelmed with a great experience with a new way of teaching and learning. What a better way to share this with others than with a Betterride Tattoo!
(Mind you Gene, I do not have any negative -ness with those camps that I went to before yours. I believe in the coaches that work with these camps. I know they love coaching or else they wouldn’t be doing it. The thing about coaching and students is it has to “click”. There were students in those classes who had way less experience than I, and came out better than I did in those clinics. I did want to mention that at class but I didn’t want to talk too much.)
I won’t bore you with more praise for BetterRide from Eric, I will let his tattoo do the talking!
BetterRide founder Gene Hamilton said he was flattered and still in a state of disbelief. “We have had a lot of students blog about their experience in our camps, mention us in mountain bike magazines and write thank you notes, but this is over the top!” exclaimed Hamilton.
