Thanks so much for the lesson was so good!! Just uploaded my watch and far out, what a difference learning how to corner correctly makes!! Even though I massively stuffed up that 2nd corner on the last seismic run still managed a good pb on it…. and have done seismic 45 times! Looking forward to getting out and practicing what you taught me tonight, Its going to make such a good difference in my riding. Thanks again and will be in touch in a few weeks for another session!!

Newcastle/Lake Macquarie – Qualitative feedback:

Thank you She Rides and Damien for such an awesome program. In 8 weeks I evolved from a “more good luck than good management” MTB rider to one who confidently rolls over obstacles, corners way better, and loves the thrill of single track. This program has also given me insight into which skills come naturally, and those I want to develop.  2017 Spring Newcastle MTB Confidence

Damien was a very knowledgable leader in so many aspects. He has extensive knowledge of Glenrock having ridden here for 20 years and was able to introduce us to new and varied trails each week as we progressed through the program. He considered us all as individuals and made sure we were confident with the piece of track we were riding. His approach was very consultative with the type of tracks we wanted to ride each week. He is also a super bike mechanic and answered, and helped, us with any questions/problems and never made us feel silly for asking! A great guy.

Damien provided a very supportive and encouraging atmosphere for all the women in our group. He was also intuitive when riders were out of their comfort/ability zone and gave alternatives.

I had a fantastic time during my She Rides course – I feel I developed a lots of skills and had a lot of small “victories” during our sessions! Damien was a great teacher! He is encouraging and gives you confidence to give things a go, without putting you under any pressure!! Kimberley.

I attended the Lake Macquarie, confidence, spring She Rides program. My Leader was Damien. I had a brand new bike and hadn’t ridden a mountain bike before, let alone on trails. I suffer from anxiety so it was hard to turn up, I missed the first two sessions. Everyone was so warm and welcoming when I finally got the courage to do it and at no time did I feel I wasn’t part of the group even though I was a few minutes behind everyone. Damien was my leader and always made me feel like I was doing great and gave me confidence to keep going. He never left me always coming back to check up on me and the ladies cheered me on as well. I always left at the end of the two hours smiling and happy! It is truly amazing what you can achieve and overcome when moving away from your comfort zone. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
