Blair met us there with her cool truck, cones, and boards set up in a course on one of the group campground sites at Buffalo Run Campground on highway 20. We started with a multiple guess, true/false, written exam. "You can't miss more than 15", she informed us. There were 40 - 45 questions. Whew! We all passed! Then onto the riding part.
She explained what we were doing, demonstrated for us, and then watched as we each rode around the course doing the aforementioned skill. The skills were things like braking with both hand and foot brakes, braking while standing, leaning into turns, weaving in and out of pylons, and finally going over 4" by 4" boards laid out to simulate things you would encounter on a trail that you need to go over.
She discussed obstacles and hazards of different terrains we might encounter (little did she know - we HAVE encountered). (Anyone going on a ride led by Uncle Brian might agree... ) After she shared a couple of near death experiences she has had from making mistakes on the trail, we (Brian) told her of one near death experience we (I) had one time. Some of you might remember riding up Beaver Creek area up Logan Canyon. Then we each received our temporary 'I'm in the club' card. Permanent ones are in the mail!

Overall, this is was a class and we would recommend it to everyone who rides.
Thank you, Blair. We had a great time.
