MAN JUMPING BIKE

 

Bobby started MTB Over 40 not so long ago as a way to get in better shape, find community and spread his new-found love of mountain biking with anyone willing to listen.

And listen we will.

This week’s IDMTB Podcast dives a little deeper into what MTB Over 40 is all about, how to get into the sport as a new rider and whether or not enduro racing is for the MTB newbie or not.

Girl on Bike

 

It’s rare to find an instructor who possesses the gift to teach and a passion for the subject matter.

Shanna Powell is that rare exception.

As the proprietor and leader of Endless Bike Company, Shanna knows a good bit about how to make your bike run better. But she also knows a lot about how to make YOU better on your bike. And she has a very special gift for showing you how to get there.

Shanna joined the Involuntary Dismount Podcast at Gateway Park in Travelers Rest, SC for a day of private instruction.

Refusing to charge for the lesson, Shanna said she had come to help us progress our riding simply for the sake of sharing the love of riding with others.

What kind of person does that? Shanna does.

PS: It snowed on us while we recorded. Which was poetic justice for all of Kris’ whining about the cold in Episode #005 with Cognative MTB.

Guy Buying Bike

 

This week was a fun conversation with a friend of 20 years – Sean McGroarty AKA Shorty Rides.

Sean is a Radio Personality who hosts his own nightly program on the big watt radio station in town, he owns his own entertainment company dedicated to making weddings extraordinary (shoutout Premiere Party Entertainment) and he also loves to ride bikes in his free time.

There is tons of entertaining topics in this show. Too many to list, but the Road Biker vs. MountainBiker bit may be the best.

Guy On Bike

 

This week, Kris is joined by Rich Moore, better known on the interwebs as Semi Sendy.

Semi Sendy exists “share the stoke on all things mountain biking” according to its own description on YouTube, and Rich’s interwoven narratives combined with his eye for getting the perfect shot do exactly that.

Semi Sendy perfectly combines Rich’s love of filmmaking with his love of mountain biking – allowing the rest of us to come along for the ride.
