    Proposed dates for an ODSC Spring training Day:

    EDIT May 23 IS NOW THE SET DATE

    These are dates that Steve has currently available.

    This has traditionally been a members event and very good value. It serves several purposes; helps folks develop skills and gets people out meeting other members face to face. I still keep in touch with members I met on my very first club ride almost 3 years ago.

    More details to follow.......

    Respond here ASAP for date preferences. We'll firm up a date soon.

    EDIT:
    It'll be the same price as last year.
    $50.00 with lunch included, BYOBike.
    Trailtours has well equipped facilities for training and can also deal with many mechanical or medical issues that may happen.
    Minimum of 6 people and max of 40.

    May works. The earlier the better.

    I'll be signing up myself and my 14y/o.

    I take it there will be different instruction for different skill levels?

    It will likely depend on the size of the class and age composition. I'm not sure how Steve will set it up.

    Any day in May is good for me, although because I'm a total noob I'd have to find out if I could catch a ride with someone who is passing by Mississauga...I'd be happy to pay for gas and lunch, or whatever is sporting.

    cheers, and looking forward to the spring, Trevi

    many of us will be passing Mississauga, you should have no problem finding a carpool to tag up with.

    What is spring training? Is it a MX track, or wooded area or both? Is there Jumps?...

    EDIT ... never mind I did a search and got some info from previous Threads.

    June 20 is the only day that looks like I'd be able to go. If it goes this day, I'd most likely bring my 7 yr old along if that's ok. He is just starting to ride single track with me.

    I should clarify:

    Once the date is settled on later this week, all signups etc. will be handled thru Trailtours just like last year.
    Sign up with a credit card to secure your spot.
    Show up on the date with your bike and gear.
    Have fun.

    Saturday May 23rd is the Date!

    Email from Steve:
    Please sign up directly with Steve using your credit card to secure your spot, same as last fall. You can use the contact info above.

    Proper training is worth 100X the cost.
