The April 2014 Skills Clinic Skills Clinic at Malibu Creek State Park, on a sunny but cool day, was made up of 25 riders. There was a small amount of water in the stream crossing this month, but we didn’t ride across because of the large number of hikers wandering back and forth. Maybe they were looking for tadpoles. So we didn’t get a chance to ride through the stream yet again. You can see the April photos in the April 2014 photo gallery.
The February 2014 Skills Clinic Skills Clinic at Malibu Creek State Park on a sunny but very cool day. The group was made up of 13 riders. As has been the case for the past year, there was no water in the stream crossing. Hopefully we’ll have some rain before next month’s class so people will get to ride across a stream. You can see the February photos in the February 2014 photo gallery.

The photos from the July 6th Skills Clinic at Malibu Creek State Park have just been posted on this website. Mark was on his own this month because both Ezra (Mark’s regular assistant and MBU volunteer) and Steve (normally reliable photographer) were out of town, so in addition to his normal teaching duties, Mark took photos when he could. It looks like there was quite a large class, about 30-35 participants, based on the first photo. You can see them all in the July 2013 photo gallery.
