Hello everyone.  Free Instruction should always be looked at carefully. Who is teaching? What are there credentials? How much experience do they have? Why is it free? Instruction & Guiding is something that has improved dramatically in the last 20 years and it’s been exponentially improving along the way  The PMBIA is doing good work at unifying the standards of teaching and guiding, globally, with courses being offered in almost 20 countries by 2019. These courses are rapidly improving and putting better and better Instructors & Guides our in the field each year. I see this first hand as I do conduct courses for them, so I know the courses, the content and the standard to required to successfully pass and maintain certification.  There is awful advice being given to Matt’s son and I’d love to have the opportunity to help if I may be granted that opportunity one day... You get what you pay for and anything free usually has some strings attached.  I welcome any of you to come and see me at Endless Biking and I can help with just about anything, riding related. There are some great Instructors out there, some good ones and unfortunately some that are below the industry standard in terms of updated training, experience or even compliant business practices.  I’ve dedicated almost 20 years to my craft and for the overall improvement and accessibility of it, industry wide. This level of coaching is unacceptable in this day and age. You can find better and you deserve better.  One little nugget I will leave for you all to consider, is that no 2 corners are the same. These aren’t absolutes, so applying absolute theories will present limitations along the way. 😉 DB@EB
