A bit of light reading for those dark winter nights.

Half way through it - thanks for the link

It's too hot to go riding today - expecting 40 celsius - must be 38 at least now...

It's been on our news, expecting some killer temps down under I read. Stay safe - and cool.

I read half this morning, and just completed it this evening... Excellently written piece, with superb coaching content.

I'm a technical training consultant by trade, having spent almost the last 20 years teaching different technical disciplines across many countries and cultures. I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style of this document, It:
  • Explains concepts in plain and simple English, in a very graphical way (i.e. easy to imagine or 'visualise' in one's mind's eye.)
  • is very engaging and accessible (easily understood); not unnecessarily wordy, yet quite sufficiently detailed.
  • Is logically well structured, with a keen focus on the salient learning points, whilst identifying common mistakes in order to re-enforce those learning points.
  • Treats concepts with an open mind, without being judgemental; recognising that there may be opposing opinions regarding some topics...


Absolutely top marks!!!

I only wish I'd been given this quality of coaching when I initially learned to ride!

Thank you.

I just finished reading the article. Good info and things I need to practice.
Years ago I had a subscription to Consumer News and learned a lot from their articles.
Thanks,
Dave
