July 20-22 we had 19 people involved in Pedalfest. We had a large down hill group lead by guest coaches, retired Red Bull Racer Brian Bartlett of Left Side Industries and Jason Lalla of Next Step Prosthetics. Together they were all able to make successful runs down the beginner downhill trail at Mount Snow.
There was a small group that worked on basic bike handling skills that was able to tour the bottom of the mountain area and complete several laps of the practice pump track.
Chris Kreidl from Unior Bike Tools USA hosted a home mechanics clinic after lunch. Saturday night, ASMS along with Mount Snow, hosted a community "Film at the Barn" showing of Teton Gravity Research "unReal: unREALize Your Potential" the mountain bike a experience. Even though it was cold, the community came out to support.
Special thanks goes out to Mount Snow and Karl, Nick and Josh from Mount Snow Sports in the Grand Summit Hotel, did an awesome job setting us up with bikes and protective gear! If you need a tune on your bike or something just isn't sounding right on it, take it to them! They do a top notch job!
Many thanks to all those who were involved in making this the first summer program for ASMS! We can't wait to do it again next year!

August not only brought more showers of rain to Southern Vermont but also showers of smiles as Teen Weekend went off without a hitch! Six teens from around New England came together for a long weekend full of incredible adventure. Despite the damp conditions, these teens tested their comfort zones in hiking, whitewater rafting, the Bromely Adventure Center, and wrapped it all up with an exciting outing to the Deerfield Valley Farmer's Day Fair Demolition Derby. The rain even cooperated long enough to catch some of the Perseid meteor shower! Many thanks to Zoar Outdoor, Bromley, Mount Snow Resort, the Leif family, U-Save Van Rental-Keene, and Terry Weaber, NP for making this weekend a blast!
