Liv Presents: An Introduction to Mountain Biking
Off-road Liv Ambassador, Alyssa Podesta, hosted her first interactive Liv event, ‘An Introduction to Mountain Biking’ last week where she covered everything you need to know about getting into mountain biking. Some of the topics Alyssa covered were full suspension vs hardtail, buying your first mountain bike, essential riding gear, before hitting the trails, the do’s and don’t’s of mountain biking, where to ride and how to find people to ride with.
The event took place at Giant Store Bristol and was the first Liv Presents event that they have hosted at their store.
‘The presentation itself was simple and effective. Alyssa covered a lot of ground and was very clear and concise.’ – Colleen, Giant Store Bristol
‘All attendees seemed very enthused and it was a very positive and relaxed atmosphere.’ – Adam, Giant Store Bristol
Alyssa is keen to get more young girls and women to join her on the trails and become a role model to women who are looking to start mountain biking, but don’t know where to start. Alyssa will be hosting ride outs and events at Giant Swansea and Giant Bristol in 2018.
‘I was pretty nervous but then I felt okay as soon as I started talking. I really enjoyed it! The girls that turned up were so lovely and the staff at the store were absolutely amazing!’
Alyssa’s next event will be at Giant Store Swansea. Please watch this space for more information!
