Coaching Myth #5:
My partner can teach me
I'm sure things will be just peachy around the house after your first ride together. We all love it when our partner tells us what to do. .
Unless you are in the fraction of one percent of couples who can teach and learn a skill from each other, this will NOT end well. You will NOT be laughing in the sun like we are in the picture. .
What is more likely is that one (or both) of you will become very frustrated and at about the half way point in the ride, at least one of the following will occur:
b) heated verbal exchange
c) one rider will drop the other and keep going
d) all of the above .
Needless to say, it will be a quiet ride home from the trailhead. 🚵♀️🚵🤐
Not only will we teach you to ride, we might actually save your relationship! ❤️ .
Your partner may have been riding for years, but do they know how to properly teach you? Do they really understand what it is they're doing and how they do it on the bike?
Let your partner go riding with their friends and then you can impress them later with your new-found skills. .
You may actually be able to teach them something.
No. Wait. Now you go riding with your crew and send your partner to see us. 💥🚲💨💥
