Today we speak with Rich Drew. Rich has his own YouTube channel dedicated to all aspects of mountain biking and he does this in conjunction with "The Ride Series" MTB Skills Clinics.
This interview was an absolute blast and we learned a lot about Rich and his philosophy on learning to ride your bike and improving your skills. Just like he does on his youtube channel, he breaks down every topic in clear and concise details. We reference the sport and mental aspects relative to your life outside cycling from a social, but also professional perspective. Listen to the end when Rich shares his goals for the channel and has some great advise to young mountain-bikers and how to leverage social media to your advantage.
We talk about how he started with BMX racing which led into XC racing on the mountain bike and later on Enduro racing. We have an in depth conversation about nutrition, developing your mountain bike skills, bike technology and material and much more.
Food for thought! Enjoy the Ride!

I'm a 42 year old father of an amazing young man and husband to an incredible woman. My journey on bikes started at age five when I began racing BMX in souther California. Following in the footsteps of my big bro Rob, the inevitable transition to dirt bikes took place and opened up an amazing world of experiences.
The one constant in my life has been two wheels. I'm fortunate enough to have been in MANY situations on bikes and my goal is bring that experience to you. I'm a former Factory Pivot rider and spent the summer of 2019 competing for a championship in the Big Mountain Enduro Masters class.
I hope to build this channel to be advocate for bike riders everywhere. In conjunction with The Ride Series MTB Skills Clinics, providing insight on anything and everything bike related is what I aim to do.
