MEET YOUR COACH - SCOT PEASLEE
We are excited to invite Scot Peaslee back at Camp Ingersoll as the head coach of the CCAP Middlesex YMCA Youth Cycling team. Scot was a long time member of the YCI family where he ran mountain biking and triathlon training camps. He has coached high school mountain biking programs in the past and is an enthusiastic advocate for the sport. Throughout the program he will teach skills of steep climbs and descents, as well as the technical aspects of riding such as bike maintenance and emergency repairs. He is excited to lead our first ever program at the Middlesex YMCA and can't wait to get out on the trails.
