Level 1 clinics will focus on basic group cycling fundamentals. Level 2 clinics will focus on a the progression of those basic bike handling and group cycling skills moving to more advance skills and techniques. If your goal this year is to pick it up a notch or ride a few fondos Level 2 is for you. Please note: beginners must finish Level 1 before advancing to Level 2. All clinics are open to members and non-members.
Session 1: Bike Handling
We will start the session on grass so you can get comfortable controlling your bike while riding closely with others. Includes: Clipping in and out, riding with one hand, riding in a straight line, braking and emergency stopping, gear sifting, riding slowly, skidding or falling, and beginner paceline techniques. Grass stains included in the price.
Session 2: Climbing and Descending
Are hills your mental nemesis? Learn to bite them back and climb with ease with proper form, technique, breathing and other climbing strategies. What goes up must come down. Improve your confidence, balance and efficiency while enjoying those long, winding descends.
Session 3: Pacelines and Cornering
Gain confidence and trust while learning savvy techniques to ride safer and more efficiently in group situations. Includes: riding safely in single and double pacelines, rotating pacelines, hand signalling and communication, closing the gap, soft pedalling, “braking” techniques and other micro adjustments to improve your riding efficiency. You’ll also learn how to enter and ride through corners efficiently, when to brake and gear and many other cornering strategies.
Cost $60 for 3 sessions
