“Master your Mojo” Skills Clinics

April 8,15, 22nd, 2020

Rollout is 6:00 pm. Sessions meet on the west side of Vancouver. Location – each week will be different (TBD)

Jump start your cycling season with our clinics, designed to help you refine and improve your cycling skills and gain confidence in group riding situations. This is a great chance to meet and ride with other like-minded, dynamic women and accelerate your learning curve to get you to that next step in your cycling ability. Learn from our WOWride domestiques who have all completed Let’s Ride and NCCP Rider Leader training, CPR and Standard First Aid.

If your goal this year is to gain confidence on your bike, pick it up a notch or ride a few fondos these clinics are for you. 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. And 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 $90 for 3 sessions

Cancellation Policy: all clinics are non refundable.
