“Master your Mojo” Skills Clinics

May 7th & 14th, 2024 

Rollout is 5:45 pm. Location – each week will meet on West side of Vancouver

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 & Pace lines

We may start the session on grass (weather dependant) so you can get comfortable controlling your bike while riding closely with others. You will gain confidence and trust while learning techniques to ride safer and efficiently in group situations. 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…. pace line techniques such as single, double and rotating pace lines, hand signalling and communication, closing the gap, soft pedalling, “braking” techniques and other micro adjustments to improve your riding efficiency. 

Session 2: Climbing, Descending and Cornering

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. You’ll also learn how to enter and ride through corners efficiently, when to brake and gear and many more cornering strategies.

 

Cost $90 for 2 sessions

Cancellation Policy: all clinics are non refundable.
