Cycling Skills Session - Sun 16th Nov 09.30-11.00

Postby Rob Harvey » Wed Nov 05, 2008 7:41 pm

Hi,

On Sunday 16th November we will be organising a Cycling Skills Session to replace the group 1 ride. The session will take place from 09.30-11.00 outside TriCentral as the car park is deserted on a sunday. It also means we can get cups of tea if needed! I would recommend people arrive from 09.15 so we are ready to start on time. We will be finished in plenty of time for people to get to the XC race that afternoon.

The aim of the session is to improve the skills and confidence of novice riders to help you take part in the Sunday rides. The focus will be on group riding skills, but we will look at balance and coordination, cornering and braking as well.

If you are thinking of coming along can you please reply to this thread so we can plan appropriately.

Some more info about cycling skills is provided in the following activity card (ignore the stuff about coach led racing).

Thanks

I definitely want to come along. Haven't been out on a Sunday ride yet and could do with the skills training first.
Thanks

Dammit I was holding out for this.. however I've just had an operation so its not likely I'll be able to ride by next weekend..

Will it be worth me coming along to watch/listen or is it all practical skills that I'd have to participate in?

I'll definately come along. I haven't been to a sunday cycle ride yet so this looks like a good place to start.

See you there

I'd like to come. May I ask if this is possibly open to non-members? (I am supposed to be running with a friend who is a member *whispers* of another tri club)

Thanks for the great session this morning. It was really good fun and very well thought out. It was only when I sat down at home I realised that I had been riding one handed, passing a drinks bottle and "bumping into another rider" amongst other things and all without falling off. Great confidence booster.
The only thing is, I'm not very good riding just holding on with my right hand yet. The solution would be to have another session sometime soon. Any chance?

I would certainly recommend it to anyone else who is unsure on bike handling.
