BIKE SKILLS CLINICS AT BELMAR PARK  

Class Description:

Hi! My name is Hollis and I am a member of "Women's Get Back in Shape" meetup.  I am offering free Bicycle Skills Clinics for this Meetup group which will be Thurs. July 24 and Thurs. July 31 at 9:00 am.  I have been trained by the Whistler based Professional Mountain Bike Instructor Program (PMBIA.org).

 To attain my full certification, I need to teach cyclists at various levels. In addition, I have a fully certified PMBI Level 1 Instructor to supervise & assist me. Using modern biking theory and adaptive progressions, our sessions can benefit anyone riding non-technical pavements to off-road single-track trails. 

So please join me Thursdays, July 24th &/or 31st at 9am for a Bike Skills Clinic. We will work on fundamental cycling skills (Body Positioning, Gears & Braking), which is essential for both road & mountain cyclists. 

 There will be plenty of riding with a lot of progression drills. We will ride around the park on suitable terrain appropriate to the participants and our skill objectives. Mileage would be around 3 to 5 miles plus mileage during progression. The fitness component will be there as different muscle groups will be utilized for proper cycling technique.

In addition, we will work on mechanical issues like, changing a flat tire on the ride. I will be bringing 2 extra tires to let people practice changing a flat tire. People can also practice on their own tires if they desire.

Duration: 

Bike Skills/Riding: Between 1.5-2 hoursTire Repair Clinic: 15-20minutes (with practice time allotted)  

What To Bring: 

Working bicycle 

Helmet 

Water & snack 

Sunscreen 

Tire Repair Kit: Patch Kit or Extra Tube & Tire Levers

So join me in an informal Bike Skills Clinic to learn essential biking skills. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at[masked]-8935. 

When: Thursdays, July 24th & 31st at 9am 

Where: Lakewood Heritage Center Parking Lot, just south of the Belmar Library  

                Belmar Park, 801 S. Wadsworth Blvd. 

                Lakewood, CO 80226

    Thanks so much to Hollis and Arvin for your time and patience with us. I learned more than I expected and was surprised to find that I actually can change my bike tire! And I had fun in the process. Hollis, you are a very talented instructor and will go far in helping novices improve their riding skills. You and Arvis make a great team and inspire us all to stretch ourselves to greater enjoyment of the sport!

    Hi Lisa,
    The tire repair session will be at the end of the session between 15-20 minutes. We may practice longer if needed, depending on the size of the group.
    Thanks and hope you can make it :)
