Bike Skills 101 -- Fundamental Bike Handling Skills sponsored by BicycleLawyer.com

 

This 4-hour co-ed clinic is the foundation of everything else you’ll learn on the bike. This is the clinic where we teach the old dogs new tricks and the newbies the fundamentals. You’ll learn about balance and weight distribution and how that affects your ability to ride your bike safely and confidently. We’ll learn skills like riding with no hands, emergency stops, and how to look behind you while holding your line, how to steer, and counter-steer. After just four hours, we guarantee you’ll be a better bike handler and have much more fun on the bike.  PLEASE NOTE:  Bike Skills 101 is the pre-requisite for all other Bike Skills road clinic modules.


This is an outside, on-the-bike clinic.  You will need to provide your own bike, helmet, and cycling clothes.

 

Please note, this clinic is not part of the regular Velo Girls club activities.  There is a registration fee for this clinic.  We are not accepting payment via meetup.  We have posted this event on Meetup for informational purposes only.  You may RSVP on the meetup, but only those who have registered online @ http://savvybike.eventbrite.com will receive detailed confirmation information.

    Sorry I didn't realize about the fee and that is a bit too much for me at the moment. Maybe soon. Thanks!

      Hi there! Bike Skills 101 is a fundamentals clinic and appropriate for ALL riders from beginner through racer. The drills are completed in a parking lot/business park so there's no worry of holding anyone up.
