Bike Skills 101 -- Fundamental Bike Handling Skills sponsored by


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 @ will receive detailed confirmation information.

    Learned at lot and liked being able to safely apply it in the parking lot. Also liked seeing the applicability to mountain biking.

      I'm going to send you a big box of bubble wrap, Alys! Heal quickly and I can't wait to see you back on the bike. It's been way too long.
