Training your cardiovascular and strengthening muscles plays a leading role in how fast you ride and flow, but that is only part of the equation. Your skill level has a huge second role in your overall speed - not mention your fun factor! During my first race in many years that fact was reinforced, since despite my lack of bike training, my skills allowed me to finish in a decent time by passing other riders in the technical areas, rocky climbs and long descents. And I would love to share these techniques with you!
Whether you race or simply want to ride smoother and faster, this clinic will help you get there with less fatigue and a whole lot more fun. Some of these skills are what we may already know, but may not understand the significance of how they affect your speed, and when and where to apply certain techniques.
We will cover things such as where to push and where to hold back, how far ahead to look and what to look at, dismounting and remounting when necessary, gaining speed out of the turns, when to give it gas and when to soft-pedal, when to sit and when to stand and how to keep the flow!
OPTIONAL SUNDAY RIDE AND TRAINING!
For those who can stay the night and ride on Sunday there is camping nearby at Yavapai Campground (https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/251964), plus several free campsites available (ask Amy for details). Sunday's ride can be a recap of Saturday, with tips and advice as we ride along, working on our speed and flow!
