Cornering Clinic

McDowell Mountain Regional Park

$90.00

There is free speed out on the trails that you are giving up! This clinic will focus on cornering, both slower switchback skills and faster cornering skills. Learn to corner better, and you'll flow through the trail faster. Topics covered will include: • Bike / body separation. Crucial to efficient cornering! • Vision. Where should I be looking? Even more crucial to efficient cornering! • Counterbalancing. If I lean the bike over, how do I stay on it? • Braking techniques. Braking efficiently in corners means you spend less time slowing down, making you faster. • Feet placement. Should my foot be up, down, forward, back? Who should attend: This clinic is for the intermediate level rider and above. Ideally, you ride on a somewhat regular basis, are fairly comfortable with your bike and don't mind being challenged. If you're not sure, please don't hesitate to ask. This might seem obvious, but just in case…items to consider: • Helmet (mandatory) • Gloves (mandatory) • Eye protection / sunglasses • Cycling specific jersey / shorts • Elbow / knee pads • Adequate water supply via bottles or hydration pack • Food / energy bar • Quick release seat post clamp or adjustable height seat post • Sunscreen • Spare tube A note on pedals / shoes: We’ll be getting on and off the bike quite a bit and not going for any particularly long rides. If you have platform pedals, or “flats” that you can temporarily change to, it might be something to consider. It just takes a variable out of the equation when learning new skills versus using “clip-in” style shoes/pedals. If you don’t have flats, or prefer to learn with the setup that your most comfortable with, that’s fine too. I have a couple extra pairs of flat pedals if you would like to borrow them, just let me know. COVID Operating Plan: You may review the plan here. When you sign the waiver, you also accept this plan: http://www.pedaltherapy.com/covid-19-plan/ 3 students minimum for the session to take place! Other questions? Check out the FAQ at http://www.pedaltherapy.com/faq/ or send an email directly to [masked] Vets and law enforcement (active and retired)! Thank you for your service.
