Women’s Beginning Racing Skills Clinic

Register Now

June 13, 8AM to noon at Wheel & Sprocket – Fox Point

Join us Saturday, June 13th for a “ready to race” clinic for women cyclists at Wheel & Sprocket – Fox Point. If you’ve been looking for that final confidence-booster to push you onto the start line, this is for you. Register here (don’t be put off by the “race” language on the registration page).

This is not a beginner clinic. We’ll start with a quick review of basic skills:

  • efficient pedaling technique
  • correct body positioning and balance on the bike
  • braking, shifting and gear selection

and then move on bike handling skills for pack riding:

  • moving around in the pack, drafting and paceline proficiency
  • cornering and descending techniques

and racing skills:

  • sprints, attacks and race tactics
  • training practices to increase your VO2 Max, Lactate Threshold and Sprint Speed

We’ll also discuss:

  • race-morning checklist
  • race glossary
  • race rules
  • learn what it takes to be an amateur competitive bike racer

Midwest Orthopedic Specialty Hospitals (MOSH) will have a short concussion seminar during the clinic too!

Whether you’re thinking of racing this year, or in 2016, this is the clinic for you. Or maybe you won’t join a race, but you like to ride like you will – join us too. It’s rumored that some riders will head out on a group ride after lunch.

The clinic is sponsored by Boston Store, MOSH, Tour of America’s Dairyland and Wheel & Sprocket. Please contact us with questions.
