Class Description: Did you know that overcoming wind resistance contributes up to 40% of the energy used in cycling? Would you like to share the burden and get somewhere a little faster? This three-hour clinic will teach you how to maximize efficiency, minimize risk, and generally feel more comfortable riding in close proximity to others - one hour of parking lot drills, followed by one hour of classroom/walk-through, then one hour of on-bike instruction while riding in single-file groups.

Registration required, limited to 20 riders. Please register by September 14 at 5 pm. Please note that there is a $10.00 deposit per person for this clinic. You will receive a refund of your deposit if you cancel with 72 hours notice (by 9:00 am on September 13) or upon completion of the clinic.

What to bring to class Road bike, flat-soled shoes in addition to cycling shoes. No aero bars or panniers, please.

Ride Leader Training Program - this class satisfies one of the requirements to complete the SRCC Ride Leader Training Program.

This clinic is the introductory class of a two-part group riding series offered by the SRCC and focuses on the basic concepts and skills of group riding. The second (#2) class offers more ride time to further practice the same concepts and skills. The two-part series will be taught once in the Spring for A-B riders, then again in the Fall for BC and above riders. Classes can also be scheduled on a request basis for groups of 5-10.

Wait List:  When the registration limit of 20 is reached, additional members may still sign up on the wait list. As members cancel their registration, the person at the top of the wait list will be moved to the active list and notified.
