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.
