The clinic is a series of skills and training sessions to get you on your bike with other women to learn and practice drills, group riding (drafting/ pacelines), introduce you to racing in a beginner friendly format, and highlight the diversity of cycling as well as what the local Victoria community has to offer. Ultimately we want you to feel more confident and comfortable on your bike!
