Tripleshot Women’s Cycling Clinics are run by women, for women, in Victoria, BC. They are for women who are interested in learning the skills and techniques needed for group riding and for those who are already comfortably riding in groups but who want to become even faster and more skillful.
Now in our 8th year, Tripleshot Women’s Cycling Clinic is holding all levels of the clinic simultaneously. Register early for the early-bird special price!
April 9 – May 28
8 Tuesday nights, 6 – 7:30pm
The first session, held at St. Patrick’s School gymnasium, is off-bike and will focus on basic bike maintenance. Seven on-the-bike skills sessions follow, held at various locations around the city from Beacon Hill Park to longer groups rides to be determined by the coaches. The clinic will run rain or shine; only hurricane-like winds will stop us. No make-up sessions.
During registration, you will answer a set of questions about your riding skills and comfort. We will use these answers to help us determine which group to put you in, and we will adjust groups as necessary up to the end of the first on-the-bike session. Some of the groups provide a series of skills and training sessions to get you more confident and comfortable on your bike and to help you learn skills needed to go on group rides. Other groups will work from the fundamental skills and teach techniques to make you smarter cyclists, more efficient and faster to enable you to join more challenging group rides.
Below are some skills that we will introduce and things we will practice, depending on which group you are in:
- bike handling
- safety drills
- group riding techniques (drafting and pacelines)
- how to ride hills better (climbing and descending)
- basic bike maintenance
- group rides
- racing techniques
- sprints and race tactics
- time trial practice.
For all levels, road bikes or cyclocross bikes are required. Unfortunately, we are not able to allow e-bikes in the clinic.
Come meet like-minded women, improve your riding and get more comfortable riding in groups and have fun!
The final Tuesday is a wrap-up cycling event for all levels of the clinic, followed by a social with food and beverages. This event is sponsored by Broad Street Cycles and will begin and end at the bike shop. (www.broadstcycles.ca)
