Tripleshot Group Cycling Skills Clinic

Post by Lister Farrar » Tue Aug 15, 2017 9:27 pm

Tripleshot Group Cycling Skills Clinic

Tripleshot Youth Team coaches are just finished the provincial track championships, and offering a three session skills course for TS members to hone their group riding skills. Learn how to get used to others riding near you, learn to draft and pace line, and corner like a pro.

The clinic will be offered over three 1.5 hour sessions on Wednesdays: August 23, August 30 and Sept 6, from 6 a.m. - 7:30 a.m. Coaching will be provided by TS Women’s Level 2 Clinic Coach Brenna Pauly and TS Youth Coaches Bryson Bowers, Nick Friesen and Matt Patriquin.

Location: Beacon Hill Park Petting Zoo Parking lot, (first two sessions), Windsor park (3rd session.)

$55 for a 3 session course (similar to Women’s clinic price.). Members get 50% returned to them when they complete 3 session ($27.50). Supported by a Province of BC Gaming grant.

Please indicate your interest by Sunday August 20 by sending an email to competerecoaching@gmail.com so we can confirm the coaches. You can etransfer the registration fee to the same email, or bring a cheque to the first session. Refunds will be provided by etransfer unless specifically requested otherwise.

Offer open to current members. Join here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6976

I highly recommend that new riders sign up for this clinic. Even if you aren't new, per se, but perhaps still a little nervous about riding at speed in a group, then this is the clinic for you.

The skills I learned when I took it several years ago not only made me feel more confident in a group, but also saved me from crashing on at least three occasions (two involving near-misses with cars).

Ideally, I'd like to see this become a regular event that runs at least twice a year (fall and spring?).

Thanks for co-ordinating this Lister.

As of 9 a.m. Saturday, we have 5 registrants. We need a minimum of 8 to make this happen as the clinic needs enough riders to illustrate how pace lines are effective. Help us get to that magic number by sharing this information! Thanks.
