Hone your group riding skills with a 3-week skills clinic in May.

Aimed at members already doing the Tripleshot group rides, especially newer members. Learn and hone the skills to enjoy group rides, and keep them safe. This intro course covers basic skills for riding with others, in three sessions:

1. Getting Close (defensive contact, emergency braking, etc.)
2. Drafting and Pace Lines
3. Cornering

Coached by Brenna Pauly, TS women’s clinic and youth team coach, and Matt Patriquin, TS youth team coach.
Cost is $50, with $30 rebate for riders who complete all three sessions.
Minimum number of riders is 6 for the clinic to run, maximum 18.

Registration requires payment to hold a place. Registration is non-refundable, but you can sell it to someone else if you can, if your plans change. ... ucts_id=70

Hi All,

I certainly hope that there are not too many members who have signed up for this. Most you you know that I should really learn some skills and individualized attention would be best for me. Having said that, all of you who think that you already have all the skills you need may want to sign up for the clinic so that you can show off by helping Brenna and Matt teach me a skill or two. I would like to focus on "how to avoid crashing" because at my age.....

Fingers crossed that I will have the full attention of many teachers tomorrow and for the following two weeks.
