Training - Bike
GGTC bike skills clinic hosted by local cycling coach and professional cyclist, Julia Violich.
Registration required. Clinic is limited to 20 cyclists.
This clinic will be focused on developing skills associated with climbing and descending and is open to all levels of cycling abilities. Newer and less experienced riders are highly encouraged to join, however some advanced technique will also be covered so the clinic is fit for all. We will be focusing on improving your comfort and skills levels associated with many aspects of climbing and descending.
The day will start with a pre-ride briefing covering:
Main topics (climbing, descending, cornering, etc),
Areas to focus on during the ride (body position, pedal stroke, gearing, steering, etc)
After the pre-ride discussion the group will start riding. While riding Julia will be providing all participants feedback and tips on how to improve their form and body position.There will also be a number of breaks to re-group and discuss what was learned as well as what to expect in the upcoming portion of the ride.
Expect the distance cover about 15-20 miles, this is not designed to be a "training ride" but a "learning experience." Clinic should last 2.5-3 hours.
