New for 2019! Your opportunity to attend the USA Cycling - certified Cycling Skills Clinic in any month of the year! Beginning in January our Cycling Skils Clinic will be held on the 4th Saturday of each month from 9AM to Noon. Same safe, closed location in Richardson!
Bike skills are something that we believe are learned and not inherent. Those of us who entered the world of cycling through triathlon probably learn to ride from our fellow triathletes. In doing so we miss a lot of opportunity to become proficient on our bikes, thus missing out on power and endurance to be faster and less tired.
In my opinion those high speed cornering techniques we want to have are best learned at slower speeds. The skills needed to become comfortable at high speeds are learned through recognizing your balance on the bike as you learn to drive the bike, not just steer. So we spend a lot of time going over drills to challenge our senses so that we are comfortable balancing the bike at almost any angle, speed and maneuver. Therefore, you learn how to be more efficient.

The Clinic is held in the parking lot of the Methodist Richardson Medical Center Womens Building at 1977 N Collins Blvd (@ W Campbell Road) in Richardson. It is located on the SW corner. Please be vigilant: many people miss this building tucked-away in the SW corner, next to the creek.
Wear what you would wear for a bike ride. Please be sure and bring water, a water bottle for a bike, helmet, sunscreen, etc. We will have additional water and snacks available.
We will have about 2 hours on the bike in the closed parking lot then go out "on the road" for about an hour to put our skills to the test!
