Road Skills & Bike Handling Clinic: NO-HANDS bunny-hopping on GRAVEL while TURNING

  • Spanish Bank West Parking Lot B (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Hop the curb!
Rail the turn!
Ride the gravel!
Nail the NO-HANDS!

Handle that bike like the proper dream that it is, regardless of what the road throws at you - or, for that matter, other cyclists, be they passing you closely, or in your group and riding erratically. Learn to stay safe, avoid interference with those around you and keep it upright in variable conditions, situations of sudden obstacle or other unpredictable surprises that may arise.

We'll work through some assessment drills to gauge comfort levels and current capabilities then come up with focused tasks for everyone to work where they're at.

Ok Ok yes we're joking with the focus of today's session - but also not really! We'll review everything we worked on, do a little bit of all the things, and take requests from the crowd on what skills we should hone in on for further refinement. Then we'll try mixing these skill disciplines a little - just maybe not all at once :)

Road Skills & Bike Handling Clinic: safe & FAST descending, stopping, turning and some NO-HANDS shenanigans,

Hop the curb!
Rail the turn!
Ride the gravel!
Nail the NO-HANDS!

Handle that bike like the proper dream that it is, regardless of what the road throws at you - or, for that matter, other cyclists, be they passing you closely, or in your group and riding erratically. Learn to stay safe, avoid interference with those around you and keep it upright in variable conditions, situations of sudden obstacle or other unpredictable surprises that may arise.

We'll work through some assessment drills to gauge comfort levels and current capabilities then come up with focused tasks for everyone to work where they're at.
This week we'll dig deep into the NO-HANDS SHENANIGANS, going all out fast downhill, and how to quickly brake with control on both smooth and unstable surfaces - yes, that means skidding to a stop and yes, that means more gravel!

Time permitting we'll go into a quick refresher and practice on bunny hops - go higher, with confidence!

Road Skills & Bike Handling Clinic: turning tight, turning fast, more bunny hops

Hop the curb!
Rail the turn!

This week we'll tackle the slow tight turn, the fast wider turn, some of which will be on gravel to keep pushing those skills, and we'll further our bunny hops (go higher!).

If we have any time we'll get a start on some no-hands shenanigans ;)

perhaps maybe you could take better care of it than you do. but you *want* to take better care of it, right? you know that you could do better, and it, in return would reciprocate by carrying your worldly body safely to the far reaches of your biosphere, or let's be honest, sometimes just over to the neighbourhood ice cream parlour, but THAT IS STILL IMPORTANT!
