Road Biking 101

This one day clinic is designed for women new to road biking, but many women who have been biking for a while tell us they’ve learned plenty as well.  We know that for the beginner triathlete who may not have been on a bike at all for years, getting out there on skinny tires in traffic can be daunting.

This clinic is designed to get participants comfortable with their bike, riding on roads, and simple bike maintenance.  Here are some of the items we’ll cover:

 

  • Review of road bike components
  • Simple but essential bike maintenance
  • Hands on experience changing a front AND rear tire
  • How to use gears efficiently
  • How to negotiate downhills or winding courses
  • Climbing skills
  • Efficient pedaling technique
  • Road riding safety and riding in a group

2014 schedule for Road Biking 101 is coming soon.
