Bike Skills 101 – Fundamental Bike Handling

This 4-hour clinic is the foundation of everything else you’ll learn on the bike.  This is the clinic where we teach the old dogs new tricks and the newbies the fundamentals.  You’ll learn about balance and weight distribution and how that affects your ability to ride your bike safely and confidently.  We’ll learn skills like riding with no hands, emergency stops, and how to look behind you while holding your line, how to steer, and counter-steer.  After just four hours, we guarantee you’ll be a better bike handler and have much more fun on the bike.   This clinic is a pre-requisite for all other Bike Skills road cycling clinics.

  1. Bike Skills 101A - April 2nd Location: San Ramon City Center Bishop Ranch, North Parking Lot
  2. Bike Skills 101B - June 11th Location:
Space is limited to 24 people for the 101 classes

Bike Skills 201 – Climbing + Descending

Bike Skills 201 is a continuation of what you’ve learned in Bike Skills 101.  What goes up must come down, right?  In this 4-hour clinic, we’ll teach you how to climb like a pro:  seated climbs, standing climbs, short climbs, steep climbs, extended climbs.  And then, we’ll teach you how to come back down again, focusing on a fast straight descent, and then a technical switchbacky descent.  Pre-requisite: Bike Skills 101.

  1. Bike Skills 201A - May 7th
  2. Bike Skills 201B - July 9th

Space is limited to 8 people for 201.  So register as asap.
