Women’s Cycling Clinic – Our Women’s road cycling clinic is just around the corner. We’re geared up to instruct everyone from the recreational rider to the racer. We’ll cover everything from basic bike maintenance to skills that will build your confidence on the bike and increase your efficiency on the road. As a special bonus, those participating in the racing group will be instructed by Wayne Simon, a US Master’s Road National champion. The event will be held at the Highland Park High School and in case of inclement weather, the event will be held inside on the indoor track. For details or to register for the event click here
Women’s Track Clinic – If you’re even a little curious about riding a fixed gear bike or racing at the velodrome, attend this women’s only event. You’ll learn everything from what makes a track bike different from a road bike to riding on the track and even practice a few races. Don’t have a track bike? No worries, you can borrow one from Turin Bicycles or George Garner Cyclery. For details on the event or to register click here
