LWA 3rd Annual Cycling Skills Course, April 30

This course will be instructed by Craig Lambert, a current LWA Ride Leader and retired professional cyclist. Meet at Jaindl Elementary School, Cetronia side parking lot.

This is a class geared toward bike handling skills, this class is not just for new riders. We all think we have great abilities on the bike until we don't. There are so many things that can get us out where we play hopefully learning or improving on some skills will keep us all safer from including motorist, your buddy not paying attention to what their doing or just yourself. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
This is a FREE event for all LWA Wheelmen dues-paying club members. There is a $15 fee for all non-member attendees that includes LWA Membership for 1-year.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN:
All participants will be able to build on their current skill level while learning new ones, making you a better and safer road rider. Skills that Craig might cover include: straight line riding, lines and speeds through turns, side by side riding, braking, positioning on the bike, communication, balance and bike handling.

WHAT YOU WILL EXPERIENCE:
Be prepared for a challenging in-the-saddle, hands-on the bars, instructional day that is filled with game-based activities that allow you to practice riding concepts and demonstrate your mastery.

WHAT YOU NEED
All participants should bring their own road or trail/gravel bicycle. Some of the activities are better suited for flat pedals, or sneakers. A helmet is required. Relaxed clothing based on weather conditions - wearing full cycling kits (jersey and shorts) are not required.

Sign up on Meetup, April 30, 9am-noon.
