Meet at The Bicycle Outfitter at 8 am for a 8:15 roll out.
Duration of the class is expected to be 3-4 hours, depending on conditions. Please plan accordingly.
This women only class covers the techniques you need for effective climbing and fun, safe descending.
Skills that will be covered:
- Cornering Techniques: Apex, late apex, early apex turning
- Hip steering and “disconnecting” bike and rider
- Braking Techniques: Before corner, mid corner course corrections
- Body position for efficient climbing and safe descending

This advanced class requires that you be fully proficient in the skills taught in the foundational class (emergency stops, avoidance, effective braking, etc). If not, we strongly recommend that you complete the Cycling Fundamentals class before taking this course.
