Bike Skills 101 - Fundamental Bike Handling Skills
Presented by Savvy Bike, on behalf of Western Wheelers, this members-only 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.
One scheduled clinic:
Bike Skills 201 - Climbing + Descending Skills
Presented by Savvy Bike, on behalf of Western Wheelers, this members-only clinic is a continuation of what you’ve learned in Bike Skills 101. What goes up must come down, right? In this 4-hour co-ed 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.
Two scheduled clinics:
