more information and on-line registration at http://www.velogirls.com/coaching/programs.php


GIRLS GOT SKILLS™ – June 21st & 22nd, 2008
Registration deadline June 9th

This is our corner-stone clinic, and includes 16 hours of “you” time in the company of other cycling women. This clinics is a must-do for recreational cyclists and racers alike! We cover individual bike handling skills, group riding skills, and training principles (including a time trial to determine heart rate training zones). You’ll walk away from this weekend with a renewed love for the bike and the cycling community!


NEW FOR 2008 – BIKE SKILLS MODULES!
By popular demand, we’ve taken our most popular two-day bike skills clinics and broken them down into 4-hour modules so you can focus on those skills that are most important to you. Some of these clinics are for women or men only; some are co-ed. Let us know what you think!!!

BIKE SKILLS 101 – Individual Bike Handling Skills

May 10th (Women), May 25th (Men), August 17th (Women), September 7th (Men)

This 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. 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.

BIKE SKILLS 201 – Climbing & Descending

June 8th and September 14th

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 or equivalent experience.

BIKE SKILLS 301 – Group Riding
July 5th and September 21st

Whether you’re a racer or a recreational rider, group riding skills will help you ride longer, faster, and farther. We’ll learn draft theory and basic pacelines, progressing to more complex group riding skills and introductory racing techniques. Pre-requisite: Bike Skills 101 or equivalent experience.

BIKE SKILLS 302 – Criterium & Road Racing Skills
June 14th (Men) and June 28th (Women)

This four-hour clinic will teach you all the individual bike-handling and group riding skills you'll need to race your first (or your 10th) criterium or road race. In addition to skills & drills, you'll receive expert coaching on race preparation and logistics, and an introduction to tactics. We'll finish the day with a training race followed by a de-brief. Pre-requisite: Bike Skills 101 or equivalent experience.
