    Group Track Training Ideas

    Iím starting a weekly track training group for women new or who are returning to the track.

    Any suggestions of things I could do to help them:

    Learn basic track skills
    • Get track fit
    • Build confidence; and
    • Have some fun!


    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    I think track safety should be at the top of that list. Rider awareness of where other are and such. Is this a clinic for skills training and basics? It's hard to host a clinic when riders range from completely new to seasoned riders.

    -Get comfortable on the bike
    -Get comfortable on the track
    After some off bike instruction, an open easy passed "free" ride could get this accomplished.

    -Get comfortable riding close
    A two wide paceline is a good way to get this accomplished, but you may have to ease them in.
