Do you want to improve your cycling skills? Have you entered the Hilly but haven’t ridden a bike in years? Do you want to learn how to ride more efficiently and save energy? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then this session is for you.

Cycling Skills specific sessions working on:

  • Group riding – Position, Hand signals, etiquette etc
  • Cornering – leaning, counter steering, steering
  • Pedalling technique – cadence one leg drills
  • Gear selection
  • Drinking while riding – picking things up while riding, taking a bottle and replacing it etc.
  • Transitions – Mount and dismount

This session is open to Adult and Junior members and non members who have entered the Hathersage Hilly in 2019

Please bring your road bike (not a TT bike) and a helmet. We will be working on group cycling so British Triathlon require traditional drop bars (rather than extended aerobars) for use in group riding situations.

Please also bring a pair of trainers for the sessions involving transition skills in the later weeks.
