Most riders getting into cycling by riding on the road; however, like anything new, certain skills are required. Road cycling is one of the easier cycling disciplines to get into, we use parting lot skills sessions to show riders to ride fast while staying in control. The parking lot sessions challenge riders to test the limits of their bike and will form the base to build on for the rest of the summer. They beginner sessions are targeted for youth 8 - 14 years old. Older and more skilled riders use the parking lot as a starting point for their on road sessions. Skills sessions typically are on Monday evenings.
In May/June when the riders have learned the skills require to ride on the open rode, riders meet at Sir John A MacDonald HS on Erbsville road Friday evening rides using the Bamberg loop to take skills training on the road. We encourage parents who can ride to ride with the youth.
