Event Information

Updated for 2023, this 1x 4-hour skills and riding clinic is designed for competitive road cyclists who wish to learn how to ride in a group and if successful, earn a Category 4 upgrade.

Skills Include:

  • Touch tires (on grass)
  • Shoulder bump (on grass)
  • Corner with a partner
  • Follow a wheel
  • Introduction to pacelines (single, rotation, combo)
  • Stand & Pedal (introduction to sprint/climbing)

Over the day, we will tackle each skill through games, activities, and challenges. The session takes place in controlled paved and grass areas before some open-road riding in the afternoon.

Flat pedals and running shoes are strongly encouraged for the morning skill session. Let us know during registration if you wish to borrow a pair of flat pedals.

The afternoon group ride is an opportunity to practice race-specific skills, and athletes may be allowed to complete a 10-20 minute effort per their individual training needs.
