Bicycle Skills Clinic with Get Rad Racing
Want to become a more confident rider? Want to talk about racing road, criterium and more with experienced local racers? Join the members of Get Rad Racing a free skills clinic on Monday March 4th at 5pm. During this clinic Get Rad Racing will cover the following skills and topics: 1. Figure 8 Turns: a. In a standard parking space, try to complete a figure 8 within the lines. b. Repeat for a minute or so, and then change directions and repeat 2. K-Turns: a. This drill is more of a confidence builder than an actual skill you might use on the road. b. At a slow speed, ride parallel to a wall/curb. c. With the wall/ curb on your left, turn directly into the wall/curb so your front wheel hits it at a 90 degree angle. d. Allow the wheel to bounce back off the wall/curb a few inches. Turn the wheel to the right and continue riding parallel to the wall/curb. Do this several times along the length of the wall. 3. Hops a. Ride along a painted line hop your front wheel over the line back and forth 10 times b. Repeat with the rear tire c. Repeat with both tires 4. Contact: a. In the grass and at a slow speed, ride side-by-side with another person and lean into each other with shoulders while continuing to pedal b. You can play around with this, bumping, elbows out, leaning harder into the person, etc… Afterwards, we will meet back up at The Velo Cafe for post-clinic beers Group riding etiquette and safe riding habits will be practiced. We don't want to discourage folks from joining but we do want to make sure you have a positive experience. Therefore, we may inspect riders and their equipment which may result in recommending a different event if our rider leaders determine a potentially poor fit for the specific ride. Again, this isn't a personal judgement but about safety and collective enjoyment. #districthardware #dcvelocafe #washingtondc #love #dc #wharfdc #capitolhill #navyyarddc #swdc
