There will be 3 parts to the session: side by side group ride practice & basic bike skills in the large lot and park roads, pace line skills work on park roads (or around the Island for experienced riders) and a 45 minute race simulation on a short circuit course. Experienced racers will help coach & mentor newer riders and those with less experience. Groups will be determined that day. More experienced riders can do fast paceline laps of the Island to get more miles in. Races should start at 12:00 for B group and 12:30 for A group.
Lot 4 is off the 1st right after your enter the park, by the sledding hill
Marshals can still do the skills & paceline parts of the day.
Some of the skills to be worked on
Cornering. (quick primer on that).
Lifting the front and back wheel over an obstacle.
No handed riding..
how to safely eat & drink in a group, ie practicing grabbing & replacing bottles.
side by side riding, possibly 3 across and 3 deep, with different people taking turns in the middle.
basic paceline work; ie 1 minute pulls at a moderate speed, 30 seconds at a faster speed, working up to rotating pacelines with more advanced riders. explaining that if you want to go faster, gradually bring the speed up when you are on the front, etc
possibly bumping drills on grass if not too wet.
