Track Cycling Clinics & Training! http://www.northbrookcyclecommittee.org/track-cycling-clinics-training/ http://www.northbrookcyclecommittee.org/track-cycling-clinics-training/#comments Fri, 02 May 2014 17:42:43 +0000 http://www.northbrookcyclecommittee.org/?p=4668 464525_10100162349107957_1432506940_o

 

Despite being rained out TWICE this week, we are excited to introduce our two May clinics!

For ladies interested in trying out track cycling, Category 2 track racer and Masters Track Nationals medalist Francine Haas is bringing the Women’s Track Cycling Clinic to Northbrook Saturday, May 3rd. Registration opens at 8am and the clinic will begin at 9am (see flyer for costs). We will have refreshments! We welcome all skill levels and have bikes for loan. This is the perfect place to put to bed any sense of intimidation, as Francine will cover the track bicycle, velodrome basics, group riding skills, mock racing, and more! For more information, check out the flyer here.

We are also introducing the Fundamental Track Cycling Clinic on Saturday, May 10 for all skill levels! Led by Category 2 track racer and Masters Track Nationals medalist Kevin Perez, this clinic will provide track cycling etiquette and safety, racing skills, and elite training exercises. For those Category 5 riders looking to upgrade to Category 4, this clinic will also offset 75% of required training and racing needed for an upgrade. Category 5 riders who safely and successfully complete this clinic will only have to complete 1 more training night and 1 race night for their upgrade to Category 4. Registration will open at 8am and the clinic will begin at 9am. Please see the flyer for more details and costs.

We would like to extend a thank you to the Illinois Cycling Association for providing a grant to offset the costs of these clinics! Visit their calendar to see all the other races and clinics they support!

Also, thank you to Catherine Watkins for her photography skills at our clinics, including the above photo!
