I believe that creating a fun, non-competitive but socially-stimulating experience is key to improving cycling skills. A friendly group environment that stimulates various abilities, progresses in a logical manner and reduces the risk of injury.  At my basic cycling skills clinics, I hope to bring riders of various interests together, using flat pedals and regular shoes, to improve basic to advanced cycling techniques through a mix of stimulating courses and games in preparation for your upcoming events. These skill progressions and games come directly from my experience working with cyclists of all ages and abilities since 2009.
