    Bike Handling Drills for all Rider Levels

    Registration Open - 30 students maximum

    Instructors: 
    Steve Kroeck, Jessie Kroeck, Richard Anderson,
    Darrin Jenkins

    This clinic is designed to explore the bike/rider interface and develop options, control, and fluidity of movement on the bike. Some of the techniques we’ll practice simply expand perception and are not meant for everyday riding situations. Others will focus on emergency situations that require reflex-level reactions.

    The central theme is flexibility on the bike: developing the ability to shift weight and focus in ways that enhance control using all five points of contact with the bike. The drills will be taught in progressive fashion and performed in a large parking lot at low speed. Class length will be 2-3 hours depending on ability levels and interest.

    This will be a good opportunity for riders of mixed ability to learn from and practice with each other. Fun, team building, and interaction will be emphasized. Though progressive, a majority of drills are easily performed by less skilled riders and none are mandatory, so watching is encouraged.

    What to bring: road bike (less aero bars, panniers, etc), flat-sole shoes, helmet.

    Group Riding Clinic #1 for A & B Riders


    Registration Open - 20 students maximum


    Instructors: 
    Steve Kroeck, Richard Anderson, & Darrin Jenkins 

    Location: parking lot next to Thunderbolt Way
    off Northpoint Parkway, Santa Rosa

     
    Please note - no restroom facilities are available at this location.

    Did you know that overcoming wind resistance contributes up to 40% of the energy used in cycling? Would you like to share the burden and get somewhere a little faster? This three-hour clinic will teach you how to maximize efficiency, minimize risk, and generally feel more comfortable riding in close proximity to others - one hour of parking lot drills (please bring flat sole shoes), followed by one hour of classroom/walk-through, then one hour of on-bike instruction while riding in single-file groups.

    Ride Leader Training Program - this class satisfies one of the requirements to complete the SRCC Ride Leader Training Program.

    It's the introductory class of a two-part group riding series offered by the SRCC and focuses on the basic concepts and skills of group riding. The second (#2) class offers more ride time to further practice the same concepts and skills. The two-part series will be taught once in the Spring for A-B riders, then again in the Fall for BC and above riders. Classes can also be scheduled on a request basis for groups of 5-10.


    Registration required, limited to 20 riders. Please register by March 10, 2017, 5:00 PM. 

    Wait List:  When the registration limit of 20 is reached, additional members may still sign up on the wait list.  As members cancel their registration, the person at the top of the wait list will be moved to the active list and notified.

    Comments from previous participants:

    "Great class. The instructors were very helpful and encouraging. The location was good because it gave of plenty of space to practice each skill with our partner." 

    "I thought this was well organized and well presented. The combination of "lecture", demonstration and on bike practice is effective."

    "Great! Almost nothing to improve on. They gave great demos , then had us do same. Nice way to learn" 

    "The instructors were very knowledgeable, communicated well and clearly cared about helping each participant improve his/her skills."
