Whether you ride with a club or with friends, whether you ride sportives or races, the ability to ride confidently in close proximity to others will enhance your cycling. This coached session will develop your group cycling skills, building your skills as your confidence grows.
- Following a rider closely (holding a wheel)
- Changing positions in a group riding single file
- Riding two-abreast in a tight bunch
- Cornering in a group
- Moving confidently through and within a group
- Riding in a ‘chain-gang’
All sessions are run by Level 2 Road Coach, Diana Farrell.
Group Riding Skills runs as a half day sessions with a short break half way through.
All sessions are run at the Fife Cycle Park in Lochgelly.
Each session will consist of a number of structured exercises. There will be discussions between exercises and some time off the bikes, but I aim for riders to spend the vast majority of the session on their bikes. Whole group and individual feedback will be given to participants.
There will be a maximum of eighteen riders per session. Sessions may be involve private clients joining a club session to ensure that group size is appropriate to delivering a realistic group riding experience.
Riders may also choose to book onto a guided ride after the coached session in order to put their skills into practise on the open roads.
Who Are The Sessions For?
This coaching is ideal for cyclists who lack experience or confidence riding in a group and those who would like to develop their group cycling skills in a traffic-free environment. By the end of the session, riders will feel more confident to ride in a close group situation whether this be for group rides, sportives, chain gang training, racing or just to develop their bike handling.
Road bikes are recommended – It may be possible to hire a bike from the Fife Cycle Park for the session (please contact the Fife Cycle Park direct to discuss this).
