Bike Handling Skills


Anybody can go fast on the flat… but how good are you at stopping suddenly? Swerving, gearing, speed bumps, cattle grids and cornering? Can you turn around a cone (or on the cycle path) without unclipping and scooting with your foot?

Come to my cycling class on the 22nd January, where you can meet other women also needing to brush up their skills, learn new ones or “get back into it” after a hiatus and get on to this class. We will meet at Hamdan Sports Centre (on the E611) at 0730am on Saturday 22nd January 2022.  This is not a beginners course, this is a class for cyclists with at least one year’s experience.

You will need:

  • A road bike or TT bike
  • Helmet, shoes (with cleats as well if you use them, but bring trainers too) and appropriate cycling gear (it will possibly be cold to start, so dress in layers)
  • The class is likely to be 3 hours long
  • Bring hydration and nutrition
  • There are facilities in the Sports Centre if you need them

During this class we will cover gearing, including gearing up hills, braking, swerving, drinking from a bottle effectively, hand signalling, hill sprints, riding over bumps and cattle grids, stopping and starting correctly, riding in a peloton (group), changing positions within a peloton, and pedalling efficiently.
