Come dressed in full cycling kit. We will leave directly from classroom to first set of drills. Wear street shoes to classroom session, but have cycling shoes close by.
Pack a lunch and snacks and water. We will stop for approximately 30-45 minutes for lunch.
Tune your bike up the week before! Brakes, drivetrain, etc. Make sure tires are aired up before you arrive. No dirty bikes please.
Read through the material before you arrive!!! You will be emailed attachments that will help you! READ them.
Purchase a USA Cycling License online and read through basic rulebook. You will register as a Category 5. or purchase your 1 day temporary USAC license at the clinic for $10.00
Required safety gear:
Highly suggested and recommended:
- Water Bottle & Water
- Bring your training wheels for drills. You can put your racing wheels on for both the practice race and actual race. It will be a bummer if you fall over in the grass during bumping drills and break your $3000 wheels.
- Put a energy bar or gel in your back pocket to munch on during the morning drills if needed.
Tools and spares:
- Pump or Co2 cartridges
- spare tubes
- tire irons
