The clinic has two parts, as follows.

2) On the bike instruction, each session will last 3-4 hours, depending on how many students, general skill levels, etc. You will need to bring your bike in working order, a helmet (required), and any water/snacks you might need. Also, dress for the weather. Most of the session will take place in a parking lot, where we will learn and practice skills and techniques. We will then take a group ride on local streets where you can practice the skills and apply the knowledge you have just learned in real life situations. We will end with you filling out a feedback form and the instructor will fill our a road test score sheet (yes, a report card).
