Monday, August 31st 6:00pm : Skills Night
Monday Night Skills is a 1 hour ride where we work on Bike Handling Skills. Last week we continued to work on finessing our echelon, pace-line and cornering skills in two speed groups. We plan to do the same thing again this week with enough participants.
All members welcome, this is a great night for riders of all levels to learn or brush up on their skills. Don’t miss it! All that is required is a road bike in good working order, helmet and water bottles.
