This is an opportunity to develop your skills in a welcoming, fun, collaborative environment!
Who is this for?
Riders who identify as FTW (Femme, Transgender, Women)
Off-road riders, road riders*, gravel riders, or "cyclocrossers" who want to develop their handling skills and confidence.
Riders should have previous experience riding recreationally or competitively. Beginner to elite riders welcome. Drills will be scaled up or down for each rider
*The only requirement is that you MUST have either mountain bike pedals or flat pedals and be comfortable using them. (You need to be able to put your foot down quickly when practicing skills. Cyclocross, Gravel, Road, and MTB bikes are all fine.)
Weeks 1–5: Drills emphasize balance, coordination, handling, and confidence.
Week 5-6: We will focus on group riding. Skills are applicable whenever riding with others, road or gravel. (Week 6 will likely be off-site on the road--most likely Fort Snelling.)
IMPORTANT: Class size is limited to 10 riders. This allows me to provide each athlete with sufficient attention and support to encourage growth.
Please do not attend if you are symptomatic or think you have been exposed.
Even though we are outside, we will be masked (even if you have been vaccinated).
You must pre-register (ensures contactless transaction).
Hand sanitizer provided.
Water not available in park. Bring your own drink/food.
Nearest Bathroom is Lake Minnehaha Park.
