REGISTRATION FOR SKILLS TRAINING CLINIC

There is nothing more exhilarating than riding in a group of riders on an open road, at speed, close together!  Then suddenly something changes.  Wouldn’t it be nice if you were already prepared and knew the riders with you would act accordingly?  This class is designed to prepare you and your fellow HBC riders with proven drills for many of the situations we encounter on the road.

This is not a beginners class!  This clinic is for riders who want to ride better in a group or are ready to start group riding.  If you have never taken this class, the Club urges you to sign up!  If you’ve taken this class in the past (we haven’t offered it for over five years), we urge you to sign up as a refresher.

TOPICS COVERED:

  • RIDING LANES – We’ll review and discuss the 3 lanes on a public road

  • GROUP RIDING SKILLS – The protocols that make group riding safer, more predictable, and more fun for you and your fellow riders

  • CONTACT SKILLS – The 4-step process to get you prepared for any contact on the road

  • CORNERING SKILLS – Experience from experts on the best way to approach and make corners

  • PACELINE SKILLS – Learn and practice the long-lost arts of Single, Double, and Rotating Pacelines

Your participation in this clinic will help make the HBC the safest, most respected group of riders in Tennessee!

Please sign up today!  Tom Spear is coordinating the clinic, and he and the other presenters look forward to seeing you on Sunday, April 28, at 9:00 A.M. at the Ravenwood High School parking lot.  There will NOT be a regular Pancake Ride that Sunday.
