Vikings Cycling Club Spring Novice Program 2018 (Group 1 – Tuesday)
October 16 - 6:00 am - 7:00 am
An event every week that begins at 6:00am on Tuesday, repeating until November 20, 2018
The Novice Program is aimed at bringing new riders into the world of road cycling and racing.
The program has been running since 2006 and has proved its ability to prepare riders for a safe and successful first season of racing. We will teach you about road safety, bunch riding skills, and race tactics while also helping to motivate you to improve your fitness.
There is a focus on progression at a pace that challenges the individual. As such we can cater to many different abilities and the program has successful club riders as well as those who’ve gone on to international fame. But most importantly the program is about meeting fellow cyclophiles and having a lot of fun.
The Novice Program is perfect for you if:
* you own a road bike with drop handlebars
* you ride your bike regularly and are keen to improve skills, fitness and confidence
* you would like to give a race a go when you are ready.
* although not mandatory, clip in pedals are highly recommended
