If you want to improve your cycling skills, don’t miss our Monday Night Skills & Group Ride sessions.
These weekly “members only” 90 minute sessions focus on cycling skill development including climbing skills, group riding skills, cornering, speed and bike handling skills. Approximately once a month members will participate in a group ride with coaches where riders can put into practice what they have learned.
Coaching is provided by advanced level riders many of whom have racing experience and/or coaching qualifications.
For the group ride, participants meeting at Tunney’s will cycle a flatter, easier route (more suited to Beginner and Novice riders) while participants meeting at Asticou will ride a hillier, more challenging route.
Skills Coordinator: Sylvie D’Aoust
Coaches: Sylvie D’Aoust, Angela Beauchamp, Michelle Gauthier, and NEW Coach Emily Flynn
