Following on from the recent article on this subject, we are pleased to say that we have arranged a FREE group riding skills workshop for members on Saturday 22 July 2017, from 2pm till 5pm.
The venue is the Scout hut at Yateley - Macrae Hut, Macrae Road, Yateley GU46 6NQ. The hut is the white building at the corner with Firgrove Road. See https://goo.gl/maps/pVgpYW6uAzw on Google Maps.

The workshop will cover the following areas:
⦁ The dynamics of a group, and how that varies between different types of riding
⦁ Rider techniques in order to maintain group unity
⦁ Special areas of riding such as climbing and descending in a group
⦁ The basic principles of cornering techniques
⦁ Riding in single file or two abreast? The legalities of the two scenarios and how to manage overtaking by vehicles and/or other riders
⦁ The best practice rider position whilst cycling solo and how that translates into riding in a group.
The committee is sure that this workshop will be useful to all members who join our social rides, whatever their experience. It is not just aimed at novices. We look forward to seeing you there.
Just in case you missed it - the workshop is FREE to members!
