Well, we successfully completed the second FCCC half-day training at Hillingdon this morning in which we focussed on coaching club riding skills again this morning.
Twenty-four club members were out riding today, which was a tremendous turn-out. Thank you to all of of you who participated. We are sorry for those who had to abort their participation at short notice.
Four coaches (two static and two roaming) imparted their wisdom yet again as we trained members to ride in tight formation, practising drafting one another and riding through & off at various speeds, among other challenges. The session was very informative and even those who had been before still felt they gained yet more again from attending. This will become part of a regular suite of training sessions offered at FCCC. We were even asked to make it a full-day offering in 2023 which we will take on board. There is a lot more we can do in a full day – that’s for sure! We only scraped the surface today.
These training days are exhilarating as well as educational – all while getting a great workout at the same time on a safe, traffic-free, dedicated cycling circuit.
