NEBC Spring Racing Clinic

Word is that this year’s clinic is once again filling up fast. This is a great way to learn and develop skills, even if you don’t think you’ll race. If you’re thinking of racing, then this is a great place to get the essential skills and training from a great group of experienced racers.

Registration for the 2008 NEBC Introduction to Bicycle Road Racing
program is now open.

Back for its 16th year, this program teaches the fundamental skills of bicycle road racing. Included in the skills taught are pacelines, pack riding skills, bike handling, cornering, sprinting, climbing and descending. The program also introduces training methods, tactics and strategies for successful bike racing. The program culminates with a “graduation exercise,” where we bring you to an actual race to try out your newly learned skills.

The 2008 NEBC Introduction to Bicycle Road Racing program consists of two parts:

– 2 evening classroom sessions, where racing and training fundamentals are presented (Thursday, April 3rd and Monday, April14th, 7:00 – 8:30 pm)

– 4 Saturday morning riding sessions, where riding and racing skills are taught and practiced. (April 5th, 12th, 19st, 26th, 10am – 1pm)

This program is recommended for anyone that already has bicycle riding skills and experience, but wants to take it to the next level and enter the world of road racing. More information and registration is available on BikeReg at:
