If you are new to tri I hope that you spotted two of the notices in particular within Ciara's update from a few days ago? We are implementing some new safety procedures starting from next Saturday 7th of October and a free to all Group Cycling Skills Session also next Saturday, 7th October.
The group cycling skills session is essential if you are new to the club and are not familiar with the way we cycle on Saturdays. Also if you are new to cycling or inexperienced in group cycling then this is a must to safely get the most from your Saturday cycles. There are so many benefits from cycling in a group from safety to training efficacy and on to plain simple social interaction which if you are new to the club will be very informative and a great way to integrate with your club colleagues.
This session is focused on safety first of all, yours and the group's and then on to why and how we ride in a group, the skills, techniques and habits you will have to learn and use. It is all accomplished while we cover the New to Tri spin next Saturday practising while we cycle. We will even cover the finer points of etiquette in the cycle group and build both your knowledge and confidence to help you maximise your Saturday spins.
With regard to the new safety practices we all have to get used to, we will have to sign on to the spin this week and exchange contact details and such like which will take a few minutes. Please come a little early as we will all be unused to the process so it is likely to be a bit awkward this week. There is also a new procedure to split groups when they get too large so I am suggesting that you put your name below in a post if you hope to join the skill session. While we are unlikely to max out this group I wouldn't like to see somebody miss the session if the group is full!
Please copy this list, paste it into a new reply adding your name to join the Cycling Skill Session
See you on Saturday
