While the Ann Arbor Spring Training Series is on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, bike riding has been on anything but a hiatus—people are out enjoying riding! At some point outdoor racing will return and we want to help new racers—or even just people interested in riding in groups—be prepared. So we're hosting two sessions of the Beginning Racer Webinar, June 20 and 27, 8:30-9:30 a.m.
In this free webinar, learn the basics for riding in a group. You could be headed out with friends, joining a group ride, finishing a gran fondo, doing a gravel grinder, or racing in a criterium—understanding how you should ride and what to expect of others in a group will help you to ride faster and more safely!
This program will be done in two sessions. On Saturday, June 20 we will cover the fundamentals of what, why, and how to ride well in a group. The following Saturday, June 27, we will build on those fundamentals by applying and adapting them to cornering, sprinting, and other dynamic group riding situations. Along the way we will have plenty of time for question and answer about group riding or cycling in general.
Please join us for both sessions, but if you can't participate live make sure to register and we will notify you when the recorded versions are available.
Normally we'd learn and practice these basics during the Ann Arbor Spring Training Series, but until the series returns live we're excited to help you learn the foundations of basic group riding skills.
