Women's Development Coaching Sessions

As part of the Women and Veterans Series 2010, Scottish Cycling is pleased to announce 3 Women’s Development Coaching Sessions on:
· 8th May at Ingliston Showground,
· 26th June at Caird Park
· 7th August at Ingliston Showground.

These coach led sessions will aim to teach women of all abilities the skills for road racing. Working with Scottish Cycling’s performance development coaches you will have the chance to develop your skills in a positive environment where the focus will be on skill development rather than physical ability.

The sessions will focus on:
· bunch riding skills and confidence,
· cornering,
· accelerations in and out of the saddle

Using coaching sessions that are designed to give riders the maximum amount of time on the bike while focusing on skill development; it will be a great opportunity to learn in a fun environment with like-minded people. A big part of the feedback process is using video analysis, this is only one of the ways the coaches will be able to support your skill development. By creating a beginner friendly environment where it is ok to not know! it’s hoped you will have the opportunity to ask those questions you have always had but never asked!

The session on 8th May will start at 9am. The exact timings and content of the other 2 sessions will be confirmed closer to the time. The cost will be £10 per person for each development session and payable on the day.

This is a fantastic opportunity for women to be part of a specific coaching session before the start of the Women and Veterans Series which take place on the following dates:

16th May – Women and Veterans’ RR Series Event 1 – Dunfermline
3rd July - Women and Veterans’ RR Series 2 – Blairgowrie
22nd August - Women and Veterans’ RR Series 3 – Balfron

We would like to encourage as many women along to these sessions as possible whether experienced or novice riders.

If you have any questions regarding the sessions please do not hesitate to contact the Events Coordinator Ruth Volley on 0131 317 9704 or emailing
