Eliminate bad habits, including ones you don't know you have!

To welcome in the social season and new members, the club has organised a group riding skills session this Saturday 5th November.

Meet: 9.00am Leisure Centre, Linlithgow

From there we will ride over to Oracle on Blackness Road to make use of their traffic free car park

Purpose of session
The session will be useful to any member who wants to feel more confident in a group or develop their skills
The session will cover:

1. keeping a wheel
2. riding side by side
3. communication in a group
4. change overs on the front
5. singling out
6. cornering
7. braking effectively

The session will also cover group etiquette and safety

There will be some fun spot prizes!

Riders both experienced and beginner will get an opportunity to develop their skills

We have space for 20 riders in this first session but will plan further sessions over the coming weeks.

It is recommended that everyone in the club attends a session so that you are aware of what is expected on a club run - even experienced riders will learn new skills!

The coaching session will finish at 10.30, after which riders can test their skills on a proper club run - A ride to Craigies Farm
