It’s not all about the road bike

Jul 19, 2010 | Bike Skills, Savvy Bike Events

Savvy Bike has two upcoming clinics for the dirt crowd, too!

Bike Skills 102 — Mountain Bike Skills — Sunday, July 25th

It’s time for a little dirty fun! We’ll teach you the basics (and not-so-basics) of balance, weight distribution, and how to use the terrain to your advantage. Learn to rock, roll, hop, and jump. Master the art of steep climbs. Learn to descend with confidence and skill. After just four hours, we guarantee you’ll be a better bike handler and have much more fun on the bike. This clinic is highly recommended for both mountain bikers and cyclocrossers.

Bike Skills 103 — Cyclocross Skills + Tactics — Saturday, August 7th

Have you been wondering what’s all the buzz about cyclocross? It’s a fun but challenging sport that’s beginner-friendly and appropriate for the entire family. And best of all, it’s happening at a park near you! Join guest coaches Julie + Paul Bates in this four-hour clinic where you’ll learn all the skills needed to get started in this incredible sport, including mounts, dismounts, and how to shoulder and carry your bike. We’ll also share information about bikes & equipment, the local cyclocross racing scene, and how to train for a successful season. We’ll finish off the day with a simulated race and de-brief. You’ll need a mountain bike or a cyclocross bike for this clinic.
