ON THE CANALS BICYCLE SKILLS WORKSHOP INFO
The Bicycle Skills Workshop Series is presented free of charge by Adirondack Ultra Cycling, the NYS Canal Corporation and the NYS Power Authority. This event will be held at the Adirondack Ultra Cycling Bike Shop, located at: 160 Broad Street in Schuylerville, NY. This event starts in the backyard of the shop. To access the backyard, please use Beagle Lane, which is off Saratoga Street. Please note that there is no parking in the backyard and the shop does not have a parking lot, but there is ample parking on the street. The shop will be open before and after the ride.
This series will demonstrate and practice the skills needed to become a better cyclist. Level I will start off by presenting the rules of the road, basic riding etiquette, riding in traffic and on bike paths. We'll also hand out and go over a typical bicycle checklist that has all of the essentials you need to maximize the enjoyment of your rides. Each session will last 1½ - 2 hours.
Level II will expand on Level I and will focus on more advanced riding etiquette and skills, including group riding, pacing, nutrition and advanced equipment. These sessions will also last 1½ - 2 hours.
Our final session on Oct. 22nd will focus on riding in the cooler weather of the fall & winter. No need to stop riding just because it's a little cold out! We'll go over proper clothing and equipment and effective dressing techniques. This session will mostly be in a classroom setting, but if time permits, we will go for a ride, and if we're lucky, it will be a little chilly out...
