Shifting/Ride Safety Clinic Part 2
Meeting place: Polo Fields South Restrooms (https://goo.gl/maps/k1UJiPR9ju42)
Ride Turn Sheet: https://www.strava.com/routes/11716548
We’ve adapted this week’s ride to accommodate the large intake of new cyclists in the 0-60 program. This ride is open to all club members, but mentor attentions will be focused on the 0-60 cohort. We will meet at the Polo Field Cycling Track on the South End near the bathrooms and practice shifting, riding predictably, signaling and changing positions in a group ride. Note: If the track is crowded we will ride on the roads inside GGP.
Depending on the group’s progress, we may venture across the Golden Gate bridge to practice that. We will NOT be doing Paradise Loop this week, but strong cyclists in 0-60 are encouraged to join that general club ride, if you are up to it.
Please note, other cyclists may be using the track so remember your etiquette: slower riders move to the outer edge of the track to allow the speedsters the inner track (just like running track etiquette). Always yield to users already on the track and clearly signal when you are exiting the track so riders behind you know what you are doing.
Bring: helmet, water, snack, phone, cash, ID and emergency contact info, spare tube. Light jacket since we may be talking a bit. Don’t know what to get for tire stuff? Bring your bike to your local bike shop and ask—tell them you will be learning to change your own inner tube and need 1) tube, 2) tire irons, 3) compressed air and valve—it’s nice to have a saddle bag in which to keep all this gear.
