2019 Road Skills Clinic

We are once again offering a road skills clinic for anyone new to group riding or looking to improve their group riding skills.  The lessons are progressive, so please plan to attend all 3.  Coach Dan has tips to help improve your technique.  The clinic will meet at 7pm at McMeeken Arena for the last three Tuesdays in July.  Please plan to attend all three weeks as the lessons are progressive.

Are you a skilled rider interested in volunteering?  We could use the extra help.  Please contact dan@brosemer.org if you can assist with the clinic.
