Cycling 301: Group Riding!

Who Is This Class For?

Our Cycling 301 class is for the rider who has mastered "clipping in" and out of their pedals with cycling shoes and rides confidently solo or with a couple of friends.  You know the primary rules of the road and bike paths.  You've also achieved a baseline level of fitness so that you can cruise the flats at 18 - 20 mph (assuming no headwinds).

Your next step to progressing as a cyclist is to become comfortable riding in a group.  Riding in a bunch or pack of cyclists can seem perilous at first, but with the right knowledge and a little bit of practice, you'll be part of the "peloton" in no time!   

What You'll Experience

This class is only offered on Wednesdays because you will participate in one of Orange County's most popular mid-week group rides known as "Wednesday Worlds" at ARB Cyclery.  

   For just $65, here is what you'll experience in our two and a half hour session of Cycling 301:

  • Meet with your Cycling Instructor at 5pm (1 hour before the group ride)
  • Review group riding etiquette concepts such as:
    • Leading
    • Bar-to-Bar
    • Holding a line
    • Signaling
    • Wheel overlap
    • Half-wheeling
    • Peeling off
    • Pulling through
  • Kit up and prepare for the Wednesday "B" group ride
  • Start out with your instructor by riding at the back of the group (no riders behind)
  • Begin putting group ride etiquette concepts into practice
  • With your instructor, gradually move up towards the middle of the group so that you are now following AND leading
  • At the end of the ride, review with your instructor what went well and what you need to continue working on

What's Next?

  • Conquer the Century (coming soon)
  • Bike Maintenance 101 (coming soon)
