Riding Skills Workshop and Intro Ride

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through June 3.

Trip dates: Saturday, May 2, 2020 12:00 AM

Are you a rider who would like to start riding on the road or join us on group rides? Perhaps you've ridden a bit on a rail trail, or have limited experience riding on the road or in groups. This workshop and ride would be appropriate for those who know how to ride, but would like to gain skill and confidence with using your gears, how to approach a hill, making turns, taking the lane, signaling, and proper etiquette while riding with a group. We will also do a basic review of the important parts of your bike and gear that can make riding more comfortable. After our workshop, AMC bike leaders will lead a short (approximately 10 mile) ride to practice riding skills. Road or hybrid bike in good working order, a helmet, and a water bottle required.
