Thinking of taking up cycling in 2013? Used to ride but away from it for a few years? Casual rider who wants to learn correct bike fit and rules of the road? Bikeology 101 is for you!
Bikeology 101 is a free, informative workshop for those new to cycling, returning to cycling after a lay-off, or experienced cyclists who want to learn more from seasoned cycling veterans. Topics will include proper bike fit, using gears, cadence, safe uphills and downhills, group cycling safety and etiquette, road safety and more, presented by veteran cyclists Dr. Karen Chaney and Dr. Nancy Buck.
The workshop will be held Saturday, Jan. 5, 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Discovery Park, near the park entrance at Garden Highway and Discovery Park Road in Sacramento. Although the workshop is free, cost is $5 to park inside Discovery Park.
Bring your bike and helmet and join the group following the workshop for a short ride on the American River Parkway to put into practice what you have learned. Helmets are required to participate in the group ride.
Bikeology 101 is open to all interested participants and is one of a series of informative workshops and training rides provided as a public service by NorCal AIDS Cycle (NCAC), a four-day, 330-mile cycling fundraiser held May 16-19, 2013.
