Womens Only Free Introduction to Racing and Skills Session
Do you ride socially, have been thinking about racing? Or, you've started racing and would like to test your skills and get some pointers?
As part of the Nicol Jackson Womens Series HPRW are running a free 'Introduction to Racing' course at the Nundah Criterium Circuit on Saturday 4 July 2015 11am - 12:30pm. The session is aimed at novice, beginner and intermediate riders. Everyone is welcome to attend - you don't need a Cycling Australia racing licence.
Club Coach Kris Kersley, as well as experienced HPRW women riders, will explain the basics to get you ready for racing. We will cover how to ride and take turns in a tight pack, and also cover some of the tactics and skills of racing such as sprinting, breaking away and cornering. There will be a race simulation at the end of the course with a debrief straight afterwards.
If you’d like to come along, lodge your expression of interest with Saskia, the ladies captain at
Knowing numbers prior will allow us to tailor the session but don’t worry, you don’t have to register in advance, you can just come along to our clubhouse at Albert Bishop Park Hedley Ave Nundah.
Please arrive no later than 10:45am as you will need to sign on for free Cycling Development and Skills Insurance through the sports governing body Cycling Australia (if you don’t already have a racing licence).
Hope to see you there and if there is anyone you know who would like to come please let them know!
