Coaching Sessions
Saturday 1 December 1:30pm – 3:30pm (3 of 3)

VenueWhitehill Junior School, Whitehill Road, Hitchin, Herts. SG4 9HT

Simon Doyle is planning three training sessions during November and December 2012.
Sessions will provide the attendees with the techniques and skills needed to participate in a cyclo-cross event or non-technical mountain bike race/ ride. This is the last of the three sessions and will culminate in a practice cyclo-cross race.  

We can coach  ~10-15 students per coach. All sessions to be around 2 hours duration and will include two separate/specific skills classes and warm-up and cool-down. There's no upper age limit but it would be ideal if there was a 7-14ish group and then 14+ group.  

Riders need to bring a well maintained mountain bike or road bike which can be ridden on grass. So long as riders have some basic riding skills and are keen to learn everyone will be happy bunnies.

A minimum age of 7. Safety helmets mandatory. Any attendee under 16 will need to complete a parental consent form in advance (this will be available for download from the link via British Cycling).  

Further details to follow on the website or from Simon directly. sim.doyle@gmail.com. If there is sufficient interest we can look to increase numbers. 

If you are interested please express your interest to Simon asap. Places allocated to Nomads members on a first-come, first-served basis. Voluntary donations welcomed.

Circuit Training
11th & 18th December from 19.45 at Hitchin RFC (Pavilion Room).This will concentrate on mobility and core fitness this month. Please bring an exercise mat if you have one.
