Session: “Train Your Bike” skill building
Time: 9:00 AM -Noon, Saturday, August 24th
This session will help you build your bike handling skills before the tour. We’ll go through a series of group exercises to give you practice in starting and stopping, braking and shifting, making turns, and avoiding road hazards.
SVMC lot S5 is the west-most parking lot at Southern Vermont Medical Center. It’s next to the access road to Monument avenue, on the west side of the main buildings. There will be signs by the access road on the 24th.
After the Train Your Bike session, at 1:00 PM, we’ll meet to complete the tour.
Session: Tour of Bennington.
Time: 1:00 PM – 4:30 PM, August 24th
The tour will cover 6 – 7 features and a couple of demonstrations along the way. We’ll talk about each feature before we ride them. You can ride each feature as a solo rider. If you would be more comfortable riding with someone else for some features, we’ll arrange it. After each feature we’ll gather again to discuss what you learned.
You’ll need to register and get your ticket for this event to attend these sessions.
Need-based Scholarships are available to cover up to $25 of the cost of each session. Please contact me directly if you want to apply for a scholarship, with a short (50 words or less) explanation of why you want or need a scholarship for these on-bike sessions.
