GRAVEL GRINDER SKILLS CLINIC-SATURDAY MAY 11th, 2019- Creemore, ON.
For many of you, this may be the year you decide to try out a gravel race or ride. Gravel riding is a great way to see new roads and experience a new style of riding. Gravel riding requires a different skill set than road riding. This clinic will prepare you for everything gravel riding may throw at you. There are many types of gravel roads. Super smooth hard packed, freshly graded and some that barely resemble a road. Learn the proper techniques to ride loose climbs, potholes and bumpy descents.
