Bike clinics

The High Adventure club had two bike clinics, one on April 20th and one on April 27th. They were both from nine to noon and took place in the parking lot next to the Brunswick rail station. The first session was on the essentials of bike equipment and maintenance. The club learned what they should pack on a trip as well as what they should not. Our instructor, Alyssa,  also demonstrated the essential ABC(D) quick check. After the clinic, the club went for a bike ride down the C&O canal.

The following weekend the club meet again and had a session on Riding fundamentals. We learned about riding on the road with cars, things like signaling, and lane positions. After the talk, we had an additional hands-on lesson where we practiced scanning behind us as we rode and signaling with one hand, as well as the best way to stop quickly After the lessons, the club went for another bike ride along the canal.
