Skills Clinics

Okay enough blog posts about time shares, vacations and the Red Sox. Let's get this blog back to the real reason I started it. That being the business of the high end world of recreational cycling here in Redlands.

This week the heads of state proclaimed and end to the calamity that is the carnage during group ride. The "C" word to be exact.

Can we stop just one more crash with the skill building clinics? I hope so. Do the people who need them. know they need them? I am afraid not.

Just because you are well insured and made the jump between category racings at the local Crits does not mean you couldn't use a refresher. They make doctors take continuing education classes don't they? But hey it's not like you have someone else's life in your hands. Or wait maybe you do, mine.

The thing I love about the skills clinic is its all about the rank and file members of Team Redlands. Not just women or juniors but the 80 percent of the people who ride around town in the kit.

As summer winds down I really hope more of the 80 percent club shows up. Rumor on the street is you will need to check the skills clinic box on your next year’s application.

Be advised if you can't show you attended a clinic you will be required to ride the north side of San Bernardino with JT. Trust me you don't want that.
