August 14 Wednesday night roll

August 14 @ 6:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Major Taylor Cycling Club – Wednesday ride rolling at 6:15 pm sharp.

Please arrive before 6:00 pm, location: Three Creeks Park 3860 Bixby Rd, Groveport, OH 43125

Tonight is going to be a something different. There will not be an A route, nor will there be a B route. There is one route we all will take.

There are a number of events coming up where the Majors will travel to other places and participate in rides. We will be thrown in with other club riders and expected to participate in a meaningful and thoughtful way. In other words, it’s paramount we represent well. However many of us haven’t had the experiences other clubs have had. So (please pardon the puns) it time to get up to speed.

And as the A group discussed at the end of last weeks roll, remember, you cannot be too nice.

Tonights roll will be about riding in a group. The focus will be on explaining some really simple techniques that will, when practiced, allow the group to maintain a higher average speed and ultimately have a lot more fun.

But again, remember tonight is about riding as a group. A large part of that is watching your club mates and helping them when you can.

Here are some resources which are well worth watching.

How to ride as a group – Group etiquette

Echelon Training

Pace line rolling

There will be a short discussion about the objectives we are trying to achieve on tonights ride, which are:

  • Focus on Rolling as a group.
  • Obtaining a comfortable group pace
  • Learning to pass off the lead
  • SHORT PULL techniques
  • Maintaining an echelon over all types of terrain
