Youth Cycling Clinic
We had a great time at our 2nd Youth Cycling Clinic yesterday at the
Lindsay Collision Center
in Springfield, VA. It was a perfect venue as the weather was unpredictable with some nearby thunderstorms, we had plenty of air-conditioned room to ride around in.
Everyone’s bike got checked over
We talked about how to check over the bike before each ride, with the Geico Lizard looking on!
We went through fitting our helmets, the A-B-C-Quick-Check, slalom-course turns, quick-turns, emergency braking
Proper helmet fit is very important – if it doesn’t fit right it won’t protect you!
Plenty of room to ride, we had two full courses set up!
The outside course for “quick turns” –
Looking ahead and through the turns makes you a better rider.

We even had time to practice everyone’s favorite – riding wheelies!
Keep an eye on
for another free youth clinic soon! Special thanks to Jerry Holloway at
and the entire team at
Lindsay Automotive Group
for supporting these events.
