FCV Adult Rider Devo Program
02.16.2015

FCV Rider Development Program

This is a drill-based track and road cycling program designed to build confidence, develop skills and professionalism, and improve fitness for beginners, enthusiasts, and recreational riders. It is for adult and masters riders and is well-suited to those training for charity rides, touring rides, or regular club outings as well as those simply interested in developing as cyclists. The supportive and inclusive atmosphere will be focused on fun, friendship, and individual development and achievement.

The program is open to all FCV members at no cost. Sessions will begin on the track on Sundays 2-4 pm. As weather permits, the program will transition outdoors onto the road and new dates/times will be announced. Saturday morning road rides and road skills will be held 10-1 pm and will be added as weather permits. Because it is a skills development course, it is not a drop-in program; only registered riders may participate. To register, please contact the FCV at forestcityvelodrome@live.com. Space is limited.

Session Leader: Benjamin Hill

First session will be on Sunday Mar 1 2-4.

Milton....
01.18.2015

The FCV will not be issuing any cards for riders who have misplaced their Track 1 cards.

It is impossible for the FCV to know when a rider took the class or how they did.

It is the responsibility of each rider to show they can ride the track.

Thank you for your understanding.

FCV Management team.
