Thursday's Road1 Class
We had another Road1 class on Thursday for Tulsa Public School PE teachers. Local bicycle shop employees attended also. The photo is one of the students performing the quick turn drill. That's Gary Parker watching her turn. Gary was our lead instructor for the day.
I remember Bob Chapelle, the LCI who taught our introductory Road1 class, remarking that teaching a group of experienced cyclists was so different from teaching novices. At the time, I thought he was exaggerating. But he was right. It is easier to teach experienced riders. For the most part, they're unafraid of attempting the maneuvers, though even a long-time cyclist may be intimidated by countersteering.
More on this later. I'm taking a vacation day today, and I have much to do.
