LCSG 13th April 2014 Bike handling workshop
At Lovecyclingsg, we believe the best way of training is to learn by doing. This effort was led by George Lim with many helpers for the common good of the community. Have a look at the photos where the community learned the finer skill of bike handling specific to Singapore environment.
Some drills that was practised that day.
1) Learning to cycle slowly in the middle of 2 rows of cone. The intent is to simulate tight situation on the roads and also the pavement. Moderating the speed with brakes and keeping a stable balance.
As the class progressed, the cones were moved closer to increase technical difficulty and give the riders confidence
2) S course. This helps the rider understand their bike handling and turning radius needed
3) E braking. Learn to use both brakes to stop cleanly and confidently.
4) Riding slow from one point to the other. This helps esp on pavement situation and tight lines riders face
We are also very happy to have the Nparks team coming and share more on what they are doing and also the signage that is common in the PCN.
