CVC offers cycling clinics to help women become more skillful cyclists whether their goal is to race or simply improve performance and have more fun on their bike.  

Looking Back at Previous Clinics

cvc clinicsCapitol Velo Club has offered several clinics to its members over the past seasons. Our clinics represent the effort of CVC, combined with the support of riders from Brazen Dropouts, Team Kenda, and other racing clubs to grow women’s cycling by improving the skills and confidence of both novice and advanced riders. 

Our past clinic offerings have included Gordon Paulson’s “Designing Your Racing Season”, Damon Rinard's “Turning Techniques” and “Defensive Riding Skills” (with help from David Blomme), as well as “Sprint & Attack" by Team Kenda racers Kristin Wentworth and Monique Karlen. Additionally, Jane Rinard offered two “Time Trial” clinics providing the foundation for Gordon Paulson’s “Team Time Trial” clinic in Paoli.

In autumn, CVC turns its attention to cyclocross, offerring clinics by world-renowned professional cyclocross racer Jonothan Page and others.

All in all, CVC offers many great opportunities to learn from others!
