Update as of September 2021: We have paused in-person skills sessions for the season to focus on our personal coaching clients. We will resume skills next year! 


Learn new techniques in a safe, progressive manner with private skills instruction.

As experienced skills instructors, we help athletes more fully understand the mechanics of cycling through one-on-one instruction. We work with road cyclists, triathletes, and mountain bikers from novice to advanced. Our trained eyes quickly identify areas of improvement, offering rapid results in short periods of time. Topics may include: shifting, braking, bike handling, cadence, pedaling efficiency, body position, climbing, descending, technical riding, and group riding.

Skills sessions are conducted Monday through Friday from March through October in Central Park. The fee is $125/hour.
