This spring, join the Komorebi Cycling Team and Friends on Bikes for a three part clinic series to encourage women, trans, femme and non-binary riders to adventure by bike. The clinics will be hosted on consecutive Wednesday nights – riders are welcome to attend all or just one. Read through the descriptions and register for clinics below (space is limited, please check the sign-up page for availability):

Wednesday, February 28th

The first clinic in the series will provide an overview of adventure cycling. We’ll talk about bikes, bags, and gear used for off-road touring as well as how to approach your first bikepacking trip.

Wednesday, March 7th

In the second clinic in the series will dig into the details. We’ll talk about what and how to pack, how to fuel yourself right and how to develop and navigate a route.

Wednesday, March 14th

The third and final clinic in the series will have two parts: the first part will provide guidance on how to lead a bikepacking trip and the second part will be a storytelling space, where we’ll invite folks to tell a short story from a off-road touring experience.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to register for a guided bikepacking ride tentatively scheduled for March 17-18 (weather dependent).
