Dustbin Training 

Summer Mondays at St John Fisher High School 6.30pm.

The training will give you the confidence and skill required to ride in a bunch and to stay in the bunch safely, without getting pushed around. Too look around like a meerkat, too watch backs instead of wheels, too fight for your place, too be able to go for that gap, TOO WIN THE FIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also we go over corning safely, bike handling skills, this is for all ages. We do run a smaller circuit for new riders

 

.” DUSTBIN TRAINING" is a system developed over many years by Roy Swinnerton using dustbins as he did not have any cones, we have cones, but the name still stays.
