Cornering Tips

October 27, 2019 | 19d | Training Tips

The Cyclone Challenge Rides will take you on a great journey encompassing high hills, steep climbs and descents, with some narrow roads, tight bends and testing road surfaces. We believe that a Sportive should be both challenging and engaging for riders, which is why we have included such a variety of roads and landscapes.
 
However, this does mean that as a cyclist you need to treat the route with respect and it will test you cycling skills and techniques along the way. One skill that will be particularly important to you is cornering and Spring is a great time to give your cycling technique a little thought and perhaps brush up on the basics as well as getting in those training miles.
 
We recommend the British Cycling and GCN's Ridesmart videos and there are a range of tips on technique, including this excellent video on cornering.
