Cyclocross requires good fitness, great skills and consistent race preparation. Join our clinic and learn how to improve your cross skills and race readiness. Want to start your season strong? Feeling a little rusty from the off season? Want to jump in but need some practice first? This is the perfect time to get a pre- season skill tune up or to hone skills before your first event. We keep our rider/coach ratios small to ensure individual attention so that skills can be taught and practiced to meet individual and group needs.

Is This Clinic For You?
Adult and junior men and women. All levels welcome including first timers. We will tailor the sessions to your ability level and split into groups if needed.
A bike in good working condition. A cyclocross or gravel style bike will be best, and/or mountain bikes (without bar ends) are welcome as well. Flat pedals are OK. Be sure to come dressed to ride for all weather. Bring food and water for 3 hours of riding. Expect warm to hot and dry conditions, but check the forecast and come prepared.
Helmets are mandatory – they must be in good condition and fit appropriately.
The clinic is held at Gateway Green in NE Portland near Rocky Butte, Portland’s first dedicated cycling park. Please note there is no parking at Gateway Green. Do not park at the Trimet Park and Ride. They will tow. You may park for free at The Lumberyard Indoor Bike Park at 2700 NE 82nd Ave, Portland, Oregon 97220 and ride over.
If you are going through the MAX station, walk your bike! They will ticket you.
The clinics will be held rain or shine…this is cyclocross!
