Its time for some road riding and First Aid education to keep you and your girls safe this season! ⛑️ Because riding with friends is more fun, and sisters keep sisters safe! Sometimes we do get hurt, and sometimes our friends get hurt, but this education is aimed towards minimizing the injury and might even save a life on the trail. This clinic will be taught by Kourtney Fontenault, our resident Registered Nurse, who works in the Emergency Room at UT Southwestern. She has been a nurse for 4 years. ⚕️ We will seek to cover allergic reactions , bone and joint injuries, head/neck/spine injuries, wounds , and heat related illness ️.
Come join us on Mother's Day Weekend for a road ride and trail side first aid clinic with some bonus knowledge on hydration at Plano Cycling & Fitness! Our road ride will start and finish from Plano Cycling and Fitness. If you don't have a road bike DO NOT fear, many girls will be doing the ride on their MTN bikes at an appropriate pace. There are soooo many benefits to road riding in addition to MTN biking and we want to explore that on these rides! Each group will ride for 1-1.5hrs depending on group needs. After the ride we will continue with a maintenance clinic inside Plano Cycling and Fitness for another 1-1.5hr of bike goodness! More details on the topic to come...
As always we'll have a "first time rider" group as well as beginner and intermediate groups. You do not have to be a paid member to join us.
The clinic portion of the morning is FREE for Dirt Side Sisters members and $15 for non-members. Drinks and snacks will be provided at the clinic along with special discounts to Plano Cycling & Fitness. Please arrive early enough to sign the waiver and for a quick bike check. Wheels on road after our group picture at 8:30am!
