Hi all,

Western Australian Tandem Cycling Advisory Council (WATCAC) are running a Tandem skills clinic on Sunday 29th October 2017 9am to 11am.

The aim of the clinic will be to provide an opportunity for each person to have a basic bike fit and discus their cycling goals for next year and how they could achieve them.

As part of the clinic we will talk about nutrition and hydration on the bike, bike equipment and basic bike maintenance. There will also be an opportunity to get feedback on your bike position and technique.

The clinic will be held at Bentley Technology Park and we will provide further details about the address in the week to come.
