Many of us see riders who struggle to stand. They come out of the saddle but try to resist the natural side-to-side movement. This video demonstrates “Cheek to Cheek,” a fun drill you can use to help riders move their body properly when standing. You can even make it into a cheeky game. 😉
As instructors it is important that we monitor the form our those in our class. It is not uncommon to notice riders pedaling with their knees too far apart or tracking outward. This video addresses this needed correction and provides two cues instructors can use to guide participants back to better alignment.
Ever notice riders who turn their elbows out to the sides, either when seated or when standing? I’ve seen it quite often at conferences, even amongst instructors. Gene Nacey of Cycling Fusion and I have a clever cue for you to cure your students of this habit. It’s a great way to think of riding both indoors and outside!
