Cycling PEI Clinics Open to All

Monday May 29th is the first of many Cycling PEI clinics that are open to both members and the general public. Monday?s clinic is a Cycling Training Clinic led by Wes Jackshaw. Jackshaw is PEI's only Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with the National Strength and Conditioning Association, certified with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (PFLC), and a Kinesiologist with over 20 years of experience. He will take the participants through a range of training 'how to' and 'what for' topics, such as: training principles, periodization, planning and preventing overtraining, staying healthy and injury free, weight training and the cyclist, nutrition before, during and after a ride and many more. The clinic will start at 7:00PM at the Sport PEI office building and if you have specific topics you would like to see covered, email Wes at soleoption@eastlink.ca . The session will cover a range of topics and abilities from the beginner to the advanced. The clinic is free to all Cycling PEI members and is open to the general public for only $10. Cycling PEI membership forms will also be available at the clinic.

June continues to fulfill the need for a number of other clinics including a Road Officials clinic for new officials/volunteers on Saturday June 3rd. Later in June is a Sprockids Leader Training June 10-11 and a Mountain Bike Introduction Coaching course June 24th both being held in Summerside.

For more information on any of these clinics or to pre-registrar, you are asked to email Jackshaw at soleoption@eastlink.ca or 436-7321.
