Group Riding Skills Training Requirement

The ExxonMobil Cycling Club is a strong supporter of safe cycling. All members must take a hands-on cycling skills training class their first year and at least every three years thereafter.

Our commitment to safety is reflected in our policy that you must be current in your safety training to receive the Club jersey.

We are fortunate that our Club’s very own League of American Bicyclists League Certified Instructors (LCI) offer Group Riding Skills training classes to our Club. We strongly encourage you to sign up early for one of these training sessions. Class fee is $15 for club members attending sessions hosted by Energy Riders Training Series participating teams.
