Riders who do not have these items will not be allowed to take part in the session.

If you are on the suspended list you can not participate in coaching sessions.

Unless otherwise noted, participants are expected to be riding road bikes. Aero bars are not allowed.

Due to the increasing number of users in the park, all coaching sessions are limited to 12 riders, first come first served.
