Developing confident riders who love cycling.
There's more to The LeadOut Foundation than the Mentor Program. The Foundation, together with elite amateur racers, host skills clinics designed to to teach riders how to corner, ride in a pack, draft, and more. Each clinic and each skill worked on improves rider confidence and takes people that "ride bikes" and turns them into cyclists. More confident riders are more likely to participate in cycling events, be they social rides, charity rides, special events, or races.
And when it comes to races, we're there for the "race curious" too. Many of our clinics feature practice races where new and emerging racers can put the skills they've learned into practice in a semi-controlled environment against riders of similar experience levels.
"[A]n incredible clinic full of great tips and tons of constructive feedback.... Each time I go to a clinic I learn something new, improve my skills, and gain confidence and experience."

PAST CLINICS AND EVENTS
Aside from running the Mentor Program at local rides and races, the Foundation has co-hosted and produced a number of skills clinics and participated in other events in the cycling community here in Austin and beyond. These are a few highlights from the past 12 months.
THE ROSEDALE RIDE
March 26, 2022
The Rosedale Ride raises funds for students at the Rosedale School, Austin’s only public school exclusively for children with multiple disabilities and profound needs. The Rosedale Ride is one of Austin’s premier bicycle events with over 1000 participants. Our board served as the ride's Volunteer Coordinator, helped staff aid stations, and offered good cheer to all!
