By February 20, 2015 Uncategorized No Comments

BETH NEWELL, a 2014 Pan Am Champion and 2016 Olympic hopeful will lead the Cleveland Velodrome’s Women’s Track Cycling Clinic on May 23rd and May 24th. The two-day clinic, sponsored by Tkach Consulting and Ohio Savings (a division of New York Community Bank), will feature professional coaching for both recreational and competitive cyclists. No track cycling experience required – we will teach you how to ride the track.

Ms. Newell will be joined by her husband and coach Michael Hernandez. In addition to track instruction the clinic will include sessions on sports nutrition and yoga for cycling.  Beth is a native of the Cleveland area and is looking forward to returning to test out Ohio’s only velodrome.  The cost for the two day clinic is $45 and will include lunch both days plus bike rental and coaching.
