Description

SOLO First Aid for Bikers and Cyclists (NICA-approved)

If you spend a lot of time on your bike, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to learn the basics of how to handle injuries and emergencies. Here is the perfect course for you! Class runs from 8:00 am until 4:30 pm in the glorious gravel-riding hub of Peacham, Vermont. While offering useful information for any adventurer, including the Patient Assessment System and recognition and treatment of Soft Tissue Injuries, Musculoskeletal Injuries, and Enviromental Injuries, SOLO's First Aid for Bikers is geared toward pedal pushers of all sorts. This course offers a mix of chalk talk and practical sessions to solidify learning, and satisfies First Aid requirements for Level 1, 2, and 3, NICA coaches, ride leaders, or team volunteers leading practices within 1 hour of definitive care (hospital).

Cost includes instruction, training materials, and certification fee - and it's a benefit for a great cause! This event is offered in conjunction with Saturday's Peacham Fall Fondo, a gravel-ride not to be missed, organized by professional cyclist Ian Boswell. All profits benefit the LoveYourBrain Foundation, a non-profit supporting brain injury prevention and healing.

Need CPR certification? There's an optional CPR course on Friday 9/20 from 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm (an additional $40; see our other courses below).

Bring comfortable clothes you don't mind getting dirty, as we will be doing patient rescue scenarios which involve some moulage and rolling around on the ground. We'll take a 30-minute lunch break, but meals are not provided at this event, so please bring a bag lunch.
