This is a Cycling pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 3231)

Visualize a racetrack anywhere. I'm in Charlotte, so we go to the Charlotte Motor Speedway using the routine below. Set your intervals to suit the particular track you'll race on. In order to work right and left leads, race the track in reverse the second lap.

Announce, 'ladies and gentlemen: start your engines' and wave the flag to begin the race. If you're into props, create your own mini start, caution, checkered flags. Most of the race is in the saddle. Option on the 1 minunte straightaways: add lifts (jumps) or for more advanced students do a fast/light/standing interval.

Total time: 7 minutes (2 laps)

Give visual cues for dodging wrecks (tell them to close their eyes because they can't see for the smoke), pressure from drivers trying to pass, debris on the track from blowouts, wrecks, etc. I've also used a 'figure 8' track solving the right & left leans, but don't know of a real track like this. Let us know if anyone knows of one.

Thanks for Roller Coaster, Interactive Climb and Endurance Spin (my favorite).
