FACULTAD DE CIENCIAS DE LA ACTIVIDAD FÍSICA Y EL DEPORTE
Grado en Ciencias de la Actividad Física y del Deporte
Subject quarterly duration
First level of the three possible matter for the sport of cycling.
It will aim to tackle the basic contents of the sport, with some theoretical aspects related to the origin and evolution of this deported, along with other related material, the technique and the different manifestations of the same competitive. On a practical level will be provided training aimed at developing the technical bases of the sport, focusing on content associated with balance, propulsion and steering of the bicycle.
Working in an international context
Ability to select and how to use the material and appropriate sports equipment in the field of cycling.
Ability to identify inappropriate practices that pose a risk to health, in order to avoid and correct them in different types of populations.

Continued assistance will be needed to assimilate the content class to the rhythm of the group. The use of a mechanical implement as cycling and possible risk perception by students justify the need to attend classes in order to evolve safely and within the original objectives.
Continuous assessment is applied.
Attendance and participation is required in class. Minimum 80%. Failure to reach the percentage should resort to a final evaluation in ordinary call, consisting of a set of theoretical and practical tests.
Final note: 65% Theoretical content, 35% Practical content, or alternative work. For the assignment of the final grade, both sections must be approved with a grade of at least 5 points.
If overcome, only one of the sections in the ordinary call, only paragraph shall be submitted not approved in the extraordinary.
There will be three tests theoretical objective, with the same weight in the contents of the syllabus. The final note in this section is derived from the average of the three controls. To be able to average note will only hold control with a note never less than 4.
There will be a technical test on mountain bike that contain six exercises that are valued elemental mastery over aspects of the balance, propulsion and driving.
Substitute work of practical content:
In any case, unless physical problem that prevented the students who choose this second route, must attend the sessions `practices developed within the grounds of the campus.
We will study the individual situation of each student who chooses this option and shall, where appropriate, conducting a review paper in the field of cycling.
The language of the course will be taught in Spanish.
Each student will be assigned, in the early going, a bicycle according to anthropometric characteristics and the use of helmets will be absolutely mandatory for security.
If the student prefers to use his own material, you can do likewise.
