Thursday Night Sprints EVENT 3 – Sept 22

EVENT 3 – Sept 22: Thursday, September 22nd, any and all club members are invited to join in for our “Lollipop” Round.  The course will be ~8-10km of trails at Pete’s Loop.

Meet at Pete’s Loop trailhead (Maple Lawn Dr)  at 5:30!  Racing will begin at 5:45.

The rocky sections on the entrance to Pete’s WILL NOT be used for this race.  They are not friendly for new racers and therefore do not fit into the fun-for-all formula of Thursday Night Sprints.

CX courses are compact so loads of great spectating options, from one spot you can see pretty well all of it! Cyclocross is really all about the crowd, so if you are planning on spectating make sure you bring a few of the following:
– noise makers,
– signs,
– hand-ups,
– costumes,
– vocal cords,
– snacks to keep your energy up,
but, please…
– no chainsaws…

Fat Bike For Kids!

The days  are getting shorter and the nights cooler.  Autumn is in the air.  Before long comes snowy, groomed trails, bikeathlon, exploring new trails across frozen ponds, and so much more!

To open these opportunities to the club’s youngest members, Brendon and Sabrina have championed a fundraiser to buy club-fat-bikes for kids.  It’s a win-win.  The kids will continue enjoying the amazing lifestyle we all love this winter and we all get some of the coolest tee shirts to hit The Farm!  Please show your support.  Info is below, on the poster that the Gurds have put together to get fund raising under way.   Email fatbikesforkids@gmail.com to order
