We had a very successful Roger’s Harvest Ride with over 200 people signed up! A huge thanks to everyone that helped make this event a success!
Two World Cups and five races later and I’m finally back from my whirlwind trip of the USA and am looking forward to being back on the group rides this week! So come on out because ‘cross is definitely here! Please note that we’ve moved all the evening rides a little earlier to compensate for our quickly shortening days!
On that note our own race, Velocicross, is fast approaching (October 8 and 9) and we still need lots of volunteers to help make it happen. Interested in helping out? You can sign up right here! There are plenty of positions where you can volunteer AND still race!
