    CX race in the park.............

    We're having our second cyclo-cross race in the Bent Creek Park this Sunday. The first one last year was VERY wet and according to those who do that sort of thing the ideal conditions were had but this year it may be much dryer and faster so come out and spectate or race.........it should be a good time.

    Are you open to the idea of doing an open-category Singlespeed category in the Bs race? This would let Cat 1/2 racers have the opportunity to race more than race.

    This is purely a selfish request. When I race cx I like to race twice

    Two categories......A and B (men & women), choose your "weapon" (geared, SS, fixed) and duke it out.

    Not at all...........you could ride the B race SS and hop on your geared bike and ride the A. Put all us mere mortals to shame........

    The forecast shows a 90% of beautiful weather, a 75% chance of drinking FB beer and a whopping 110% chance of blowing snot bubbles and bleeding from your eyes for 30 minutes. I am so there!

    There's a FB site for people who grew up in the Bent Creek neighborhood. New entry of pics from a former caretaker. You folks CC and SAS are riding trails that used to be here:

    The posted map link is a bit "off". The park entrance is after Foxcroft. There will be signs.
