Located under the Ski Hill lights of Centennial Park, this weekly cyclocross series is a skills clinic, a training circuit, and race practice all rolled into one. Every week a different course is set up for you to come and get your 'cross on. People of all ages, abilities and genders are welcome! Our friends at Bateman's Bicycle Company will be on hand if you're looking for bits of gear, supplies, or maybe even a new ride.
Course is best tackled on a dedicated CX bike, but even an old mountain bike will work just fine.
Bring your timing chip from Midweek Crit or receive a new one at your first session. You'll be able to see how you did in training and the end of night race. Results will include accurate GPS representation of the course each week!
Registration opens at 6pm. We get rolling at 6:30pm and go until 8:30pm or when everyone is too tired to continue.
All group ride attendees must bring a valid UCI/CP license and wear a helmet while on the bike. Always adhere to the Highway Traffic Act and listen to your ride leader.
