It's the most wonderful time of the year!
Cyclocross Clinics and training rides begin on Sept 2nd. The Localcycling.com and Boulevard folks put on three slightly different sessions: "Saturday 9/2 we'll be doing a slightly advanced session. Noon start at Herman Laird Park in Shawnee. NOTE: we won't stay in the park, but we'll ride short road sections to other nearby venues for focused drills. Expect some off camber work with kick pushes, hard up/quick turns, stairs, possibly some 'hopping and sand'. Bring $5 donation (for the equipment fund) beer after.
Wednesday September 6th our Women's Clinic. Taught by women, basics to intermediate skills. Herman Laird Park 5:30PM
Some snacks provided by the Womens Racing Association (and beer!)
Wednesday September 13th. Beginner Clinic for all. Mount/dismount, basic bike set up, how to have fun and train. 5:30PM Start at Herman Laird Park. Beer." Updates on the Facebook page

We're watching the Leawood Park practice course (venue for the Boxing Day event). Currently the course is in need of a haircut after the recent heavy rains.
We'll have some updates asap on other organized practices.
