Waldo Bicycle Festival on Saturday 6/11. Lots of cool thing to connect with.
Kansas City's Ride the Fountains Tours on Sunday 6/12. Amazing ride.
Big races in the neighborhood. Here's the breakdown of the Tour of Kansas City
There's no way to describe the awesomeness of the Dirty Kanza. Check out the results for the varied distances
Coming up this week:
LifeBalance Sports 10k Time Trial on Thursday 6/9
Missouri Mountain Bike Championship on Sunday 6/12
A 5K Time Trial on the Kansas Speedway. This mini-olympics is contested by the very focused and those not-so.
Easterly winds reduced the times a bit compared to other years.
RESULTS Oh, and we spotted at least one curious results. Sometimes these are revised ....
This great race has been around for quite a few years. It evolved from an early Blue River Bicycle Club event near Liberty, MO to the current full 10km course at Gardner (slightly different than the traditional/current LifeBalance track).
Great support from local law enforcement. A day with low winds. Perfect
Need a fun and challenging ride for the Memorial Day Weekend. Check out the Tour of Kansas City Grand Fondo on Monday May 31st.
Starts at New Longview. Great after party.
The next couple of weekends offer up some fantastic events in the region; However, riders (and fans) have had to make some choices about which to attend.
Date conflicts for these events came about for a variety of reasons (we won't debate them here), but several riders we have spoken to have expressed frustration. That said, it's a healthy sign for our area that we have some choices.
