Training Race

Hello, Ladies!

The first collegiate road racing weekend is just around the corner—the weekend of the 23rd—so it’s time to test the legs! We’ll do a practice race this Saturday at noon, meeting at the Sample Gates. 

Anyone interested in racing should come check it out—the more the merrier! If you’ve never raced before, this is your chance to see what it’s like. And if you are an experienced racer, here’s a chance to remind yourself what racing feels like. Regardless of your experience level, it’s an opportunity to get out there with your IU teammates for a great workout.

We’ll do a lap of the Forest (down Bean Blossom), which means familiar roads so no one gets lost, as this is not a no-drop ride...but we will all ride out together to the starting point. Attacking is welcome, as is teamwork…so come ready to race! And of course, if you have a longer ride scheduled that day, you can always add on afterward. Saturday’s forecast looks okay so far, but if we are surprised with bad conditions that day, we’ll reschedule for Sunday at noon.

 If you have any questions, feel free to email me at randikcox@gmail.com. And please pass this on to anyone who might be interested! Come on out!
