The Dog Days of Summer are upon us, and with the calendar pages turning to August and September comes cyclocross clinics for brushing up on rusty skills. ’Cross clinics can help riders of all skill levels, but perhaps the most important of these are beginner clinics that introduce riders to the sport and provide assistance with challenging nuances like remounting after barriers and shouldering the bike. These events provide a cost-effective way of introducing riders to the sport and helping them feel comfortable for their first races.

This season, Cyclocross Magazine is offering free publicity for free cyclocross clinics on our website and social media. We have long been strong proponents of increasing participation in the sport and this is our way of helping and saying “thank you” to the ’crossers who volunteer their time and knowledge to help get other folks excited about the sport.

If you are interested in spreading the word about your event, please send an e-mail with information to news [ at ] The best way to help us out is to provide key details in a press release form. Details should include:

  • Date and location
