#crossiscoming and there is no better time than now to dust off the cyclocross skills. New papa Jeremy Powers is going to be in the Philadelphia area for a special Q&A session (diaper changing advice?) and cyclocross clinic today and tomorrow. Both events benefit the Cadence Youth Cycling program.
If you are in the Philadelphia area, there is still time to register for these events. There is also a special deal for multiple registrations for the ’cross clinic.
The fun kicks off on Friday, July 7th at Firth & Wilson Transport Cycles with a Q&A social at that will feature a food truck, beer courtesy of Lagunitas Brewing, and a DJ. $10 to attend – more information can be found here.
On Saturday, July 8th, Powers will lead a cyclocross clinic at Sly Fox Brewery. This non-competitive clinic will cover skills such as dismounts, remounts, race starts, and handling, and will include race simulations. $275 dollars to attend – more information can be found here. Sponsorship opportunities are still available – contact [email protected] to discuss.
