Road Bike Racing this weekend in Avon, MN!

Get out to help or cheer on the MN road racers! Contact Jim (info below).

As most of you know, this weekend is the Spunk Lake RR in Avon. It is a 1 wave event from 9:30 until 2:30. We are in need of some corner marshals, as well as some people for set up and tear down. I have every corner covered by police but an additional person waving riders thru really helps the flow of the event.

If those who can help could reply back to me, it would help me plan out the corners in advance.

Thanks, Jim

Thanks for your help ladies!! Girl Power!

As a reminder there is a meeting for the Race Committees this Wednesday night. Check your emails for details!

Monticello Trail Work

Passing along this info............

Folks, we had a really nice turnout this Sunday at Monticello for trail work. The trails are nearly ready for riding but we probably need 1 more good day of work to have them completely ready. We will be meeting this Sunday at 8 am at the North entrance of the camp (on Cty 39 between Cameron Ave and 110th Street) to finish the 15 mile loop. Once this loop is marked and cleared, River City Cycles in Monticello plans on maintaining these trails year round. They also plan on adding more miles of
single-track and some other “features”.

The really great news is that the City of Monticello has ownership of the park, so the hunting and other activities that used to interfere with riding will be minimized.

If you can make it, even for a few hours, your help will be appreciated!!!

Thanks trail workers

Last Wednesday and Thursday trail work was conducted on the N. Loop and the Plum Creek/Riverbluffs single track trails. Volunteers showed up and a lot of work was conducted. We realized that Wed group was a true testament of the desire to keep the trails in good shape so we can have great riding all year round, so I took monies from the Coffee Sales and bought another industrial weed whipper to use Thursday at Plum Creek. So, Thank You to all of those who support the trails by buying coffee at Fitzharris Bike and Sport and Revolution Cycle and Ski.

The trails should be in great condition, so get out and ride! After you have a cup of joe!
