Family/Youth Group Ride August 6th @ the North Loop

The Mid MN Cycling Club will be holding another group mountain bike ride next Thursday Aug. 6th at 5:30pm.  Meet at the trail head of the North loop/Jail Trail and we will split into groups to accommodate all ability levels.

If you or your son/daughter are planning on racing this year and can't make the group ride let me know and I will get you information on the jerseys.  

The following week we will start regular practice.  

If you have any questions regarding the event please touch base with Mike.
