Cyclocross-dress Jamboree and Off-Season Training Ride This Weekend!

October 25, 2007


We hope you are all enjoying this nice mild autumn we are having here and have been able to take advantage of it! This weekend is the one we have all been waiting for, the grand finale of Mocktoberfest: the third sort of annual Cyclocross-dress Jamboree and Training Season kick-off ride!

This unique and prestigious event is a celebration of cyclocross and Halloween all at the same time. This year’s derby will take place on Saturday evening, October 27. We will meet at the shop at 7:30 for the pre-race meeting and warm-up. The course will be open for previewing at 8:45 with the official race starting at 9:00 pm. This event is as much a spectacle as it is anything and the only stipulation upon entering the “race” is that one must be costumed for Halloween. We are looking forward to seeing you all this Saturday at 7:30!

Switching gears a little bit, the following day is your opportunity to start the off-season with a bang! We will begin our off-season road rides on Sunday, October 28 at 1 pm from the shop. These rides will be three to four hours in length and will be at a steady “training” type pace, in the 17-19 mph range. They will be held each Sunday through the fall and winter and will be led by members of the MOB Cycling Team. To commemorate the beginning of the “training season” Charles will be preparing his famous bratwurst hot off the grill, complete with beverages and all the trimmings, for riders upon their return to the shop. This will be a spectacular way to close Mocktoberfest for the year as well as begin the training season, so do not miss this great autumn ride.

Thanks and we’ll see you this weekend!
