--Middle School Cycling Program Concludes With Festival --
The Middle Cross FALL BIKE FEST is scheduled Wednesday November 11 at Manhattan Middle School in Boulder. The mid-day festival takes advantage of the Veteran’s Day Holiday when Boulder Valley schools are not in session and is the final event of the fall Middle Cross program.
Activities scheduled for the 3 hour event include rides, clinics, food, prizes and a Middle Cross race that caps a season of training and prep races. All activities are free and open to the public.
Several high level competitive cyclists are slated to conduct clinics and activities for the students including Rebecca Much of the Subaru-HUDZ Cyclocross Team, Mike Friedberg of Mafia Racing and members of the Clif Bar Development team.
Middle Cross (MCX) is a program for middle school aged youth and is currently open to all BVSD middle school students, boys and girls of all riding levels who want to ride a bike with friends in a fun and supportive setting. Students join a Bike Club at their BVSD school to practice cycling skills as well as participate in various cycling clinics and race events. There is no charge to participate and most events offer bikes and helmets for students to use if they don't have one. The program’s goal is to promote cycling for recreation and fitness.
Middle Cross organizers have been offering clinics and scrimmages throughout September and October leading to this final event. The FALL BIKE FEST is open to all BVSD middle school students interested in all levels of recreational cycling, from beginner to advanced. Middle Cross riders must attend with their bike club or have a signed waiver to ride the course.
