It’s that time of year again, folks! Time to get that mid week eye-bleed done and in the legs. As mentioned, there has been a huge response to having a ‘working man’s edition’ of the Wednesday Worlds ride. These will commence next Wednesday.
This said, note a couple of things. These rides are entirely unsanctioned fun rides with no specific organization running them other than some passionate folks who enjoy cyclocross. Some of these folks have worked directly with the Parks and Rec department over the last 2 years to get permission/permits to utilize land (e.g. specific parks) in order to allow for the required space to have the group ride. Over the years these rides have become huge and by breaking up the ride into smaller groups as we’re doing this year, we are reducing impact, park use frequency and doing so at off peak hours to minimize any sort of conflict with other park users. Further, there are rules of park use which we will repeat to the group and pass on to newbies to ensure we minimize any environmental impact. Lastly, at the core of it all is our respect for other park users. We will reach out to those enjoying the park while we are and ensure all is copacetic.
Get yer hup hup on!
