Moms and Dads: You know you want to give your little dumplin’ that extra HUP this season, so why don’t you bring your kids on down to the Paul McCarthy/Blue Sky Velo’s kids cyclocross clinic and let ‘em get some proper tutelage!
My friend Amy Dombrowski (Crank Brothers/Ibis) multi-time U23 cyclocross national champion and all around good gal will team up with yours truly to teach the ‘sport of the changing leaves’ to the youngsters. We’re stoked! Here’s all you need to know:
When: Sunday August 7th 2011 – 9AM to 12 Noon
Where: Rogers Grove Park, Longmont CO (info and map)
Registration: contact pjmac7 at y a h o o dot com
What will be learned: This is an entry level clinic designed for first timers. There will be an overview of cyclocross but mostly tutorials and skills instruction. The kids will be on the bikes as much as possible.
What your child needs: The child should have a mountain bike (with no bar ends) or cyclocross bike, comfortable shoes (or clip less pedals if they’re on them already) and a HELMET (mandatory). Snacks and drinks will be provided by Blue Sky Velo but feel free to bring extras for yourself or specialty snacks if your child has any allergies.
Should parents stay: Yes, the child should have a parent accompany them.
Ages: If your child can pedal, they can attend.
Hope you and yours can attend!
