It’s getting to be about that time of year … time to glue the Dugasts (or Challenges or Vittorias or what have you); and time to come out to Sugarhouse Park to fine tune your technique.

It’s time once again for the Sugarhouse Park Cyclocross Clinic, presented by Contender Bicycles.

Thursdays, beginning Sept 23, 5:30-7:30 pm, until Nov. 4 (8 weeks total).

Location: Sugarhouse Park, Salt Lake City. 2100 S. 1500 E. Map is on the flyer.

Schedule: Meet at the NW Corner of the Park. Barrier Practice for 30-60 minutes, followed by laps around the park perimeter.

Goals: Learn something about cyclocross techniques; how to go over barriers, run up hills, and ride a skinny-tired bike off the pavement. Self-professed expert crossers will conduct the clinics and distribute nuggets of wisdom.

Cyclocross and/or Mountain Bikes are welcome. Be cool, sell your capri pants and your fixie, and buy a ‘cross bike.

Rules: Bikes are absolutely prohibited off-pavement anytime except during the clinic! Violation will result in us losing use of the Park. This is a promise. Do not ride on the grass except for Thursdays, during the clinic. Clinic participants are expected to police themselves and their colleagues.
