It’s been a while, but the WCC CX Social is back for 2022. This event is open to everyone in the club, whether you have ever done cyclo-cross (cx) before or not, it doesn’t matter. It’s a fun gathering where we run some skills clinics, have some baked goods as snacks and just have a good time. Oh, and we’ll run a couple little “races” around the course that we build in the park. We’ll plan for the social to start by 10 am and run until 3 pm, but you can come and go as you like.
The important thing is to come out, socialize and have some fun in the park on your bike. This event is great for the whole family, kids will have a blast riding with each other around the course. We might even have some local bike shops out with a tent and some things on display.
Here’s a picture from 2018. It was a great turnout, hopefully many of you will come by and chat/ride. You don’t need a specific cyclo-cross bike. Any gravel, mountain bike or even road bike with some wide tires will do.
We’ll build a course in this general area, just north of the Brubacher House at the end of Frank Tompa Dr. The parking lot there is very small, so we encourage people to bike or use the university Parking lot “x” just down the road. The university website says lot x is free to use on the weekends.
The course will be contained in the purple area and parking lot x is highlighted in yellow. We’ll have the club tent, snacks, bike racks setup in the grass just to the side of the parking lot by the Brubacher House. Bring some lawn chairs of your own or a blanket to lay on the grass.
If you have cycling friends that belong to another Ontario Cycling club invite them out. Anyone covered by Ontario Cycling insurance is welcome to join the fun.
Looking forward to seeing everyone.
