Women’s Weekend at Rays Indoor Mountain Bike Park – I attended this event last year and had so much fun and learned a ton. Pro mountain biker, Leigh Donovan will lead a team of instructors to help you with everything from rock gardens to the pump track and even jumps (jumps not required). This year’s event is March 15-17. For details click here http://www.raysmtb.com/mke/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=56&Itemid=89.
Half Acre’s Gaper’s Block Crit Series – What better way to figure out this racing thing than practice, practice, practice and that’s what the Gapers Block Crits are all about. The women’s 4 field has added more slots. If you haven’t signed up yet, get going! Click here for information on Half Acre events and contact information http://www.halfacrecycling.org/.

Hillsboro Roubaix – This is usually the big kickoff race for the road racing season. It’s a few weeks earlier this year, but the course will still be tough and the competition tougher! It’s a bit of a hike, so plan ahead. For race details click here https://www.bikereg.com/Net/17993.
ABD Indoor Timetrial Race #3 –This is the final indoor race of this series – time to head outside after this one! This course will be a 9K hill climb, great for testing your power to weight number. For race information click here http://www.ambikerace.com/2013/flyers/TT13_flyer.pdf.
