The weekend’s warm weather should have you dreaming of the upcoming road racing season. The season is closer than you think, with spring races coming in just a few weeks. Have you made a list of your goals for the season? Do you know how to plan and train for your goals? Help is here with a season planning clinic put on by the CWEC. See the details below for the clinic and other fun cycling activities.


Winter Bike Swap – In its 6th year, this annual bike swap offers up a bit of a twist to the traditional bike swap. It’s held at Jaks Tap in the west loop and there’ll be bikes, gear, socializing and networking with a good representation from all parts of the cycling community.

CWEC Clinic Series Event #1 – Looking to have a successful cycling season? That takes goals and planning. If you’re looking for help in the process, attend this “Planning a Season” clinic tomorrow at Ancien Cycles. The clinic will begin at 3PM. For information, click here.

ABD Indoor Time Trial Series Race #3 – It’s back to a flat 10K course, which will be great for those able to push a big gear and might be challenged a bit by going uphill. Keep building your fitness and your overall points in the MATT’s series! For race information, click here.

Intent Indoor Time Trial Series #4 – This is the fourth of five indoor races in this series.

Event #4 will feature a 20K course with rolling hills. For more information on the event, click here.

Plan Ahead:

Women’s Weekend at Ray’s – This year’s event is the first weekend in March. Reserve your spot now for a fun weekend of indoor mountain biking with coaching and tips from Leigh Donovan and her team.
