Spring Crits Continue


We’ve had luck on our side with the weather so far this year and that’s making riding and racing outside a very doable thing. This weekend get your crisp weather gear on and head out to ride. See details below for a few options in our area.


Kenosha Velosport Spring Training Criteriums – This spring series continues with race #2. The course is perfect for beginners and seasoned racers getting back to the road after a long indoor season. It’s not too technical, other than one somewhat tight corner. For series information, click here.

St Patrick’s Day Ride – With the great weather we’ve been having, the St Patrick’s Day ride is your ticket to a scenic outdoor adventure! There are 16, 20 and 36 mile ride loops, so a little something for everyone. For post ride festivities, they’ll have the Acoustic Soul Generations band playing. Come out for this non-competitive and fun ride. For ride information, click here.

Coming up:

Skyway Classic Criterium Series – Attention all new racers! Come out to this annual bike race series which is designed to give you lots of experience in bike racing, but without all the stress. Its four days of racing, which is plenty to get you immersed in the sport. If you’re interested in racing, this series is a must. For series information, click here.

CWEC’s Clinic Series Event #2 – In conjunction with the Skyway Series, the CWEC will have a course recon event. Riders should meet at the Edge Athletes Lounge and a group will ride down to the race course. For information on the clinic, click here.

Plan Ahead:

Women’s Track Cycling Clinic Track racing begins mid-May at the Ed Rudolph velodrome. If you’re interested in racing or learning about track racing, this clinic is perfect. You’ll learn the basics of the track and riding a fixed gear bike. The clinic also includes some mock racing. Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 23. For information, click here.

Have a great weekend!
