Velo Girls & Cyclocross Clinic Action

With the Cyclocross race season growing ever so near, more clinic action is being reported. Velo Girls is on their game for getting all riders fired up for Cross season. I tracked down some info on a few upcoming Cross activities with help from Lorri Lee Lown. Now is the time for the Cross specific training to begin, or at least time to start thinking about it...

Velo Girls Coaching Services has sent out some info I would like to pass along regarding some Cross Clinics and Cross specific training.

Be sure and try to make one of these VeloGirls clinics, as one of the instructors will be John Funke. Mr. Funke is super skilled and is one of Nor-Cal's fastest riders when on form. He also is one of the NCNCA's best Cross instructors.

Here is the info VeloGirls sent out.....
It's August, which means it's time to start thinking about cyclocross.
Dirty Velo Girls Ride @ Arastradero-- every Thursday at 6:00pm at Arastradero Open Space Preserve in Palo Alto. This is an awesome, girls-only dirt ride appropriate for mountain bikes and cyclocross bikes. See http://www.velogirls.com/calendar.phpfor details.
