Swandrome Cyclocross

September 10, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

This is an annual family friendly event with one of the longest continually running cyclocross races in the country on the trails of the Swandrome atop Mt. Pleasant.  While there are numerous categories based on age, sex, and types of bikes, for some of us the real “feature events” are the little kids races. We have everything from tykes on Strider push-bikes up through real geared bikes with distances appropriate for each group.   (Note: kids races are Free)
We have minimal prizes and put entry fee money into food and drink that is available for all racers and spectators. This makes for a very social event with a good vibe that keeps racers and families hanging out to support each other through all events.
While the course has been laid out and relatively manicured for the whole summer, there will be course prep to do as we get closer to race day. We will announce volunteer work days in the last 2 weeks before the event for mowing, trimming low branches on some trails, and putting in stakes and tape to define the race course.  On race day we will need a half-dozen volunteers to manage registration, pick results, and manage the different course markings for kids races.
Note that we welcome people to ride (walk or run) on the many trails of the Swandrome at any time, so come up and practice and bring kids up to get them used to riding and psyched for the event.  If we can get a bunch of families to turn out on some weeknights such that we reach a “critical mass” then it will be even more fun for families, as kids will have time with friends to look forward to each week.
