Here at BikeTown we couldn’t agree more. We love riding our bikes and want to help as many people as we can love riding their bikes, too.

Shotwell Crit Tonight and Short Track Race on Friday

This is the third Thursday of the month which means it's Crit night at Shotwell Stadium. For all who would like to play along, we will meet at 6:00 at Shotwell parking lot and do a few laps for a warm-up and then gather up and turn on a little speed. This is a fun and exciting way to practice some bike handling skills and will make you a stronger and faster rider. All skill levels are welcome to come and participate.

On Friday night, the second short track style race will be held. This consists of about a 5 minute lap around a course set out at Buck Creek Trails. We ride for twenty minutes and then complete two more laps. This was tons of fun for all who showed up last time and was great to watch, even if you were not riding. Bring the kids and a bike and have a ball watching all who come out. Last time we had several children who rode and they did great! If they can do it surely you can, too! Meet at 6:00 and do a lap or two to warm up. We will start at 6:30. We will use the entrance directly to the south of the environmental lab rather than the normal gate to the north of the lab.

Of course, if you have any questions or need more specific directions, feel free to give us a call or come on in!
