Time to put together your weekend plans.
Whether you like cyclocross or not, you’ve got to be excited and inspired by the season of Team S&M CX cyclocross rider Clara Honsinger. She just keeps getting better and better. Last weekend at a very challenging UCI World Cup race she went from a start of around 40th place to finish 19th. 19th! That’s against the very best racers in the world. And she was the 2nd place Under-23 rider. On Saturday Sunday, Honsinger will look to close out her big season with a strong showing in the U23 race at the World Championships in Denmark. If you’re not lucky enough to be there in person, roll over to Breadwinner Cafe on Williams Avenue where they’ll open early to see the live feed.
And that’s just one of the great ideas we’ve got for you. Check out all of our upcoming event picks below… [Read more…]

Welcome to the weekend.
If you can get over the creeping unease about climate change-induced weird weather, you can relax and enjoy this mild winter we’re having. It should be dry and maybe even sunny this weekend. And as luck would have it, there are plenty of great rides and events to choose from.
Here’s our menu for the weekend, specially selected for you…
What this season lacks in light and warmth it more than makes up for in holiday spirit.
Time to make plans for the weekend. There’s so much to do among our wonderful community of fellow bike lovers that you shouldn’t let the cold and dark keep you from joining in the fun.
