Barely Legal Vegan!
Hey all y'all!
It's the beginning of September, and for me that means Veganniversary! It's my vegan anniversary, and this year is my 19th year being vegan, yay me! =)
Cyclocross season is also about to explode!
OA Vic is leading Learn To Race clinics each Saturday morning, we meet at 9am behind OBB. It's free, and people of all levels are welcome to come out, and learn new skills, or work on current ones. We hit a few spots that are handy for practicing specific skills, and usually end up at Beacon Hill Park where we set up a mini course with lots of tight corners and barriers to practice on. We'll also have several guest instructors! Confirmed is island 'cross star Drew MacKenzie on Sept 26th, and MTB superstar Alison Sydor on Oct 17th. Downhilling legend Geoff Pendrel and cross-country phenom Craig Ritchey (rumored this Saturday) are also lined up as guest instructors, plus a few other potentials...dates TBA.
There are also going to be four 'Cross Mini Comps - very short timed competitions based on specific skills. This Saturday (Sept 12th) is the Sand Pit Invitational - we'll set up a challenging course, and those traveling at speed will definitely experience some 'Tokyo Drift'! Next is the Whirly Whirl World Championships, which is Sept 26th.
All the details on the Clinics and 'Cross Mini Comps are on the new OA Victoria site here: http://victoria.organicathlete.org/cyclocross. We also have links to the Wednesday night race practices, the 'Cross on the Rock series, and other useful local 'cross info.
Finally, a reminder that i'm on Twitter (@vegancyclist) and to keep an eye on local 'cross details, keep an eye out for #vcx. Here are my latest tweets, see ya out there in the mud!
