Gearhead Cyclocross at Village Creek, Sunday, Nov. 4

Sunday, October 21, 2012

Chloe made this neat trailer after the Killough's Cyclocross Clinic last weekend.  We hope to have many BBC and Wynne folks enter the Gearhead Cyclocross race on Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012.  Registration begins at 7:30, it's $20 to enter and $10 for a one day USA Cycling pass.  The day starts at 9 am, here's the Gearhead link:  There is no pre-registration, fyi.

Cyclocross Clinic and Gearhead Cyclocross at Village Creek

I am so proud of this photo....the dismount obstacle.....

Here we all are, there's Stan, Jackie, Kyle, Kara and over there
is Chloe with her IPAD ready to film...I'll get her cyclocross
trailer on here soon (when I can find some wifi)

Lemme say that's one hill...Here's Kara caring
her bike (which is Cecelia's Mongoose).
Where is Cecelia you ask?  She decided this type
race isn't for she had a huge Octoberfest
spread in her kitchen waiting on us afterwards.

Notice the way Kyle carries his bike up that
steep hill....

A giant shout out to Kyle and Cecelia Killough who hosted a fabulous cyclocross clinic at their blueberry farm east of Wynne last Saturday.  Kyle had a 1/2 mile loop set up (I'm guessing here) that had a dismount and get back on your bike, 3 logs or obstacles to jump over while on your bike then up a hill over planks while carrying your bike.  I tell you it was one workout and Kara and I can report we both have some kind of bruise on the inside of our right leg...must have been something about the dismount I'd say.

Gearhead is hosting a Cyclocross event at Village Creek Sunday, Nov. 4.  I bet it'll start at 9 am, it's not on racesonline so you register when you get there.  Jason, from Gearhead, has a guy from Jonesboro that has a World Master Cyclocross (I'm sure I'm not saying that right) title that will be setting up the course that is to be similar to European Cyclocross courses at Village Creek.

Thanks to Kyle for setting up a great challenging cyclocross course and to Cecelia for having brats, German potato salad, german chocolate cake as well as some German beer.  We all had a great time.  If you missed it just let them know and you can train out there I bet, until Nov. 4.

I cannot wait for Nov. 4.  I think it'll be a great, memorable event! -Keeli

Road Bike Ride this Saturday

Monday, October 1, 2012

Happy Anniversary Kyle and Cecelia!  I saw this in our church bulletin!  What a fun couple to hang with at bike rides and bike races.  And an early birthday shout out to John B. Shepherd on Saturday, Jackie's on Monday and Becca Jackson's on Tuesday...that's a ton of BBC birthdays and anniversaries I might say!

Ok, I am volunteering to do the Turkey Trot at the Wynne School's Health Fair on Saturday from 10-2.  A far as I've been told, this is walking/running around the track Saturday.  Who would like to volunteer to host Saturday at say, 2:30?  If there are no Wynne people, I can host a 2:30 ride from Birdeye.  I'd say go for a 25-30 mile ride and let's talk about the upcoming Gearhead Cyclocross event at Village Creek on Sunday, Nov. 4.  They don't take early entries, you enter the day of the event, just fyi.  I know that Adam Leslie, park interpreter, will be helping organize the cyclocross.  I cannot wait for the event, I hope it's great weather Nov. 4.

Since it's going to rain Saturday, I'm putting the brakes on a ride Saturday!  See ya'll next week! -Keeli
