Forks 15k Road Race

Well, the races seasons are getting underway!  Two weeks ago, a few ladies laced up their sneakers and ran the St. Pat's 4-miler in Binghamton.  Great job Marsha and Tiffany!  We hear that a few personal bests were achieved!


This Sunday some MIM-ers plan to run the Forks 15k road race.  Come join Marsha, Tiffany, Jackie, Steph, and Delana for some fun on March 25th at 2pm!  By that time in the afternoon the sun is sure to come out - right?  Check out the run on the Triple Cities Runner's Club website: http://triplecitiesrunnersclub.org/.  


Don't forget to sign up for the Beginner & Intermediate Road Racing Skills Clinic on April 1st! Here's the link: https://www.bikereg.com/Net/15633This clinic is ideal for recreational riders or triathletes (ages 10 and up) who want to gain the skills and confidence you need to ride and race in a group! We'll cover all aspects of bike fit, pre-ride safety check, group riding strategies, technique and more. You will need to bring your bike, your helmet, proper clothing, and if you are age 10-18, a parent must be present for the entire course.  The program is geared towards preparing you to join your local USAC road cycling club, and preparing for a road race, but is also a great learning experience on its own. This is a great way to make sure you have the basics down so you can make the most of your experience riding with a group, club, or race team.  Our main instructor is Mike Jones, a former USA Cycling Pro rider of the Heathnet team.  We will also have several experienced local racers including Vanessa McCaffery & Mike Grygus who will ride along with the groups, answer any questions you may have and give their advice to each rider.  Clinic begins at 10am followed by a group practice ride within the roads of Chenango Valley State Park.  snacks and drinks provided, please dress appropiately for riding outdoors, bring your bike, helmet and water bottle!  This event supported by a grant from the New York State Bicycle Racing Association (NYSBRA).


Can't wait for cycling season?  Pre-reg now for one of our first local races, Check Your Legs! Here's the link to registration: https://www.bikereg.com/Net/15447.  Many MIM'ers will be racing with our friends in Garrattsville on Saturday, April 21st.
