We super lucky to live in an area where racing is so abundant. Through out the year there are so many different races put on all over East Texas, you could practically race nearly every single weekend within a couple hundred miles of DFW. Organizations like Terra Firma, DORBA, TMBRA, and Spinistry, just to name a few, work very hard to put together not only competitive events, but FUN RACES for those riders whose sole interest is to have a good time!

Join us out at Rowlett Creek Preserve to get "the scoop" on how to be prepared for your first race and/or get tips on how to refine your race prep! Experienced racers, Lisa Uranga and Lorinda Putter, will be sharing their knowledge on all things racing, from figuring out what race to enter, how to register, what it takes to prep your bike, gear, and nutrition, training on and off the bike, how to get a proper warm-up, race strategies, and MORE! We will also be doing practice drills on your bike after our morning "classroom" discussion. Absolutely no race experience is needed to attend, only a positive attitude and a willingness to learn! For those interested in cyclocross, stay with us after the clinic and we will practice a few key maneuvers and drills to help get you ready for a super fun cross season ahead!
