FLC Cycling Update from Hagen: Fall Blaze, Bikes N Bands, CX Season, FLC Cycling 20th Anniv. Jerseys

Hey CXers,

Looks like some folks are getting their CX on already. If you do practice up at the college please steer clear of Football and Soccer practice areas – they are out there almost all hours of the day until school starts. Playground and Hagenville are good places to be.

FLC Cycling has boat loads of events going on this Fall. 

First up is the Bikes and Bands Bash/Durango Fall Blaze. This year the annual cycling team scholarship fundraiser, the Fall Blaze, will be a part of the Bikes and Bands Bash. It is produced by the Durango Daybreak Rotary and the FLC Cycling team as a visionary event promoting cycling and doing good in the community. It’ll be a full day of music and cycling related events (Including a CX race). The beauty of it is that you can do the Fall Blaze (37 or 60 mile options) and still get back in time for the CX race in the afternoon for free as Fall Blaze participants. Blaze riders will also get the Blaze lunch and free beer and beverages included as usual plus the t-shirt and goody bag. There is also 2 days left to order the 2014 Fall Blaze jersey.

All the details for the Blaze including on-line registration and the jersey order can be found at: http://www.fortlewis.edu/cycling/DurangoFallBlaze.aspx

The Bikes and Bands Bash will have $10 tickets on sale at the door and pre-sales through FLC Cycling, Durango Devo and Trails 2000. Lunch, beverages and beer will be available for purchase. There’ll be the Durango Devo/FLC Team relay, a MTB race on hate CX course, a CX race, a Team Relay (costumes strongly encouraged), a ghost ride/huffy toss competition, vintage bike show and the FLC Cycling 20th anniversary celebration and exhibition. Should be a blast of a day for the whole family! The Bikes and Bash is a fundraiser for the FLC Cycling Team, Durango Devo, Trails 2000 and Rotary International.
