Wednesday Night ‘Cross Practice!

Wednesday night cyclocross practice is back! Bring your ‘cross bike over to Daniels Park in Cedar Rapids and throw down some practice laps from 5pm until dusk. Ride at your own pace on a marked course that features some beefy elevation spikes, fast descents, and barriers to help hone your skills. Whether you’re preparing for the racing season or just ‘cross curious,’ this series is for you! Practice will be held every Wednesday evening through October, but will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain and/or muddy conditions as to not damage the park grass.

We’ll have our fleet of youth CX bikes on site every week and available for any kid 7-12 years of age to share. *Kids must have a helmet and must be with a parent. Feel free to message us with questions. See you out there!

Fix-A-Flat Workshop with Birds of a Feather This Wednesday!

Flat tires can happen and leave you stranded. We want to empower you with the knowledge to fix the flat, get yourself home, and do it with style! There will be a demonstration, hands on stations, and plenty of time for discussion. You will leave this clinic knowing what tools you will need and how to use them! Feel free to bring your bike or front wheel, but it’s not required. This all-women event will be hosted by Andrea Cohen at World of Bikes. No dudes allowed. Light refreshments will be provided. The entire series is free to attend, but we are requesting that attendees help build community for other women by bringing a hygiene item or cash to be donated to the local Waypoint Services Madge Phillips Center Shelter. PLEASE RSVP so we can get a head count. See you there!
