https://www.bicycle-artform.org/

It's the weekend of July 25.

I like doing a race in northern Wisconsin the weekend of August 3.

Then there is the Dairyland Dare the weekend of August 10.

There is no way I can do all 3, but I can swing 2 of the 3.

Which 2?

A big YES,

As it is just down the road from me, I will be all over the events (as much as I can afford). We seem to have a few crit racing events around here with the Tour of Reidsville, the Carolina crit(39 yrs running) and now the crit championships in High Point for the next 2 yrs.

I miss the Cirque that we used to have every year in Greensboro, those were fantastic ! For some strange reason, things don't work out and I can't make the new location in VA.


SWAP meets too !

Closer to me than Cirque (neither close), but either or both are a possibility. I'm thinking Amtrak.

I'd like to come up for Dairyland, but dang that's long drive from AL.
