Fun Event Sun. 1.24.10: Cross’d Bite! – A winter cross race at the slags

Cross’d Bite!

A winter cross race at the slags!  Come out for an hour of riding, running, and bunny hopping in the cold and hopefully snow (or icy mud as the case may be).  Meet and poke fun at riders wearing multiple layers of spandex to keep warm!  Featuring some free icy cold ‘sports beverages’ (read: BEER) provided by Pennsylvania’s own Straub Brewery!  So add an extra challenge to the day and stay “hydrated” with the green bottles….or not.  Maybe save that part for the victory lap.
Cash and prizes for the winners and a potluck to re-energize afterwards.

Win awesome swag from our sweet sponsors:  Over The Bar Bicycle Café, Thick Bikes, Iron City Bikes, DirtRag, & Straub Brewing Co.
