Looking to take a break from all of the Christmas festivities, then come to the 2011 Annual Bilenky Junkyard Cyclocross on Sunday, December 18, 2011 from 10am to 4pm.
First started as a fun race, it has evolved into friendly competition. Held in a junkyard the course offers a range of surface conditions from paved to dirt single track so the course is a challenge for Cyclocross and Mountain Bikes. Along with some equally challenging barricades: ramps, tunnels, bridges, hurdles, running sections, and a seesaw. Weather is also a factor; the surface could be muddy, frozen, or covered in snow. What makes this a truly unique experience is that it’s held in a junkyard creating some rather unique course markers and adding the chance of flat tires due to debris.
Over the years the number of racers has increased and this year to improve safety and increase speed Bilenky Cycle Works is holding smaller heats to avoid bottlenecks at the obstacles. Which means a full day of racing for racers and spectators alike.
Make sure to bring plenty of cash; Chewy's Food Truck will be on site throughout the day providing breakfast and lunch. And of course there will be beer.
To find out more use this link to go to the Bilenky Cyclocross Facebook event page, you can also register as a racer here. At a cost of $10, if register in advance, this will be the most fun you can have on two wheels.
