We’ll be hanging out on the back deck facing the mountain. Such a beautiful setting, and to top it off, live music starts at 7:00 pm.

Chris Garges will be running a cyclocross clinic at Upper Saucon Park (Preston Lane, Center Valley) on Thursday, August 18. The clinic will start at 7pm and he’ll spend an hour or so going over the basics of cyclocross including starts, cornering & obstacles. If you don’t have a cross bike, feel free to come out and listen (or bring your mountain bike if you have one). A short course will be set up including two sets of barriers. As of now there is no one else practicing at that time / location, if we get there and find visitors we’ll just move to an open area.
This event is set up under the multisport club that Chris belongs to, Endurance Multisport, for insurance purposes. If you’re interested and not an Endurance Multisport club member you will need to sign a waiver. There is a suggested a minimum $5 donation to the HCM Foundation, but there is no cost for the clinic. Non-Endurance Multisport members must become a one day club member and sign the waiver. The cost for a single day membership is $5.
You can contact Chris at Garges@ptd.net if you have any questions.
Don’t forget to stop by the LVRS Event page for a listing of all the local races with links and descriptions. This weekend there are a couple of 5ks, a 5 mile race, triathlon, trail half marathon, and much more taking place throughout the valley and beyond!
