MTB Race at Berlin High School Wednesday April 6

After our successful first ever mountain bike race last month, many of our riders are in top positions for the CCAP 3-Race MTB Series this spring http://www.ctcyclingadvancement.org/events-series/ccap-spring-mtb-series/ 

I know a few of you have moved on to spring sports and a few of you didn’t make the last race. I want to encourage everyone that can to come out to the second race, which is this Wednesday, April 6 at Berlin High School https://www.bikereg.com/ccap-school-short-track-series-2 

We now have 7 club mountain bikes and I just had all 7 tuned up. So, I have a mountain bike for anyone and everyone.

Wednesday’s race starts at 4:15 and Berlin is an hour away, so we need to leave right after school, so as to have time to scout the course, warm up, etc.

Again, this is meant to be a fun series. While technically it is a “race” the overall goal is to have fun and support each other.

Please confirm with Mr. Jannke that you wish to attend (bring a friend to try it out, too).

The CCAP MB Series Comes to Ledyard

We have some exciting and fun news. First, we started a middle school cycling club, which is focusing on mountain biking. Next we are hosting the first of a 3-race mountain bike series by the CCAP on March 9! Some of our middle school riders will be “racing.” I say “racing” because this really isn’t a serious race. It’s more for fun. There will be 3 classes: middle school, JV and varsity. Kids will be coming from all over Connecticut! More exciting news is that the CCAP has given us 4 mountain bikes! LHS is putting together a team of high schoolers who will ride. The “race” is free. Don’t bother registering. I will register you. I just need names of those who will ride. Also, I need to know if you want a loner mountain bike. Please respond to me ASAP. Thanks! -Mr. Jannke

Below is the event flyer and map, but again, don't register online, just email or see Mr. Jannke. Click on the images for a larger view.
