Spring Planning

The Ann Arbor Velo Club has a lot planned for this Spring.  Just a few weeks away we'll be hosting the 2012 Skills Clinic, presented by Ann Arbor Velo Club and Two Wheel Tango.  That event is scheduled for Sunday, March 25 and online registration can be found here:  2012 Skills Clinic

Beginning April 1,  and continuing on April 15, 22, and 29th, we will be hosting the 28th annual Spring Training Series.  This early season series is always well attended by some of Southeast Michigan's finest riders and offers a great opportunity to learn from and compete against riders of varying skills and abilities.  A coaching session is offered each week prior to the racing, to help riders familiarize themselves with the feel of riding a criterium course in a pack.

Scheduling and further details can be found at the Ann Arbor Velo Club Spring Training Series site.

The road season begins in earnest on Sunday, May 6 with The Cone-Azalia Classic Road Race.  Known as The Paris-Roubaix of the Midwest, Cone-Azalia features a 10.1 mile loop with 4 miles of gravel/dirt surface per lap.  Cone-Azalia is part of the Michigan Challenge Race Series and offers a great opportunity to rack up some early points.

So, isn't it time you took advantage of this unseasonably nice Michigan weather?  Get out there and ride!
