As school starts in August, so does preparation for the SCC’s fall Mountain Bike and Cyclocross seasons in the MidWest Collegiate Cycling Conference and the events it will host to promote safe cycling on campus.
The first team meeting on Sept. 2nd was full of new faces. Topics of discussion included the race schedules and the events that would take place this fall.
A new ride schedule was set that includes many rides throughout the week for both beginners and training cyclists. All rides begin on campus and will depart from the traffic island in front of the Ville Grill. The schedule will be posted shortly.
The MTB season will feature trips to Wisconsin and the Upper Penninsula of Michigan for the Ripon and Michigan Tech events respectively. It will also head to Indianapolis for the Marian race weekend and will conclude close to home in Columbia, Ky with Lindsey Wilson’s conference championships.
On Aug. 22nd, the SCC will partner with the Engage-Lead-Serve Board (ELSB) and Sustain Louisville to encourage bicycle registration in a new, annual Bicycle Registration event.
The SCC is also proud to announce Sommerville Sports as the official clothing sponsor. Uniforms will be unveiled before the 2014 Cyclocross season.
