Summer 2012 events

It's time for some fun....come join if you can at the following MTB-KC events this summer:

June 23 - Jackson County Journey : MTB Century

Not for the weak at heart or legs.  This is a strict no PAB ride...


Who: Anyone
What: 100+ miles of a pure Jackson County Journey
When: June 23. Start at 8:00 am
Where: Begins at the Trolly Track Trail trailhead, Volker and Brookside (near UMKC, Russell Stover, Plaza Library)
Why: It is time.
How: Trolly Trail-->BuRP (River, BoHaCa, Ox Bow, Wagon, Serengeti, Ox Bow, Basement, River)-->Blue River Road-->Swope (Wudchuck P1/2, Rancho P4, Wudchuck P3, Wudchuck Offshoot, Rancho P3/1)-->Blue Springs Lake (Lake Vista, North Shore)--Adams Dairy Parkway Trail-->Landahl (Tasty, Lollipop, Rim Job, Family+Offshoots, Scott's New Loop, Family/Dave's Maze, Will's)-->Little Blue Trace-->Stadiums-->Brush Creek Trail


We'll stop somewhere in Blue Springs together after the lake trails to regroup and get a real meal (where exactly TBD). Other than that, food, water, and other support is on your own. Won't try to drop anyone, but won't sit around all day waiting on you either. Got 100+ miles to finish, hopefully before dark. All the trail systems have water available at them.

Probably try to keep around a ~15 MPH average on the road sections to get us between the gnar. Hopefully a bigger group will provide opportunity for rest (drafting).

Come on out and join the fun. If you've never done a century with dirt included, come gitchyasum. I personally promise you will make it back home (unless you don't...)

Should end up being right at 110 miles or so...about 40% dirt, 60% gravel and pavement.

July 21 - Colavita Cross Country Challenge @ WYCO Lake Trails

Part of the UFD West Series.  Traditional MTB-XC Races for all ages and abilities.  At Wyandotte 
County Lake Trails.  Should be a nice little loop :D  More info soon...

August 11 - Dusk Dash @ Swope Park (Evening MTB Race)

Title pretty much says it all :)  More info soon...

see you around!
