BFSC Ride Schedule January 21 & 22 - Sunday Road Ride Start Time Change to 9:00 AM

BFSC Sunday's Road Ride Start Time changes to 9:00 AM.
With the winter cooler weather it has been suggested to change the Sunday road ride start time to 9:00 AM and match the mountain bike start time. This will allow the day to warm up a little more and maybe more road bike riders will join the Sunday ride.

Pro Bike Racing season has started on TV. The Tour Down Under has been on NBCSports TV (Comcast Channel 448) all week at 5:30 PM & 12:30 AM. The TDU will be on Friday, Saturday and the finish on Sunday.

If you are interested in checking out a new mountain bike or would like to try mountain biking at Hanna, Bicycle Etc. is sponsoring a TREK demo day this Sunday, January 22 at Hanna Park from 10:00 to 3:00.
