Upcoming Events Y'all

There are a couple of exceptional cycling events happening next week.

Bruce Penner reports...

Hello, everyone!  The Penners want to host you again for a Bike Race/Fundraiser Supper for MS.

Thursday, August 11, The Penner's Yard (4 miles south of Altona on hwy 30, 1 mile west).

We'll eat from 5:30-6:30.  Racing will be starting at 7:00.

The race course is yet to be determined.  All kinds of classes for different levels of riders....and prizes!!  And little kids, bring your Runner Bikes, there's a course for you too!

MS Society fund-raising is part of the focus.  Please come for the meal if you don't ride.

RSVP Bruce and Elexis at 327-5457

This event is pretty much perfect.  Especially if you like good timey events.

And speaking of good times...

The Back 40 Mtb Race takes place next week Sunday.  This race is open to everybody and is almost as fun as Southern Cross - so you know it's good.

We may be able to pre-ride the course on Tuesday, but given the recent rain we'll check in with TCC to see if the trails need to be saved for the race or if we can take an early sniff at the course.

I had a sweet holiday with a lot of camping, swimming, driving and hanging out with family and friends.  I was also able to get in some good cycling including a 24 hour race, a wine tasting bike tour, and a handful of mtb rides on beautiful trails - all with my good buddy Jonny G.  Basically it sucked.  I did returned in time to watch the Bombers kick some Eskimo ass.  Oh happy day!
Did anybody take any pics at the last allecat?
Did I miss Lorne?!



  1. how about a weekend wedding alleycat?
    I heard ABES didn't receive their official invite.
    Come one, come all, and did I hear something about rink dogs and chips?

    Maybe help out with parking those who don't bike???

    7PM @ the Krahn barn.
    Good times to be had.

  2. The pre-ride is on tonight. Meet at 6:45 at the Tinker Creek Cycle (James place.)
