Intro Cyclocross Beginner Series

cyclocross beginner clinics

If you've been considering getting into the world of Cyclocross, BSSCX is hosting a 4-part Introduction to Cyclocross on Tuesdays to introduce the skills of mounts, dismounts, cornering, sand, etc, and get you CX ready. Our club captains and members with all their CX knowledge and skills will be there to teach, encourage, build, and provide you with a nice base to get started with cyclocross.

You can drop in at any time but will get more out of the series if you can make it to each one. We hope to see you out there! Introduction to Cyclocross is open to all beginners and near beginners! Tell your friends!
