Ridgeland Fat-Tire Weekend

I'd like to encourage all TCMBA members and area cyclists to join us for the Ridgeland Fat-Tire Weekend. If you've never entered a race before, now is a great time to try it out. The beginner class has shrunk this year because a majority of last year's beginners have moved up to sport class. This is a great opportunity to give racing a try in a truly beginner friendly setting. If you're capable a riding 10 miles of easy to moderate trails, then this race should be lots of fun.

Saturday 10/18

Things will start at 3:00pm with a 3.5 mile time trial. This will be very informal. Individual riders will start in 1 minute intervals. The idea is to just see how fast you can cover one lap of the 3.5 mile course.

The band will start at 4:00pm, and play until 7:00pm. During this time we invite everyone to spread out a blanket, bring a grill or some pizza, and just enjoy the afternoon. Packet pickup and registration for the Sunday race will be available during Saturday's activities.

Sunday 10/19

Sunday will be the McGee Lungbuster XC Race. The kids race will begin at 8:00am, with the juniors and beginners starting shortly afterwards. Sport and Expert racers start at 10:00am, with an awards ceremony to follow. Pick up some raffle tickets during the weekend for the CPS Pools and Spas hot tub give-a-way. The drawing will be held during the awards ceremony.
