- Monday August 1st at Monday Night Bike Race Series at PIR

Introduction to Racing Clinics:
Never tried bicycle racing and always wanted to see what it was all about?
Want to learn about the basics and more? Come join us for a FREE quick and
concise clinic at 5:30 p.m. before the start of the novice race on the
first racing Monday of each month, May through August (May 2, June 6, July
11, and August 1).

Clinics are organized using expert coaches and instructors from Wenzel
Coaching. We will cover group riding basics, assist with number pinning,
and walk you through a typical race at PIR. If time permits, we will teach
tricks for saving energy, riding predictably and smoothly, and safely
maneuvering in the pack. Coaches will be available after the novice race to
answer questions.

Try Bike Racing Nights:
This season, in partnership with OBRA, Monday Night Race Series is offering
a deal for new racers rolling up to the start for the first time. On May 2,
June 6, July 11, and August 1, we will waive the one-day OBRA membership
fee of $5. (Standard entry fee of $15 still applies.)
