Another Race, But Not Mine
Sunday, I got a chance to go out and support the brand new Charlotte Youth Cycling League. It’s a four race kids only series, held at Fisher Farm Park in Davidson, NC. They had races for all ages, especially the youngest ones.
This is a really a great series to have in our area. There were somewhere around 90 kids out there, and they all seemed to be having a blast. Two of our local shops, Queen City Bicycles and The Cycle Path, supported the events with food and mechanical services. They support a ton of events here in our area, so make sure that if you are local you support them too.
I didn’t take a many photos because I was busy helping with the races, but you can see more here:

There are three races left in the series, so if you want to help out (or even better bring your kids out to race), then check out the Charlotte Youth Cycling League web page.
They also have a Facebook page that you can "like."
Check them out and see what you can do to get involved. Come on out to help, bring a kid to race, or even bring a neighbor's kid out to race. It's really a lot of fun. The next race is April 1st, by the way.
After we helped tear down everything form the event, the little lady and I took a ride on the trail with our single speeds. It was Little Miss Sunshine’s first time there on her new Misfit, and she did a great job out there. Once again though, I brought the camera along and didn’t take any photos.
I did get a photo from our post ride recovery meal:
Yeah, I drink a lot of beer. So what, I’m old enough.
