April 11/11 9:23 am - MIVA CyclingHosts Final Spring Crit April 17th
Posted by Editoress on 04/11/11
The Mid-Island Velo Association would like to extend a special invitation to all Nanaimo cyclists to come out and participate in their events. We have been hosting early season criteriums on Sundays, the last one coming up on Sunday April 17th. Then there will be Tuesday weekly criteriums along with our Thursday Time Trials on the Nanaimo Lakes Road starting on April 14th.
I have been a cyclist in the mid island region on and off for the better part of 20 years, there has always been a gap in local events for racing cyclists. In my years I have seen many events disappear from lack of participation or from organizer burnout! We have a solid committee, prepared to continue putting on great events, but that can only happen if we have competitors. Our last two events were participated in primarily from out of town riders. Come on Nanaimo riders, show your support for a great event and contribute to the building of a great mid island racing community.
