Little Laramie Shredders

Join Melissa Ross (Link Cycling) and Jenn Hess (Rowdy Gowdy Women’s Camp) at Washington Park in July for a FREE weekly Little Laramie Shredders clinic!

Dates (Wednesdays at 5:30pm-6:30pm): July 5, July 12, July 19, July 26 

The weekly clinic is for toddlers-6 year olds who want to learn how to ride their bike with other kiddos their age!

Each week we will focus on skills, games, have snacks, and create a fun environment for kiddos who are learning to ride a bike.

  • If your child is learning how to ride without training wheels, we will work on helping them gain confidence and balance. 
  • If your kid is learning how to ride a pedal bike for the first time, we will work on this!
  • If your kid is already riding strong - we’ll work on increasing their skill level and make sure they know bike safety.
  • If your kiddo doesn’t want to ride that day, don’t sweat it! We will be at the park so they can go play and still have a great time. There’s no pressure. Each kid will be on their own timeframe for learning and growing.

Parents have the option of staying and participating with their kid or dropping them off. Some kids do better when the parent isn’t around. Please RSVP ahead of time so we have a head count. If you are interested in being a parent volunteer, let us know!

Since this is a weekly clinic, you can attend as many as you like! 

This clinic is FREE - thanks to the sponsorship of Link Cycling and Rowdy Gowdy Women’s Camp!

Things to bring:

  • Water
  • Snacks (if your kid has a preference - we will have more snacks too)
  • Sunscreen
  • Helmet
  • Bike! (If you don’t have a bike yet, let us know - we might have a few extra loaner bikes for the clinic.)

MOUNTAIN BIKE RACE IN LARAMIE

Laramie Range Epic - JULY 29TH, 2023

The Laramie Range Epic (formally called the Laramie Enduro) has been around since 1998!

This year's event offers two racing options:

One and Done - A one lap, 32 mile loop (3190 ft of climbing/descending per lap, all over 7500 ft in elevation) winding through the Pole Mountain trail system. Racers will be supported by the famous Laramie Range Epic Volunteers and sponsors who have made this race as fun and approachable as it is challenging and competitive.

The Laramie Range Epic - The same course with a second lap. This is type two fun. It is going to hurt, but in a really good way. Same great support on both laps, and the beer at the end of the race has been on ice longer.

Free - Laramie Range Epic Training Plan

If you are planning on registering for the Laramie Range Epic - get an 8-week training plan designed by Coach Melissa Ross (Link Cycling) for FREE (a $75 value)!!

There is a plan for both the One and Done and the 62 mile race.

 

The 8-week training plan will prepare you for the challenging terrain and starts out with a field test so you can determine your heart rate or power training zones. 

If you have a busy work schedule, the intervals can be done on your road or mountain bike. On the weekends, hit the trails for a gradual build each weekend.

Included in the training calendar is a list of local events you should also sign up for as part of your LRE training.
