Donderdag! 2023-2024 Season Details:

Get ready for another great year packed with CX bike skills clinics and fun!

Season Kickoff Event

Don’t miss our Donderdag Season Kickoff event on Saturday, September 2, 2022 from 9:30am – 11:30am at the Donderdag Cyclocross Course (directions below). Come explore the course and get pre-registered for our Thursday night clinics, so all you have to do is check in via smartphone on Thursday nights. At 10:00am, we’ll make a few announcements about the upcoming season, and answer any questions you have. Bring any bike you have to ride. Adults are always encouraged to join in on their bikes but must sign in to ride and, of course, wear a helmet at all times. Remember, the Donderdag! Clinics are open to riders, FREE of charge, to all ages and experience levels. WE LOVE NEWBIES!
