SPRINGFIELD PARK DISTRICT ANNOUNCES CYCLOCROSS PARCX 2022
5529 Bunker Hill
[Springfield, IL] – The Springfield Park District is pleased to present our newest event, Cyclocross.
CYCLOCROSS PARCX 2022
What is cyclocross?
“Cyclo-” implies this is an activity that involves a bike. “-Cross” suggests that you are going to go
a-cross terrain and obstacles. So, how is this different from commuting? Rather than going from
point A to point B, you, the Cat 4/5 beginner, are going to race around a 1.5 -2 mile plastic tapedefined loop for about 30 minutes. Grass, dirt, a little pavement, sand, and mud are standard
terrain. Those in more advanced categories (Cat 1-3) race for 45 or 60 minutes.
For more information contact Marty at 217-753-2800 ext. #2003 or register online at
bit.ly/Cyclocross_SPD and look for Cyclocross (Activity #361204). Pre-registration is
recommended, and participants must bring their own bike and helmet. A specialized Cyclocross
bike is not needed.
REGISTER TODAY…. WHETHER YOU’RE A SEASONED RIDER OR A 1ST TIMER! EVERYONE IS
INVITED TO PARTICIPATE.
