Please review the following dates for upcoming PORC events through April. We wanted to post this so you would have an idea of what we have going on. If you have some other ideas/ suggestions to put on the schedule or if we are missing something big please let us know. We will post more about each of the specific dates as we get closer to them.


March 2nd:
Sunday "wife ride" - Leisurely ride with the wife/ girlfriend and/ or kids. Get the ladies to enjoy the trails and get to know each other. Time to be determined. Will post when we get closer to the date.


March 8th and 9th:
"Back to the Bouge" race - The race will be held at the Chickasabouge Trails in Mobile, Al. There will be a short track race on Saturday and then the kick off of the SCRCS points race season on Sunday 9th. A flyer with all the details is available at www.mobilevelo.org.


March 16th:

April 12th:
Time Trials- Time trials for everyone on the main loop. Get the fastest guys to start so they don't run in to the slow guys and run each rider 2 or 3 minutes apart with one person timing each of the riders and two spotters on the trails to make sure everyone is doing the full loop. Have a Pro class (under fifty minutes), a Sport class (between fifty and an hour), and Beginner class (over an hour) and then beer/ get together afterwards. Winners will get swag and/ or bragging rights. Will post more info at a later date.


April 20:
"Attack on Swayback" race- In Wetumpka, Alabama. The challenging 12 + miles of trail winds its way through dense forest and along the steep banks of Lake Jordan. See the South Central Regional Championship Series website (www.scrcs.com) for more details.


April 26:
Skills clinic- For members and/ or the general public attend. Experienced members teaching others how to “bunny hop”, ride over obstacles, turn, distribute your weight properly, etc… Will post more info at a later date.


*Group ride: Every Saturday unless bad weather or another event is scheduled for the day. Will post times each week but tentatively shoot for 10:00 am.
