Popular Pumpkin Cross coming

The biggest cyclo-cross event in Maple Ridge, and one of the best attended in the province, is the seventh annual Pumpkin Cross.

The date for Maple Ridge’s Halloween bike race is creeping up.

The biggest cyclo-cross event in Maple Ridge, and one of the best attended in the province, is the seventh annual Pumpkin Cross.

It will be held on Oct. 27 at North Alouette River Greenway Park, located behind the Maple Ridge Equi-Sport Centre. Barry Lyster of Local Ride racing  is also the event organizer for Pumpkin Cross.

“Pumpkin Cross is one of the most-loved cyclo-cross races in B.C., largely because of its festival atmosphere,” he said. “We make it really fun with a Halloween theme, prizes for costumes, music, and emcee, and a great course.

“It’s an event the whole family can enjoy.”

Riders can pre-register at Local Ride Bike Shop in person or by phone by 5 p.m. on the Monday before each race and are encouraged to do so to simplify race night logistics.

On-site registration will also be available. More info here: http://www.localride.ca/wp/2013/09/18/monday-cyclo-cross-clinics-races-oct-7-14-21/
