City Rides starting up

Monthly meetingFirst City Ride of the year will be this Thursday night, April 30.

We will meet at the parking lot of Windland Park around 5:45 pm. We will ride off promptly at 6:00 pm. The park is located off of Wadley and “A” street behind the COM pool. This ride is designed to have a nice leisurely ride through Midland and stop have dinner and conversation then ride back. We usually get back to the park about 8:30-ish. We have had a good time in the past. This is also a two week trial, this Thursday and next Thursday to see if there is still an interest in the ride or not. This will be determined by the riders that show up or the lack thereof.

So please “Come Ride With Us”.

PBBA Meeting 4/28

Dear PBBA members,

We have scheduled a PBBA meeting for Tuesday night April 28th at 7:00 PM to be held at the Odessa Mountain Bike Park at the Pavilion.  We apologize for the short notice.   We encourage all members of the club to attend. Many of us will probably ride prior to the meeting and possibly after the meeting.  The agenda will be mountain bike specific and will address the following:

1. Mountain Bike Racing – We plan to form a race committee and make races at the park a quarterly event. Race format, organization and content will be discussed.

2. Planned work days at the Park – we will discuss when to have the next organized work day and the improvement goals for the park.

3. Skills and basic maintenance Clinic – We will schedule a weekend morning and select volunteers.

4. Discussion and scheduling of a PBBA Club mountain bike trip to Northern New Mexico to ride Angel Fire Mountain Bike Park and the epic “South Boundary Trail”.

I hope to see you Tuesday evening.

Best regards,

Steve Mitchell
Mountain Bike Director – PBBA

Time Trial MTB Race 4/11

The PBBA has scheduled a time trial mountain bike race at the Odessa Mountain Bike Park on April 11, 2015. pdf-icon

The race will start at 10 AM and registration will begin at 9 AM.  We will have a beginner course (approximately 3.5 miles) an intermediate course (approximately 6 miles) and an advanced course ( approximately 10 miles).

The race will be further subdivided into age groups depending on the number of participants.  We plan to provide prizes for the winners and lunch for everyone who races or provides support.  The fee to race is only 5 dollars per entry and you don’t have to be a PBBA member to race (but you will need to sign a waiver).

Odessa Mountain Bike ParkAny additional donations to the club/park is greatly appreciated.

We have made a lot of improvements to the trail system.  The trails are in great shape due to the moisture and the effort of club members to clean the trails of vegetation and rock debris.

We hope to get a big turn out so please try to make this event and tell all your friends.  I know some folks don’t like to race but it can be just a fun ride for those that don’t want to compete.  If you want to race in the open class and be at the front of the pack, please show up by 9:30 AM so we can get you properly placed.

I look forward to seeing you all next month.

Regards,
Steve Mitchell
PBBA Mountain Bike Director
