Last year, we had the idea of doing a cyclocross event at a bowls club. People turned up, rode and had a ball, so we’ve decided to do it all again.
Bowl-O-Cross 2014 will form part of the 2014 Queensland Cyclocross calendar, run in conjunction with the Brisbane South Mountain Bike Club. It will be a day for all riders, from those that have never done cyclocross before through to hardened veterans. Or, if riding around a bowls club on a knobbly-tyred bike sounds like too much work, you can enjoy drinks at bowls club prices and cheer on the riders.
The fun will be happening at Holland Park Bowls Club, Abbotsleigh St, Holland Park, from noon on Sunday 11 May. There will be kids and adults races (in ranging categories of seriousness) as well as relay and novelty races. Costumes in all categories are highly encouraged. A race license will be required for the big race. All other categories will be kept to the minimum participation license.
Just to whet the appetite, here’s some of the action from 2013 (more pics here.)
