Thanks Given'er @ BBMX

A late season retreat back to our home course to take full advantage of this awesome build project. Let's give Thanks for what we already have, and start Given'er in the other direction! The track is holding up much better in the November rainy season than it did in September, especially after 250 people rode over it a few times and packed it in! We'll be patching up & improving some especially muddy sections during a work party on Saturday, Nov. 9th from 10am to 4pm. Join us!

We are fundraising for two causes again this weekend - WWU Cycling (the sponsoring team) and Tim Ross who fractured a vertebrae in his neck at Day 1 of the Cross Border Clash this year. Let's help him with a bit of his medical expenses and get him back on the bike ASAP! He's even coming to cheer us on. Let's give Thanks that he's well enough to return to bike racing for 2014, and start Given'er for Tim!

If you're not familiar with this venue yet, see all the backstory on our Season Opener. See also the 3 minute film we made for Shoot the Trails.

Bellingham BMX :: Bellingham, WA

Brought to you by WWU Cycling on Nov 16th, 2013

Pre-registration:
Is available on BikeReg.com

Directions:
Bellingham BMX is at 5022 Guide Meridian (map) just north of Kelly Road and south of Smith Road. Look for a long chain link fence and white buildings painted with orange trim. It is across the road from a "Gifts & Things" store with flags & banners out front.

Parking:
There is some parking within the venue we will also require overflow. Look for parking signs near the intersection of Kelly Rd. at 4909 Guide Meridian, 1/4 mile south along the highway. We have the BACK lot at the red Estate Sales building on the corner of Kelly Rd on the east side (do not park in their front lot, please). It is walkable or rideable on the wide shoulder! Look at the Google Map for car icons.

Host Hotel:
The newly opened SpringHill Suites offers our Series participants a discount rates and is only 3.5 miles from the BMX track. You just need to call 800-853-5788 by Wednesday at midnight and ask for our group rate.

Riding Options:
The Guide Meridian is a highway, but the shoulder near the venue is wide & safe. NOT SO in the zone from I-5 and the Bellis Fair Mall up to Walmart, so here are some alternate bike commute routes to the track via backroads & trails. These are relatively quiet & safe routes, one on roads with good bike lanes and/or light traffic, and one on a mix of urban trails & dirt roads on a pretty mountain (a.k.a. a cyclocross warmup)!
