Heritage Cyclocross Seies Update
Wednesday, October 15, 2003

With less than two weeks to go before the series kicks off in Canton, People
Cycle released its event schedule and details on the four event series .

Canton MHS Cyclo-Cross Race – Oct. 25

Returning for 2003, the Canton race carries with it high marks and should
prove to be an exciting start to series. The course, held at the
Massachusetts Hospital School, is a fast, mostly flat 1.5 km loop featuring
a short paved climb, plenty of grass, some fast dirt double and single
track, a few sharp turns, and three sets of barriers. Riders and spectators
will be treated to hot food and drink, provided by the MHS Students and
Staff, and People Cycle, Inc, as well as a raffle for some top of the line
Atomic Skate Ski’s. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the MHS
wheelchair athletics program. For information go to:

Coonamessett Eco ‘Cross – Nov. 9

In cooperation with Coonamessett Farm and the Alchemy Farm Ecological
Community, the first Cape Cod event takes place near the Coonamessett
Conservation area. Riders will face a technical course that winds across
the Coonamessett Farm area, traversing a difficult climb and several barrier
sections. The course should prove ideal for spectators, with the nearby
Cafe overlooking much of the course. In addition to the race action, riders
and the public are welcome to walk the farm, check out the animals, canoe,
buy fresh organic produce, or enjoy any number of vegetarian meals served at
the Cafe. Proceeds from the race will benefit the People Cycle Junior
Development Foundation. For information go to:

Plymouth Cyclocross – Nov. 15

It is only fitting that Bill Sykes and Plymouth, home of one of the longest
running cross events, play host to a Heritage Series race. Site of two
National Championships, Plymouth Cyclocross offers one of the most
challenging courses in New England; ample wide grass sections, a challenging
technical descent and two stiff run-ups help keep the heart rate at this
race. Once again, People Cycle will provide hot beverages and food in the
warmth of the school. For information go to:

Mike Wiley Memorial ‘Cross Race- Dec. 14

Back from 2002, Falmouth High School will host the final event in the
Heritage Cross series. Despite small changes have been made, much of the
"fun" course sections remain to offer riders a sufficient challenge. Named
in honor of Nantucketer Mike Wiley, Corner Cycle Patron and all around nice
guy, the course remains largely unchanged with many fast, grassy sections,
wooded trails, at least one run-up, a tricky loose chip descent and climb
and many barriers. Both riders and spectators will be treated to great food
and drink and plenty of exciting racing. As the series finale, double
series points will be up for grabs! Proceeds from the race will benefit the
People Cycle Junior Development Foundation. For information go to:
