Kent ISD event canceled - Some notes about that.

Per the event's website: Due to lack of registrations this event has been cancelled.  Any one who registered will be offered a full refund including processing fees or a free entry to both the Zeeland Criterium and the MSG Time Trial.

One thing to note about online registration: it's easy to wait until the last minute to register for an event. Unforntunately, this puts a lot of stress on already-stressed-out promoters of races who need to know that they're going to have competitors show up for their race.
If you know you're going to race an event, please don't wait to register. 
We know that a lot of non-cycling things influence your decision to race a given event (work, family, health, TV schedule). We just ask that you consider committing further in advance. 

Clinics and Training Series

It's great to finally be getting some race miles in! 
Just want to encourage you all - old and new riders alike - to take advantage of the various clinics and training series that are happening on both sides of the state. 
There's lots being done to improve the racing experience and safety for all categories. Please tune into the MBRA Facebook page for information on upcoming training opportunities. 

Memorial for Jeff Surnow

Hello Michigan Bicycle Racing Community,

It was with deep sadness that we learned last week that Jeff Surnow was killed while cycling in Hawaii. Jeff was the driving force behind the Birmingham Bike Festival and a member of the Wolverine Sports Club. I had the pleasure of working with Jeff for the past 3 summers at his event; he was an amazing race director who always had a huge smile on his face.

The MBRA, Wolverine Sports Club and USA Cycling would like to have a tree($1,500), bench with plaque($1,500) and drinking fountain($6,000) installed in Barnum park in Birmingham which is near where Jeff used to ride. We are hoping that the cycling community will come together and support this project. Any additional funds generated will be donated to Wish-A-Mile a charity that Jeff was passionate about.
Please take a moment and consider donating.
Funds can be sent through PayPal,  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or by mailing a check to the MBRA Memorial Fund, 395 Whitewater, Milford, MI 48381
