Saturday’s Halloween Cyclocross Classic in Milwaukee has been canceled. Milwaukee County Parks made the call this morning, saying that the grounds at Washington Park would be off-limits due to all the recent rain. No doubt, last year’s damaging mudfest was still fresh in the minds of the decision makers.
A little closer to home, there will be a nighttime ride on the Eisenbahn State Trail tomorrow at 6:30 p.m., hosted by the always frightening Jimmy Scharrer. The 16-mile out-and-back ride will start and finish at the Museum of Wisconsin Art, with a mid-ride rest stop at the Speakeasy tavern in Kewaskum and post-ride drinks at Riverside Brewery & Restaurant in West Bend. I have to work, so no fun for me. If you’re free, then use the Facebook event page to let Jimmy know that you’ll be there!
An open Saturday probably means a long road ride for me and more energy for Sunday’s cyclocross race in Oshkosh. And hopefully we will have a long stretch of dry weather between now and next Saturday: Estabrook Park is another Milwaukee County property.
