Coming up Wednesday, April 20, our second Zer-O event of the season will take place at Mt Tabor. This training event is technically created as a "Bike-O," but you are welcome to show up just for some evening exercise on foot. Weather looks to be in the low 70's and sunny, making for a perfect evening to catch some views of the city. Note that this events is on a Wednesday, when the park is closed to cars.
There will be one 2.6 km course and a shorter 1.8 km course available for those interested in one or both. All controls will be located on or directly next to a trail, so please no off-trail riding at this event. Also note that even though there won't be any cars on the roads at the park, there will be many skateboarders, hikers, walkers, bikers, and dogs out and about enjoying the evening. Please travel with care and yield to slower traffic on trails and paths.
Starts will be open from 5:30 to 6:30. Late comers are welcome but control pick up will begin about 20 to 30 minutes after the last start or 7:30, whichever comes first.
