Title: Any chance other biking events could be posted here?
Post by: Michael Nevitt on September 01, 2017, 04:00:17 PM
I'm new to riding in Indiana, and just finished the DINO race series (my first races!).  A ton of fun!  I just found out that there are other races and biking activities occasionally around Indy.  For instance, I just found out about the Griffin race and festival this weekend, and I can't go since I didn't find it sooner.  I don't know if there is a better place to find out about bike festivals, races, demo events and the like, but I wish there was a good central place to have things like that posted for all the Indy mtn bike crowd to see.  Is there someplace else I should be looking?  The only other thing I've been told is to watch facebook, which I try to avoid, but even so, how even on facebook would one find them?  Seems like the people putting on these kinds of events would love to have a better place to advertise in a central location.


Anyone have tips to find these types of events?
