Winter Short Track Series Race #2 @ Renaissance Park
Jan 28 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Back in action, Charlotte’s longstanding local Winter Short Track Series. So proud of our own crew, first year team ranked 7th out of 60 teams & just last year we placed 4th in the points chase out of 65 teams. Come for fun, a bit of racing & stay for the hot soups & brownies! Interested in racing with our crew, as our crew, regardless of a Dad or not, well we welcome all & you def don’t have to be a spandex clad pro-type, cause we’re not! Racing for our crew comes with perks, just sayin’, as we’re sponsored by Maxxis Tires, Magura USA, ODI Grips, Honey Stinger, Cane Creek Cycling Components & Ride 100%….so, wanna rock, contact us direct, we’d be glad to have ya & upon registration, be sure to input “Bikin’ Dads Adventures” under the team name.

The short course brings a unique and fun style of racing to the Charlotte area – short-track mountain bike racing on a 3/4 mile trail with banked turns. It’s a cross between a criterium, BMX, cyclo-cross and single-track, super fast and spectator-friendly. Charlotte Sports Cycling and the Tarheel Trailblazers have worked hard to create a trail that’s exciting for the race participants and spectators. Participants, based on category, will race 15 to 25 laps on the fast course. All of the events will be held at Renaissance Park. We plan to have food, an event photographer, and music at all of the events.

Pages, Pedals & a Pint Tour @ Cabarrus Brewing Co.
Feb 25 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

 

Join us and our pals at Cabarrus Brewing Company on Feb. 25th as we kick off our Pages, Pedals & a Pint Tour! From now through the end of the school year, Bikin’ Dads Adventures will be co-hosting this tour across several areas with our efforts aimed at collecting new or gently used Kids Bikes & Books. Monetary donations will also be accepted, plus our pals will be donating a $1 of every pint sold during the event to dedicate to this effort. 

This is part of a new segment by the crew, titled, “Tools for Adventure”, in which we firmly believe that both Bikes & Books can be used to take us and area youth on the most epic journeys, be it physically or imaginatively. 

There will be food trucks, cornhole, larger than life jenga & even an INDOOR mini-bike course to test out your awesomeness! So bring your family & friends, grab a pint or two, play some games and be rad, with the Bikin’ Dads crew. 

A What & a Why answered…
This is new collaborative effort to provide both books and bikes to area youth in Cabarrus, Mecklenburg & Gaston Counties. By teaming up with local gov’t entities and more, our aim is to collect bikes, books & hopefully helmets to provide to area youth.

Why, you ask, as the school year ends, youth sometimes become less active mentally and physically and our aim is to keep them going by providing these “Tools for Adventure”!

BD Adventures legally named, but you all know us as, Bikin’ Dads Adventures in which we are a 501(c)3 program, aimed at working with area fathers and youth, in “building stronger relationships one adventure at a time”. Curious as to more, be sure to check us out at www.BikinDads.com & we hope to see you sooner than later!
