BABRAI Training (BABRAI = Big A** Bike Ride Across Iowa) - ON HOLD
Our BABRAI training program, to get in top shape for the Big A** Bicycle Ride Across Iowa or any long ride, is currently on hold with registration closed. All national, state, and local officials are recommending no meetings of groups of 10 or more. DMCC believes it is our responsibility to follow these guidelines and do everything we can to keep our members safe and healthy during this time of COVID-19. This is consistent with other cycling organizations which have canceled group events through May.
The DMCC Board of Directors will meet in early May to reassess the situation. Our decision then will be either to resume the program on a certain date, or to cancel for the 2020 season. If the decision is to resume, registration will be re-opened and BABRAI shirts will be ordered. If the decision is to cancel, all current registrants will be notified and rolled into the 2021 season.
The BABRAI program is based on increasing distance week by week to work up to readiness for RAGBRAI, Iowa's Ride, or other long ride. It's definitely more fun to train as a group, but if we can't, each of us can still follow a training schedule individually. Rebecca Bishop and Jason Berggren, BABRAI coordinators, will develop a basic format for individual training and provide it to BABRAI registrants and other club members soon.Join DMCC
NOTE: We are suspending registration for all DMCC programs until further notice due to the COVID-19 situation. We will update as things change.
