Even if you couldn’t get in before registration filled up for the challenge that is the Hell of Hunterdon Spring Classic, on Sunday, March 18, you’re invited to come to the Elks Lodge in beautiful Blawenburg, NJ, on Saturday, March 17th, for a Q&A session with former professional cyclist and PA-native Floyd Landis. Floyd will talk about his cycling career, his life after professional cycling, and his “Floyd’s of Leadville” business, among other subjects.
The event is free of charge, but donations to the Elks Lodge Charity Fund are suggested. It is also open to the public; you do NOT need to be registered for the ride in order to attend. Along with the Q&A is Hell of Hunterdon Early Package Pick-up as well as an optional dinner at the Elks Lodge. You can find details on BikeReg (https://www.bikereg.com/a-qa-with-floyd-landis) for the talk. Registration has closed for the dinner, but there still may be food available to purchase.
It is St. Patrick’s Day; there will be traditional Irish fare, along with a Cycling Friendly menu. All proceeds from the dinner also benefit the Elk’s Charity Fund.
And while you may have missed out on the 10th edition of The Hell of Hunterdon, the Fool’s Classic on April 7th is a similar mixed surface ride that still has slots open, as does the Fleche Buffoon ride on April 28th.
