BEFORE READING: if you are on the CrossFondo mailing list (join via website www.tripleshotcrossfondo.ca) you have already rec'd the following info in your inbox.

ONE  MONTH AND COUNTING! Registration is now open for the inaugural Tripleshot Cross Fondo …and we have some info to share too.

2.     By registering to ride either the 20km or 40km route, you are supporting the Tripleshot Cycling Club’s Youth Team!

They are talented! They are keen! They are the future of cycling in Canada! And on Oct. 16  they will make sure your Tripleshot CrossFondo experience is a memorable one! From trail clearing, to set up, keeping you motivated on the trails, and washing your bike at the end, they will be there for you! We will also be donating part of the proceeds to the South Island Nature Trails Society that is working to connect communities by creating a world class outdoor recreation network of shared use trails for all ages, abilities, and experiences (http://naturetrailssociety.com/ <http://naturetrailssociety.com/> )
