56TH CHEVRON GRAND PRIX
The 56th Annual Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix returns this year on July 30! One of the country's longest continuous running cycling events, sponsored by local club South Bay Wheelmen!
Come out to the course by Live Oak Park in Manhattan Beach to watch bicycle racing at its best. This Beach Cities tradition this year will have an added element of excitement as the course will be raced counter-clockwise instead of the usual clockwise direction. There's fun for the whole family as the Chevron Kid's Zone will be expanded this year. And of course we will have the kids' races, a crowd favorite.
Details here: www.mbgp.com
The Club will have a booth at the Grand Prix event. We need a few volunteers to represent the Club and recruit for the Best Buddies Challenge Ride on Sept 9th. Contact Jim, @ firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping.
