This recently came to our inbox:

"Bike Central in conjunction with the City of Le Mars, Iowa is hosting a cyclocross training ride Sunday October 23rd at the Le Mars Municipal Park. If not familiar with Le Mars, the Park entrance is on Park Lane, which is a right turn off 4th Ave NE, north of Archie's Waeside Restaurant and the Fairgrounds. Willow Creek Golf Course is also on Park Lane. Signs will be posted at the gate of the park to direct you.

The ride will begin at 2 pm with all participants welcome. Bike Central will invite novice cyclocross riders to go immediately at 2 with experienced riders beginning at 2:30. The route will start near the bathhouse of the old Municipal swimming pool pit.

The course will be approximately 1.25 miles with rolling terrain and short steep inclines. There will be some barriers and some sand to get across.

All are welcome to come ride or watch. Bring the family, friends, noisemakers etc. There is no cost for this event. All participants ride at their own risk."

Bike Central is organizing this because there has been interest expressed in the local community. They are trying this for the first time and would appreciate feedback on the course and suggestions for improvement. They want to put on race in the future and are open to the possibility of mid-week training races. A few of us are going and we encourage others in the tri-states to come out and support it. I suggested that the experienced riders should go around for a period of 40-45 minutes (or for a fixed lap count) to simulate a race and they were agreeable to that.
