SNOWMASS VILLAGE ” The local bike racing season isn’t over yet.

Rain washed out the Aspen Cycling Club’s June 6 road circuit event in Snowmass Vil­lage, so the club is making up the race at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

The race starts across from the Two Creeks parking lot and takes rid­ers up Owl Creek Road toward Snow­mass Village. Riders will veer right on Brush Creek Road, then right again on Highline Road for a climb back to Owl Creek Road before a final push back to the start/finish area.

A fun, fast course with minimal climbing, it’s ideal for recreational riders considering their first race.

Registration will take place in the Two Creeks main parking lot between 5 and 5:45 p.m. Fees are $5 for ACC members and $10 for nonmembers. Ample parking is available at the Two Creeks lot.

The citizens, masters, juniors and vet women’s fields will begin with a mass start at 6 p.m. and race three laps. Senior men’s A, veteran men’s A and senior women’s A will start at 6:20 p.m. and race for four or five laps (day­light permitting).

Race changes and/or cancellation for weather will be announced at the start.

Marshals are needed; to volunteer, call Susan (Mouse) Carollo at 618-4626 or 922-0065.
