The Mid-Atlantic Cyclo-cross series Wissahickon race on October 19 has added a unique attraction to the well-regarded UCI C2 event. Taking advantage of the space afforded at the Ludwig's Corner Horse Show and Country Fairgrounds, the race will also feature a hand-made bicycle show featuring some of the greatest craftsmen in the industry.
"The mini handmade show will be showcasing builders that have had a presence in the cyclo-cross scene over the years of it becoming popular within the US and East Coast," said Drew Guldalian, owner of race sponsor Wissahickon Cyclery in Philadelphia. "Currently, we have Engin Cycles, Richard Sachs, Bilenky Cycle Works, Ingleheart Custom Frames, Circle A Cycles, Independent Fabrication and Vicious Cycles already committed. And we’re working on some other big names as well."
Another of Guldalian’s passions is music, and he’s once again bringing live music to the race in the form of the hard-rockin’ jam band "Murder House". Also returning is the popular Victory Brewing Beer tent. According to race promoter Kelly Cline, "This year's beer tent is larger than ever before. And Victory Brewing is setting us up with primes and prizes for various classes, as well as free samples in the tent."
