Do Not Miss These Programs!

BikesBikesBikes_BuildaBikeIowa City is going to be hosting an international event on September 24 in a sport few Americans know much about — Cyclo-cross.  In preparation the Library has planned three programs so people can educate themselves about the sport.  Last week you missed a great documentary, For the Love of Mud.  I learned a lot and gained a real appreciation of the sport.  Luckily, it is now in our collection so you can watch it at your leisure — perhaps this winter when the snow is falling and you want to see people covered in mud carrying bicycles up hills and throw them over creeks (this is fun!?).BikesBikesBikes_JingleCross

This week we are featuring University of Iowa professor, Dr. Steve McGuire who will be talking about the fabrication and design of bikes — Wednesday, September 14, 7:00, Meeting Room A.  Next week we have the founder of our Jingle Cross event and key figure in bringing the World Cup Cyclo-cross event to Iowa City, Dr. John Meehan — Tuesday, September 20, 7:00, Meeting Room A.

Let’s show our international visitors that we appreciate this exciting, family oriented sport.  For more information see the website.
