Beer Garden Classic Saturday, November 5
What do you get when you cross road racing with mountain biking? Cyclocross! In this exciting hybrid sport, competitors race laps around a course that includes paved surfaces, grass, gravel trails, steep hills and more, often negotiating obstacles that may require them to dismount, carry and then remount their bicycle. Catch Cyclocrossers of all levels — beginner to pro — in action from sunup to sundown in Estabrook Park, which has hosted this unique event since 1996 with promotion by Hampshire Cycling Club (HCC). HCC was formed in 1977 by the owners of Rainbow Jersey Bicycles in Shorewood to promote amateur bicycle racing throughout Wisconsin and beyond. HCC is sponsored by Shorewood bike shop Rainbow Jersey Bicycles and Tim Hart, D.D.S. For more information, visit facebook.com/EstabrookParkCyclocross.

Fall Yard Clean-Up Saturday, November 9 9 a.m. – noon
Shorewoodians who want to spend time outside savoring the crisp fall air and working alongside fellow volunteers are needed for raking and general yard clean-up for elderly and disabled neighbors. No assignment takes more than two hours, and volunteers need bring only a rake, a means of transport and a can-do attitude. To sign up, contact Michelle Boehm at 414.698.4369 or email@example.com.
