Cherry Blossom race a possibility?

Next Saturday in New Jersey is the Cherry Blossom Challenge circuit/road race. It's part of some county festival that is a few weeks long or whatever, and on this Saturday is the race. If it's like any other festival races, it could very well draw a huge crowd of spectators.

The location is about an hour and a half away from school if I have the right parking lot according to Google Maps. I'm going to see if one of my teammates wants to go, since we are not racing at Dartmouth next weekend. I'm just debating now if I really want to get up that early for a 7:00 start (would be about 4:30 departure to get there by 6ish).

Now, I may still be going to Dartmouth with the Kutztown University team, but I'm going to think about that this week. If I decide not to go to Dartmouth for whatever reasons, then I will debate on doing this Cherry Blossom Challenge at Essex County Branch Brook Park in Newark, NJ. I emailed one of the race directors/promoters for a few more details of the course, to make sure it is worthwhile going if I/we do. More on this in a few days.

One last thing, I've posted on the right column information about the 2009 Track season at Valley Preferred Cycling Center. Be sure to check it out!
