I wanted to post this for anybody who is interested. A group of us has started a Thursday Night Criterium practice at a bankrupt housing development in the Northland up by Maple Woods. Practice starts some time between 6:15 and 6:30 until dark. You can map quest to N. College Ave. & N. Walrond Ave., Kansas City, MO 64119 . This crit practice is a show and go event on a .7 mile course. Although there is usually no traffic, the course is not closed to the public. Hope to see this event grow in size from the original 7 of us, so pass the word.
