We will be closed this Sunday the 28th for an important landmark in the Chicago cycling scene. After a wonderful summer of road biking, muggy commuting, and mountain biking we are welcoming the arrival of cyclocross season with its unofficial #crossishere race Relay Cross this Sunday (8/28/16) in Jackson Park! There are still a few weeks before the Chicago Cross Cup kicks into full swing but Relay Cross is an absolute blast and a fun way to shake off the cobwebs of this particular racing discipline with the help of a teammate.
We will be CLOSED ON SUNDAYS from now until March.
8/28- Relay Cross
9/11- LaBagh Woods CX
10/2- Hopkins Park CX (We throw this one!)
Thank you guys! If you have any questions about cyclocross, racing, or how to get started please don’t hesitate to ask us!
I’m not entirely certain how this all started. Dave Markman and I talked about it for a while, though I couldn’t tell you when that began. Bobby Wintle was off the walls with excitement, but how (and when) did I become involved in this?
I suppose none of that matters now. At this point it’s been slightly more than a month since I left Banff. Antelope Wells was two weeks ago. All of this is just to say that the Tour Divide was an intensely strange experience for me. Returning home was all too natural. Answering questions regarding the trip left me feeling increasingly disconnected from my involvement in the race, as if it were some book I had read long ago and hadn’t considered for quite some time.
Rather than scroll through the back pages of my mind trying to attach emotions to locations I struggle to recall, I’m going to leave photos. I’m certain I’ll arrive at a point wherein I can organize, collect, and put to words all the thoughts I’ve been hesitant to spend much time with, but this will not be that point.
We are closed Sunday 5/29/16 for Gravel Metric and Monday 5/30/16 for Memorial Day. We return to our normal hours Tuesday 5/31/16! Gonna use this picture from a few Gravel Metrics ago because I still really like it.
Ever wanted to feel what a real deal dual suspension mountain bike felt like on the trails but you live in Chicago? Today at the Palos Park staging area Bailey will be out with Salsa Cycles with bikes to demo! They’ll have the Redpoint, Horsethief, Bucksaw, Spearfish and Beargrease all ready to try out so don’t sleep on it. Here’s a link to the event – Salsa Demo
