Join the Comrades for an evening of bubbly beverages and casual chit chat to celebrate 7 years of glorious worker owned anti-capitalist rhetoric. Come rub elbows with some of Chicago finest wrenches and two wheeled aficionados. Bask in the eternal glow of a tray full of tamales.
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!
The shop will be closed Sunday May 1st for International Worker’s Day (May Day). Our regular hours will resume on Monday May 2nd.
If you wanted to celebrate the sacrifices workers have made for the 8 hour day, child labor restrictions, weekends, etc, in good company and support a wonderful non-for-profit we suggest swinging by the National Lawyers Guild‘s fundraiser party Saturday April 30th.
I’d also suggest stopping by the library in search of Carl Sandburg’s Chicago Poems. 1916.
Closed Sundays! As of October 1st, we resume fall/winter hours (11-7 weekdays, Saturday 10-6) and will be closed on Sundays until 2014. This will give us Comrades a chance to get out to Cyclocross races, allow us some quality time together outside of the shop, and give us a break from the 60+ hours a week each of us has been toiling in the shop this past season. 2013 has been an amazing year thus far (it’s still 70 degrees outside and we’re busy as ever), and you’ve outpaced our expectations for a bustling summer season. Thanks for your support and, of course, come out and see us race at this year’s Chi Cross Cup.
