Happy New Year!

As we wrap up 2012, we can look back on an impressive year of cycling in the Chicagoland area, especially for women. The Lake Bluff and St. Charles criteriums were added to the road schedule, the Chicago Velo Campus added another venue for track racers, the Chicross Cup Series saw an impressive turnout in the women’s fields and the Venus de Miles women’s ride was added as a non-competitive event – whew! Thanks to all who make these events possible and for all the women who come out to make them fun. Get ready for 2013, it’s going to be even better!
There are no events scheduled for this weekend, so it’s prep time for the upcoming races. There’s snow on the ground and there’s a good chance you’ll be racing in it too. Get out and practice riding in the snow. Even if you’re not going to race, getting a little experience on a slippery surface will help improve your skills.
Events:
New Year’s Resolution Races – Held at the familiar Hilton Indian Lakes Resort in Bloomingdale, this series offers some fun field combinations for women including ¾ , 2/3 and UCI categories. Spectating will be very cool as well with six time National cyclocross champion, Tim Johnson competing. For a schedule of events click here.
US National CX Championships – Held in Badger Park in Verona, Wisconsin. Currently the course is covered in several inches of snow, which could make for a fun and interesting race, but it’s anyone’s guess what the conditions will be like for the series, which begins in just under 2 weeks.

Coming Up:
Women’s Dinner – Mark your calendar for this year’s women’s dinner at Kathy Corbett’s home. The event is scheduled for Saturday, January 26. More details to follow.
Have a safe and Happy New Year!
