I felt a little like Dorothy earlier this week as I headed out on a training ride. It was cold and crazy windy! I thought to myself… what am I doing? Perhaps if we all tap our heels three times we would be transported into a warmer sunnier Chicago? We can always hope! Wind, rain, or maybe even snow, the races will continue this weekend. It’s spring in Chicago – never a dull moment.
Lincoln Park Criterium – It seems like we’ve had a reversal of seasons for the races at Montrose.
For last year’s cross race we enjoyed balmy and unseasonably warm weather. Fast forward to spring 2013 and we’re looking at chilly temps for Saturday’s criterium. The buzz on the street is that Chicagoans are hearty racers and will be there for this local event.
