Welcome 2014As we wrap up 2013, we can reflect on another great cycling season in Chicago. It was pretty much non-stop from the early season races (in and outdoor) to main events of the summer and then throughout the entire fall with the fastest growing cycling discipline – cyclo-cross. I hope it’s been a good year for you and that you are well on your way to planning for the 2014 season.
In this final weekend of the year, we have been given the gift of warm(er) weather. Take advantage of the almost spring-like temps we’ll have this weekend and ride outside! Next week it’s back to the cold stuff and although there are many brave souls in this area, not everybody wants to ride outside when it’s freezing!
Here’s what’s coming up in the next few weeks:
Cyclo-Cross National Championships – Still one more major series left to go! The national championships for cyclo-cross are being held in Boulder, Colorado from January 8-12. The races will be held at Valmont Bike Park which is an outdoor bike park which has everything from basic trails to extreme jumps. The cross course will be challenging, but I’m pretty sure there won’t be any jumps.
