Andres Park

It’s going to be a quiet weekend on the race front, but the weather forecast is bright, so it’ll be a great time to get out and ride. There’s plenty to do outdoors, so get out and enjoy a great weekend. Read on for details…

We Need Your Vote!
CAMBr (Chicago Area Mountain Bikers) is in the running to receive a trail building grant for one of their exciting new efforts in the NW suburbs – Andres Park. All you need to do to help out is log onto the web site on April 21st and vote for them.

The project is important for a few reasons:
1 It adds trail riding opportunities to the NW suburbs that do not exist today.
2 It alleviates the pressure on the Palos System, which due to a lack of other trails sees rider numbers well above what is recommended and sustainable.

Whitnall Park Criterium – This is one of my favorite crit courses. It’s located in a park near Milwaukee and the race runs loops around the perimeter. There’s a fair amount of climbing, but not too much. The downhill is fast with a sweeping right turn – lots of fun! For more information, click here

Have a great weekend!Dig This
