They’re predicting colder temps, rain and snow next week, but this weekend we’re set with perfect crisp fall weather and sunshine. Don’t waste a good day inside, instead, get out and enjoy the many events this city has to offer.

Chicross Cup Race Series Events #8 & #9 –This double header weekend is a favorite with the younger racers, as they typically enjoy the weekend away, racing and enjoying a party scene in the non-race hours. The race is on the golf course at the Hilton Indian Lakes Resort. You’d think that would boring, but the promoters do a great job on course design. The features include a steep hill, several sand traps, undulating grass sections and paved cart sections. Head out for one or both days! For race information, click here.
Kringle Kross – Named the official state pastry of Wisconsin, the Kringle Danish not only brings you a favorite treat, but a great race as well. Head just west of Milwaukee for a fun-filled cross race. For details on the event, click here.
