Sadie Hawkins Style Ride

Sadie Hawkins

After a spectacular week of warm weather, the weekend temps will be more typical to this time of year, which isn’t too bad at all. Lots of great events ahead, so be sure to get outside and enjoy all this Fall has to offer!


Estabrook Park & Beer Garden Cross – I say it every year and I’ll say it again, this is one of my favorite cross courses. It has some great technical elements and not too many power sections. It’s a beautiful park and with a free beer and brat for every legal aged racer, it’ll be a blast! For race information, click here.

Sadie Hawkins Style Ride – This is not your average race, but it’s fun and challenging, just the same. You’ll need to dress for the occasion and then you and a teammate will head out in search of treasures around the city. The team that makes it to all the destinations first wins, but there are lots of other surprises along the way. The best part is that all proceeds go to the Chicago Women’s Health Center.

Chicross Cup Series Race #7 – Moving right along, the Chicross Cup series heads to Emricson Park in Woodstock for Psi-clocross for Life. This course has evolved from an open power course to a more mixed skill cross course with a steep hill, a wooded section and even a sand pit. Practice your technical skills before heading out on Sunday! For race information, click here.

Coming Up:

Chi-cross Cup Series Races 8 & 9 – It’s a double-header weekend with the Hilton Indian Lakes Resort races. This one is always a favorite, as it turns into a two-day party weekend, since many of the participants opt to stay at the hotel on Saturday night. The course is on a golf course, but it’s anything but boring as it includes a steep hill, sand traps and some grassy section with rolling terrain. For race details, click here.

Cam-Rock Cross – If you head north to Madison, you can also have a two race weekend with Cam Rock on Saturday and TBD Cross on Sunday. Cam Rock Park is well known to mountain bikers with some great technical riding, so hopefully the promoters will include a bit of the technical aspects of the park along with the typical cross power sections. For race information, click here.

TBD Cross – This race will leave you guessing what the course will be until the gun goes off. It’s located in Hiestand Park in Madison, Wisconsin. Solve the mystery and head north for a little fun! For race information, click here.

Have a great weekend!
