  • Jon Skaggs and his crew from Tuxedo Thunder Cycling are putting on a Road Race Clinic at LaBagh Woods on Sunday, March 16th at 10AM.  For anyone thinking about or new to racing, this is a great way to learn the fundamentals. Professional cycling coach Eric Blankenship of Gambit Race Smart will be hosting. There’s a limit of 75, so get signed up.
  •  Half Acre Cycling is also hosting a beginners racing clinic on Sunday, March 30th.  Contact Half Acre/ Erica Gaddy via email for more information
  • The ​Gapers Block Crit series p/b Half Acre Cycling is open for registration. There are 4 consecutive days of racing, starting Monday, March 31st through Thursday April 3rd.  Races are on the south lakefront in Calumet Park, starting at 6PM.    This is a Cat 4/5 event for both men and women fields, and an excellent opportunity to improve your early season racing skills.  Fields are limited to 50, and are filling up fast.  Check out these videos and photos from previous editions.  
  • Word from SCW is that their Tuesday Nigh training series at the Joliet Autobahn is back for 2014.  Details are being finalized but dates are April 22, April 29, May 6, May 13, June 24, and August 12.  This is a really awesome venue. Don’t let it being in Joliet turn you off - cut out of work a half hour early and its no problem!  
  • If you haven’t had a chance to go through the 2014 schedule in detail, we encourage you to take a close look.  Most of our long-time favorite races are there, as well as a number of new races, particularly in the Milwaukee area. This is going to be a great road season!
  • Speedy recovery wishes out to Craig Heywood who suffered a stroke last week.  Craig is a very well-regarded and respected Wisconsin USA Cycling official.  “Get well soon!”
