This is a great time of the year to promote the sport and encourage new racers.  And there are a number of “learn to race” events coming up.  Spread the word and let’s get road racing going: 

  • This Sunday, March 16th at 10AM, Tuxedo Thunder Cycling is putting on a Road Race Clinic at LaBagh Woods .   USAC coach Eric Blankenship of Gambit Race Smart will be teaching the fundamentals of racing including pacelines, group riding, and cornering, as well as the basics of a training program.    There’s a helmet raffle (thanks Bike Lane) and and free coffee (thanks The Wormhole.)   Register Here
  • Also  Half Acre Cycling is putting on 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, and is a great intro to racing. Racing starts Monday, March 31st and goes for 4 evenings through Thursday April 3rd.  Races are on the south lakefront in Calumet Park, starting at 6PM.   Looks like they are about 80% full so get registered.
  • The South Chicago Wheelmen will be doing their Tuesday Nigh training series at the Joliet Autobahn starting April 22, and then will be April 29, May 6, May 13, June 24, and August 12.  This is also a great venue for both experienced and new racers.  Its only 45 minutes out there from the city - well worth it.
  • Also, check out the CBR calendar for all the early season races: Kenosha is the next three weekends (16th, 23rd, 30th), then first race of the Pave Liga is the Spring Super Crit on April 5th, followed by MATTS on April 6th, and xXx’s Lincoln Park Crit.
