Hey all

I recently moved to Chicago from Australia, and was wanting to get back into bikes. In a past life (minus a few years, minus a number of kgs) I was mainly into track but also very keen on road TTs... I live nearish the loop in Chicago - I was wondering if anyone had some recommendations for clubs/groups in Chicago who are riding/training, and preferably have a couple of nutters who are into TT. I'm expecting a pretty cold/lonely winter, would be great to know of some people doing basement turbo sessions etc and or heading out of the city riding before winter comes.

Thanks!

Pat

Pat, I'm in Chicago right now visiting my family. It's my grandson's 2nd birthday. XXX is one of the biggest clubs in the city. Check out their website since they have a bunch of rides in all different types of riding every week. I'm riding with my nephew today. He's on a high school cycling team and developing well.

I live about 50 miles south. We should ride on my next trip up to the city.

When I lived in Wisconsin about ten years ago XXX Racing club was growing fast.
Raced against them on the Kenosha velodrome and Northbrook velodrome. They were connected with Yo Jimbo's Garage, a bike shop not far from the Loop: Yojimbo’s Garage is a single-location, brick and mortar bicycle shop on Chicago’s near North side: 1310 N Clybourn Ave, established in 1997.

Get in touch with them I'd say.
