“It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we’ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark and we’re wearing sunglasses.” – Elwood Blues

“Hit it!” – Jake Blues



Thinking about trying cyclocross? Now’s your chance!

Dust off your cyclocross bike, your mountain bike or your single speed. If you’ve ever thought about racing cyclocross but have been intimidated, this is your opportunity. Field sizes are smaller than Chicago Cyclocross Cup and race starts have been staggered to avoid overlapping fields. No intimidation here. Just you against you. See what you’re made of.

Cyclocross racing comes to the North Shore Saturday, November 9th.

Not interested in racing? See why cyclocross is a great spectator sport. We’ll have local food options and a beer garden. Bring the kids; cyclocross is a family-friendly event.
