OUTDOOR CYCLING for 2019 

PRACTICE LOCATION: Practices will be at the Lincoln Park Wilson Lot. We will stage in the south east corner of the lot. If booking a ride through Pace, please use the common location Dare2Tri. For an address, you can try to use 600 W. Wilson.  It works in some GPS apps, but it may not show up in certain apps or maps. Weiss Hospital is also close by (4646 N Marine Dr, Chicago, IL 60640) and would not be a bad address to use if you are having a hard time getting someone to drop you off at our practice location.

WHAT TO BRING: Please bring a bottle of water, sun screen, and a helmet to every practice. If you do not have your own helmet, we will have a program helmet available for use.

WEATHER UPDATES: If there is inclement weather and we are going to cancel practice for the day, we will notify you by 12 PM the day of practice via email.
