After 23 years the US Pro Criterium Championships moved from Downers Grove Illinois to Glencoe. Sorry to see Downers Grove go as it was one of the longest running races in the nation and probably the closest to a cycling tradition the US has. […]

The Church of the Big Ring is back in session, hopefully I will be faithful in attending weekly. The pastor welcomed me back with open arms and then promptly reminded me of my sins. Yes I was back on the bike for the second […]
Chicago is not exactly road or off-road nirvana for cyclists so we take what we can get but there are some hidden gems. I was introduced to one by Fabio Orlandi – the Des Plaines River Trail.
As of today Christian is in 3rd place in the Tour De France and i’m in front of an LCD display and keyboard 40lbs heavier than that fine day.
Chicago has been a little Seattle of late – wet. Very wet. Mow the lawn in August wet. No scorched earth anywhere to be found wet. The USPro Crit weekend was no different. Wet and wild. The rain let up for the pro race […]
See the pics! – Tested out my new Nikon Zoom lens at stage 1 and 2 of the Tour of Elk Grove. Chris Horner and Fast Freddie Rodriguez from team Predictor Lotto were in attendance plus all the top US pros. Overheard Freddy saying […]
I made my first remote connection in 1992, using a Macintosh “cube”. BBS’es and file transfers were the purpose. Soon I was online with both Windows and Macs using programs such as Crosstalk. While intriguing, it wasn’t until I logged onto the Internet in […]

First the Track (Velodrome) season ends. Then the road season. It’s Cyclocross time! Cyclocross (Wikipedia – Cyclo-cross) is an excellent way to stay in shape, improve your technical skills and stay sharp on the bike. Or you could cut the crap and say – Cross is like doing a 1hr individual TT dragging a fifty pound boulder on a rope interrupted by jumping on and off the bike at speed just to check and make sure you’re suffering enough. And suffer you will…
I’ve tried some stupid things in my quest for cross success (see image). There was the year I commuted on a fixed gear for 200 miles a week for a month prepping for the state championship. Or the year I did nothing but spin […]
