REGISTRATION:

Pre-Register online at BikeReg

Preregistration is $50 for men and $35 for women/juniors for all five days. You must hold a current USA Cycling annual license to pre-register. Purchase yours at www.usacycling.org

OR register in-person the day of the events. In-person registration is $20 for men and $15 for women per event. If you do not hold a current annual USA Cycling license, you must purchase one for $10 per day.

WOMEN! TATI Cycles is donating a $35 gift certificate to every cat 4 woman who registers for the full series. It's like racing for free!

BRING YOUR LICENSE! No license, you gotta buy the one-day. All USACycling rules apply. Every rider MUST wear an approved helmet.

PRIZES don’t exist yet. We’ll hustle up some merch for series winners, but your prize here is more racing experience and the mass start or finish points to move up!

DIRECTIONS If you follow online directions you’ll get off the I-90 skyway at 92nd, the first exit after/before the toll, and pay $3 each way every day. Instead, we recommend exit the Dan Ryan I-94 at 63rd (exit 58B), go east on 63rd, south on King, and take South Chicago Ave. Left on 95th, right on Ewing, left on 100th (teeny cobblestone underpass under the tracks, not on google maps), left on G. You can park on Ave G. NOTE that we will close the 95th street entrance to the park at 6pm, hence you must approach the park via 100th.

HELD UNDER USA CYCLING PERMIT #2009-336.

Special thanks to the Illinois Cycling Association, 10th Ward Alderman John Pope, the 4th District police, the Mayor’s Office of Special Events, and xXx Racing-Athletico.

This series is going to be a lot of fun, and Half Acre (especially Julie Popper) put a lot of hard work into making it happen. There are very few opportunities to watch real bike racing within our city's limits, so come on down!

If you find me and mention that you read about this race series on the chainlink, I'll give you a $5 gift certificate to my shop! I'm easy to find -- All the Team TATI people will be watching together and wearing orange, just ask for J.
