A while back, I learned that Beverly's July 18 criterium race would be part of the Prairie State Cycling Series for the first time. I just learned from a friend who is part of our neighborhood host group that there will be another big change this year.
The event will include TWO races: Cat. 1 & 2 women and Cat. 1 & 2 men. Check back for more details in the coming weeks.
The festival area at the 107th & Longwood start/finish features food and drink by neighborhood favorites including Rainbow Cone and Argus Brewery. There will be live music - band TBA.
If folks are interested in coming down early, I'd be happy to give a scenic tour of Beverly and Morgan Park. If you've never ridden here, you're in for a treat. Traffic is light on most neighborhood streets, and the scenery is beautiful. It's a great place to watch an evening of exciting racing action.
Hey Ann, thanks for the great news. I'm thrilled they finally added a women's race. See you there!
Jen - I thought you'd be excited to hear that news.
