Although it's a little on the late side, we are planning a group ride from Ravenswood to Northbrook this Sunday.

Yeah, i was at the montrose practice last week when Micheal Y. announced that that would be the last one he's hosting, which was why i was asking to see if there were any other practices. And I did check theBoneBell a few times already, but it isnt updated.

Thanks anyways Kelvin! If only parks were better lit at night.

It may be getting dark too early for night practices... There was a 6pm xXx practice at montrose on wednesdays, but that ended last week. Who knows though, people still might be going up there?

Check for a list of practices.

I think there was a 5:45 ...

Anyone know of any practices in the city that is NOT held in the morning? I leave for school at 6am and get back around 3:30pm.

If your just starting out you can use a mountain bike, since they are no longer the fad one can be picked up pretty cheap, a 29er would be a great starter bike

Hey guys, I'm in need of a beginner's cross bike ~50cm ASAP, as cheap as possible. Please let me know if you know of anything that's available. Thanks!
