Women of Chainlink Chicago

Women are the fastest growing group of cyclists so we recently expanded our women's cycling resources section and launching this group. The "Women of Chainlink Chicago" group will have real-time updates with articles, events, clinics, product reviews, races, and lots of bike-related goodness. This group will also give local women cyclists a way to directly connect with each other.

Did anyone else try to ride on the ice today? 3 Replies

I did! and I fell ... womp!  In my defense, I was on Artisian near Hirsch and didn't know the pot holes were now filled past the rim with ice (pretty dark).  I'd been inside working since 11am. Love…Continue

Happy International Women's Day 2019 all you AWESOME ladies!  

Come one...Come all to the Driftless Randonneurs, based out of beautiful Western Wisconsin.  The Driftless Randonneurs has an exceptional 2019 calendar and registration is open for all of the events. Some highlights include: 

  • 12 weekends to ride Randonneur USA events in Southwestern Wisconsin in the Driftless region of Wisconsin with plenty of hills to enjoy
  • tri-hosting Midwest Brevet Week with Quad City and Minnesota Randonneurs with theme of "Build your own Brevet Week"
  • Tour of Driftless 1000K Brevet June 21st
  • Randonneurs USA Dart Populaire Team Event in July
  • October Galena weekend co-hosted with Quad City Randonneurs

The Regional Brevet Administrator (RBA) for the region is Greg Smith, who lives near Richland Center.  Greg started the region because he felt the area of SW Wisconsin is ideal for cycling with a wide network of paved and lightly traveled roads and he wanted to share some of his favorite rides and routes with others.  Greg has the additional goal of increasing the interest and participation in randonneuring within Wisconsin.

Come out and give randonneuring in southwestern Wisconsin and try and see what Randonneurs USA is all about!

Hey everyone!

I'm doing some recruitment for youth and adult art mentors for arts programming serving girls, femme identities, trans and GNC individuals. If you know someone that may be interested or are interested yourself please visit our fb event pages. I know this is a great group of women to draw from AND I have some aspirations about having the kids decorate bikes and having a bike parade!

Community art event for youth and guardians this Sunday:

Informational meet up for those interested in becoming adult mentors on 10/15:[%7B%5C%22surface%5C%22%3A%5C%22page%5C%22%2C%5C%22mechanism%5C%22%3A%5C%22page_upcoming_events_card%5C%22%2C%5C%22extra_data%5C%22%3A[]%7D]%22%2C%22has_source%22%3Atrue%7D

Are you racing Barry-Roubaix for the first time or want to be more prepared?
