Gravel Grinders

Do you enjoy riding smooth crushed limestone or find the North Branch Trail's parallel dirt paths irresistible? Hardcore enough to tackle the Dirty Kanza 200 or Trans Iowa 300? All of the above? Somewhere in between? Then this group is for you! Post and discuss anything related to riding crunchy or loose surfaces.See More

Thanks for your comment! I know there are dutch bike shops in Chicago. We started with the export of a classic dutch bike brand named Union and I'm trying to see what's going on in several bike cities! We believe Copenhagen Cyclery could be a great partner for us.

OK, I saw a ride that goes on Saturday but yeah, something tells me that on Saturday we may be indoors. If you train during the week, maybe we could work something out. I'm a bit intimidated by the whole team talk. But I could pick up my game.

Yes, my primary bike is an early 80's Schwinn Continental fixie conversion. I kind of love it, but it is a bit heavy. I'm casually looking around for something a bit lighter - but not so fancy as to be expensive - in other words another $50 or $100 old bike to convert. I also have an early 80's Trek 500 road bike which I use for the occasional tour or when the Schwinn is on the operating table or whatever.

re: my blurry icon, it says Waystn Cycles. But Hasty or Waysted or whatever would be funnier! The shop sticker if from the store the bike came from I guess. The sticker is long gone or I'd take a better shot of it. Here is a bit more info about the shop.
