Cocktails With Christian

The Chicago Area Mountain Bikers advocacy organization is hosting a meet-and-drink Sunday, Jan. 2 in Tinley Park with local hotshot pro Christian Vande Velde of Team Garmin-Transitions. Vande Velde has had some major successes at the top tier of the sport of cycling and this event will allow guests to down a pint with and ask training advice of one of the few Americans to ever wear pink. Other local pros, including ex-USPS rider Robbie Ventura, are expected to attend.

"Cocktails With Christian" will be at the Tin Fish (18201 S. Harlem, Tinley Park) from 1 to 4 p.m.

The event flyer is after the jump.
