Reminder: Gapers Block Crit Series Starts Tonight

Are you ready to race? Hopefully all those training miles have started to pay off because tonight is the first night of the week-long Gapers Block Criterium series in Calumet Park.

Day-of registration will be open: $20 for the men's 4/5 and $10 for the women's 3/4. Click here for more information.

The Gapers Block races are some of the few bike races in the Chicago city limits and only 20 minutes from the Loop. They're great to spectate, but it's even more fun to participate.
