There will be a Chainlink training ride heading out tomorrow at 8am. It will be led by James Liu and the meet location will be the NE corner of Damen and Berteau. It will be gorgeous tomorrow. I'll be there.

Who else is going to join us?

This is a good time to find a 'cross bike - the season is ending and I'd be they start popping up pretty soon. Keep yer eyes peeled!

Comment by Geoffrey Harding on December 8, 2016 at 12:30pm
I'm still trying to find a used CX bike, this gives me a good reason to double my efforts. If I can find a bike by then I'm in! If anyone hears of someone selling a CX bike that is 54-56 please let me know.
