Tour of West Town 2014 at Humboldt Park

July 5, 2014 from 11am to 3pm
This Saturday, July 5, we will tour the Community Area of West Town, beginning at 11:00 AM and meeting in Humboldt Park at the intersection of California and Division. West Town, Community Area #24 sits 3 miles northwest of The Loop. As with many Chicago communities, there is a West Town neighborhood and Community Area, and the two have different borders.

Tour of the Near West Side at Union Park

March 29, 2014 from 11am to 3pm
The Near West Side is Community Area #28, sitting 2 miles west of the Loop. It is an area whose history is as long as Chicago’s.  It came of age in the Civil War era of Victorian buildings and a city that was coming into its own as it took on the world in industry.  It is bounded by the Chicago and Northwestern railroad to…See More

Liz replied to David's discussion Clipless pedals: Crankbrothers Candy 2 or Shimano PD-M530?
"This confuses me as well.... There's no difference between the clipless side of my campus style pedals and the pedals that are straight up clipless (no platform) as long as I put them at the same tension setting.   Don't know who…"

Liz replied to David's discussion Clipless pedals: Crankbrothers Candy 2 or Shimano PD-M530?
"+1. I've gotten the hang of quickly flipping the pedal so it doesn't even really register for me anymore.  Even when touring I usually carry a pair of flip flops or something similar for showering or going to a pool, and like having…"

Hey, for the IL beach SP ride, would you mind if myself and Brittany were to share a site with you and cam? we have a 2 (and 3) person tent of our own. I wasnt sure how this all worked so I put our names down on the spread sheet but that can easily be changed.
