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. The key to remember about West Town is that like Chicago, it is an area of neighborhoods.  They have their own histories.  They have their…See More

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.
