3 Replies

Trails were sloppy again this weekend so I used the last cyclocross of the season race as an excuse to get out and ride. Still got yelled at. Some of the new dads out there will find this familiar.Continue

Not going to lie, it hasn't been easy (being a Mountain Biker). You grow up surrounded by mountains and learn to find refuge in them every day. Suddenly, when its time to move out and pursue more…Continue

"Well we did, the day before. I spent the whole day with the baby. There was no genuine yelling done though. I actually got home before they were getting ready to leave so she was pleasantly surprised and I got to stay with the baby and she got to go…"

"Try reversing the roles and see who does the "yelling.""

Marcelo Marcos replied to Yasmeen's discussion What Are You Thankful For?
"Thankful for snow thinning out the crowds in the trails and getting rid of all the bugs, specially when camping :) Looking forward to it, finally. "

Any plans for winter/snow riding?

Seems like I'll have to make another one of these videos soon.Anyone have any winter/snow riding plans or goals? What's the word out on this Chicago winter? It will be my third, but previous ones have been rather mild. Are people expecting this one to be a rough one? If there's more than two big snows like last year I might be able to make it out there and film again.See More

"I was unaware this was available without a premium account. Good share. Glad you didn't share any of the stuff out west with features. Unfortunately trail access is becoming increasingly threatened everywhere."

"This is pretty good info man, thanks! I'd never seen that online version of the regional map. When I first pieced together the route I was a bit nervous, didn't even know if my metra card would work. Now that I feel more comfortable I…"

"Great video Marcelo.  The RTA should pay you for showing us all the advantages of PACE and the CTA! The huge forest preserve system in Southwest Cook and DuPage counties can be accessed by at least six different buses, some from the Midway…"

"That's the orange line to midway followed by a pace bus out to Palos Hills, there's a couple options you can take depending on the day, time, and what part of the trails you want to ride. I used to wait for my buddies to head out there to…"

"Very cool!  What bus do you take and to what stop? Would love to explore more of the palos single track, but it's hard to get there from the city without a car."

Video: Day in the Life of a Chicago mtn bike commuter

This Saturday must have been one of the last fair weather days to ride the trails. Got the green light from the wife to head out to the trails on Saturday and had to watch our newborn all day Sunday as a result (not a bad tradeoff). That gave me some time to do some editing, so I made a video of my Saturday commute out to the trails.I tried something different this time around. If you like longer format videos with some ramblings, click on below. Otherwise, plenty of short 1 min videos on the…See More
