Sign me up then. Seriously, who do I talk to?

It's not just the damage to the turf (which isn't significant imo), it's the reaction from the joggers, dog walkers, sports practices, etc.

Are bandit cross races generally tough on Parks?
I'm asking because I'm interested in participating in something along the lines of a bandit cross race, but I'd rather not give cyclists a bad name for tearing up parks.
I would assume that a couple dozen people riding on a combination of park trails and off-road wouldn't have too much of an environmental impact.

What about "bandit cross"?

I guess the only victims there are the Chicago Public Parks themselves...

A couple teams have open practices. Check the bonebell and chicrosscup for more info.
