    Chicago vs. New York 12/10

    I'm too lazy to write this whole thing out again and since it's happening in two days and the chifg site is down ...

    Julio (CHI) and Brean aka msngr (NYC/CHI) will be racing from Hyde Park to Logan Sq. (really it should not be wicker park) on Sunday December 10th. Start time 1PM at corner of 56th/Kimbark. This is a result of various ***** talking on both sides ... somehow bees got involved ... now there's a race because we're cyclists and we solve problems by racing.

    Come early to our place for doughnuts, fruit, bagels, etc. PM me for address. We'll open our door at 10:30. or earlier if you really want to be here.

    sorry, guys. the race had to be postponed due to an illness in the family (hospital stuff).

    we've decided to race each other with helmet cams and (after some editing and syncing) make people watch the race from our perspectives on two televisions side-by-side. maybe we'll youtube it also.

    sorry to hear about family issues, they are never fun.

    But the delay will just allow more time for trash talking and hype, which is always good for something like this. Any word on possible new date? Are there any rules to this whole thing? or is just straight up first man wins? Also, whats up with the German TV thing? How did they find you and stuff?

    because i wasn't really paying attention to the OP when I read it, I thought this was going to be a race from chicago TO new york. that would be pretty awesome.
