Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Is there a Chicago critical mass

Just moved out here from Philly and was wondering if Chicago had a critical mass and where it met up. Also any other news and info on events pertaining to chicago would be helpful.

Unfortunately so.

Check with for information about cycling in Chicago. Also, check out Yojimbo's Garage over on North Clybourn. Marcus is cool, and he can help you out. And check out his website: If you click on the picture, you'll enter his website, and when you see the links title on the top of the page, if you click on that, you get some info on some of the cycling culture in Chicago.

Chicagoans! Are you going? I'd maybe like to meet some people and go on this months' ride.

welcome to chicago.
Did they collect $200 when you arrived? If not, just paypal me.

There is a nice race series in effect right now that you might want to investigate:
and sure to be more!
Group rides also get posted here frequently, so keep you eyes peeled.

as far as the Critical Mass rides - no clue. I avoid them.
