South Chicago Wheelmen

Bicycle Racing since 1923

Tuesday Night Criterium Series

The new venue for the Tuesday Night Series is Crete Monee High School. Meet in the southern most parking lot on the south (new) campus.  We will keep this site as well as Facebook updated with any newsworthy rumormongering! The 2014 series is aiming to be up and running by the end of April. In the meantime, we are running a mercilessly brutal group ride out of the GoodSpeed Cycles bike shop parking lot in Homewood, IL. Currently, we are sticking to the weekends, 7:45 am, so long as the roads are rideable- RE: above 30 degrees. Contact us if you have specific questions.

Check out our Tuesday Nights at the Autobahn omnium series! Every fourth Tuesday from April to September.  Super duper awesome prizes and bragging rights to be liberally awarded- but you’ll have to be there to get ‘em! 

The Wheelmen run a very popular Tuesday Night Criterium USAC race training series from April through September, with an emphasis on rider development in the most popular racing format held in the USA. SCW’s Tuesday Night Series is now a USA Cycling Competitive event. Category 5 racers can use the race toward an upgrade. This will be happening at Crete Monee High School.

This is a great way to get serious training or as an introduction to bike racing. Somewhere you can do what you can and learn about the sport. To participate in these training races, you must have a USAC license, annual or daily. Both are available at the event. Helmets are mandatory. Be sure to look at the additional info on the Tuesday night races including races results.
