Chicago Criteriums – Photos coming soon

We moved on Friday, but we failed to schedule internet and cable connections until just before our move, which means… we’ve been without internet for a few days.  Thankfully, the installers come this evening so I should able to get the photos from yesterday posted soon.

In the meantime, I’ve included a few pics of the new house for your viewing pleasure!  These pics were all taken prior to our moving in, so the “stuff” pictured belongs to the previous owner.

I spent the day (ALL day) downtown, at the inaugural Chicago Criterium. I shot over 1000 pictures, and now have to sort through, edit, and upload for your viewing pleasure. Unfortunately, that will take me a while, but I hope to have them up by the end of the day tomorrow.

In the meantime, take a look at a few of the pictures from today.

Chicago Criterium

We’re gearing up for Sunday!  We’ve debated several times whether we will drive to UIC, park there (I already pay for parking for work!), and then ride our bikes over to the race or just pay to park downtown.  We’re reluctant to park downtown because of the prices, but also because we can’t keep the bikes on top if we’re parking in a garage.  We’ve also debated whether to bring the team tent.

I had a little extra time on my hands today, so I scoured the Chicago Criterium site today, looking for into about setting up team tents.  Since I couldn’t find anything, I emailed the only email address I could find (under the volunteer link) and asked.  Turns out, there is an amatuer team staging area, and I received an email with the staging area pass that will let us pull up to the area and drop off the tent.  We won’t be able to park there, but at least we won’t have to haul the tent all over grant park!

See you all on Sunday!
