    Comcast Cares Day at Andres Park on 4/27/13 - Carpentersville, Illinois

    Come join CAMBr for the COMCAST CARES sponsored workday at Andres Park on Saturday, April 27th.

    With an estimated turnout of around 150-200 volunteers under our control, we are in need of 20 individuals who will direct groups of 10 people each. Work activities are going to range from trash pickup, invasive removal, skill park development, and trail clearance. Film crews will be on site to document the days activities, so we're looking to give CAMBr a very positive representation!

    Registration on the Comcast site gets you a shirt, coffee and snacks, and a box lunch afterwards.

    To register for the Comcast Cares Day, visit Comcast Cares Volunteers Portal

    **Note: If you do not want to signup using your Facebook account, send an email to andrespark@cambr.org with your participant names and shirt size, and we will pass the list manually to Comcast to register you. Comcast has confirmed that we can do this.**

    visit CAMBr - Chicago Area Mountain Bikers or www.facebook.com/cambrnorth for updates.

    Sub-9 Schooner Shakedown

    Just a reminder the Sub-9 Schooner Shakedown will take place NEXT SATURDAY, May 18, as part of the IMBA Great Lakes Regional Mountain Bike Summit at Brown County State Park (Nashville, IN).

    The Sub-9 Schooner Shakedown is an individual, time-trial, point to point race. Racers will compete against a clock while additional time bonuses are awarded for clearing the most difficult obstacles along the course. The 2013 course will feature a technically demanding, 3-mile section on the double-black diamond, Schooner Trace mountain bike trail. Riders will encounter natural rock outcrops combined with hand placed rock work to challenge even the most experienced - with plenty of penalty for failure in these hard-to-access ravines.


    Racing action begins at 5 p.m. All the details about the race can be found at www.schoonershakedown.com or check out all the summit details below!

    October 5th Race Date!


    • State Championship Mountain Bike Race for Iowa

    • End of season IMBCS XC race categories with many up for grabs who wins the series. Hey, it's like the lotto - you gotta play to win. So Show UP!

    • Fat Bike category will be racing for steaks and chops as prizes!

    • 4 Hour Marathon racing for cash and heads out at 11 a.m.

    • All normal XC IMBCS categories head out at 1 p.m. in waves.

    * Kids Race (Free Entry!!!) heads out at 3:30 p.m.



    A couple of dates to keep in mind for online registration..

    Date #1: Thursday, September 26th - A reminder that you must register online at USA Cycling by the evening of (9/26) to guarantee a shirt in the exact style and size you prefer. It's simple, when you register online - just choose long or short sleeve with the pull down menu, and then choose your size. Select quantity of 1 and you are set for the Bob Matthew's designed Mullet shirt.

    Date #2: The online registration will close a week from tomorrow on Thursday, October 3rd at 9 pm. You'll have to be content with whatever shirt size and style we have left in stock on race day as we will do a mass order by getting a set amount of shirts in various sizes and styles.

    Date #3: Not to worry, day of race registration will still be available on 10/5, but why not save some money and register online for the pre-registered discount?

    Did I mention Sam Auen - as in Mr. Tacopocalypse - will be there serving up the post race grub? That's right! Sam is certainly famous in the cycling community for his myriad of appearances doling out mouth watering taco fare to the masses - be it at the Cumming Tap, Farmer's Market, or now in his new East Village restaurant! Checkout his place here...

    Tacopocalypse | Devastatingly Good

    Did I mention Indianola's own Outside Scoop Ice Cream will be there with many flavors to tickle your tummy? That's right!

    Mr. Joe Doering is a former opera voice student star of mine who likes to compete in Tri's (that's okay, I'll forgive him for that) and has created his own small business in Indianola. Check out this video to watch Joe make a batch of goodness and think about how good this will taste post race...
