Spring is right around the corner (we promise!) and that also means that Half Acre Cycling's <a href="http://gapersblock.com/">Gapers Block</a> Crits is fast approaching! We know you've already marked your calendars for the evenings of March 25-28 to race in Chicago's very own <a href="http://www.chicagoparkdistrict.com/parks/Calumet-Park/">Calumet Park</a>, but now you should also mark them for this Sunday night because that's when PREREGISTRATION opens!

You may notice that we're trying something a bit different this year. In order to make our annual practice criterium series even more beginner friendly, we've added a Cat 5 ONLY heat in addition to our traditional Cat 4/5 heat. And to sweeten the deal even more with some prizes our beginners, our favorite bike shop, <a href="http://johnnysprockets.com/">Johnny Sprockets</a>, is sponsoring the Cat 5's!

Keep your eyes peeled for more details and updates over the next few weeks. We hope you're just as excited as we are to ring in the road season next month!
