Prize Parity at Flatlandia Kermesse

We're proud to announce that Half Acre Cycling is stepping up to sponsor cash prizes for the Women's Category 4 race at the <a href="">Flatlandia Kermesse,</a> bringing the women's 4 to parity with the men's 4 payout.

We believe every race should strive to make women's events on-par with the men's and provide full prize parity at all times.  We're happy to work with Flatlandia to make this possible at one of the first big events of the year.  Whether you're a man or woman, show your support for an awesome event with prize parity-- c'mon out and <a href="">race the Kermesse!</a>  If you're not a racer you can still support this great event by volunteering.

Wow!  Local bike shop <a href="">Johnny Sprockets</a> is donating a gift certificate as part of our growing raffle for the women's clinic, joining <a href="">Specialized</a>, <a href="">BH</a>, and <a href="">The Bike Shop</a>.  The only way to get in on the raffle is to register and attend the awesome clinic- just 2 days away!  Registration closes at noon central time tomorrow, <a href="">sign up now.</a>

<b>Clinic Details</b>: We'll be starting the day at the UIC Behavioral Sciences Building, 1007 W Harrison, Chicago.  You can enter via Polk or Harrison on the Morgan side.  The clinic will be in room 4105.  There is limited bike parking inside the building, so if possible, please either lock outside or leave your bike locked in your car.  If neither are an option, we have parking for about 20 bikes inside the building in halls and offices, but with 35+ registrants, there won't be room for everyone.  Attendees will have limited time to change into riding clothes before hitting the street, there's space in the UIC bathrooms.  Don't forget to bring a helmet and bag lunch and beverage.

Limited metered parking is available on Harrison.  Free on-street parking is available North of I-290 on Jackson or Van Buren west of Morgan or on side streets Morgan or Sangamon.   Our space for on-the-bike practice is the Walsh Construction parking lot, on the south side of Jackson between Morgan and Sangamon.  Huge thanks to <a href="">Walsh</a> for their help!</a>
