Hello from Half Acre Cycling and welcome to our webpage.  We are a Chicago based team (some offshoots here 'n there) who ride/race the gamut of disciplines: track, mountain, cyclocross, and road (including gravel ones!).  We love to ride and race our bikes. As a team we try to put on events and support causes that bring new racers to the scene and try to make racing fun.  We challenge ourselves, but try to keep it all in perspective. Check out the tabs to learn more about us and our fabulous sponsors that support us and if you have questions please email us at hello at half acre cycling dot org.  Hope to see you out there on whatever two wheels you're rolling.


PB's Excellent Adventure

There are fit dudes and there are California fit dudes. I thought I was a fit dude. I’ve had good winter training. I’m hitting my targets. Then I toed the line at Bonelli Park and found out I was not a California fit dude.

Only finished half the race, was doing okay, ended up going to the hospital.

Winter Fat Bike Report

Fat bikes are in full swing! Each year it seems to be getting bigger. With more options from weekly and monthly group rides to organized race series and pop-up races in peoples backyards. So far the snow has not been a factor in the southern Midwest. but that does not stop the festivities. You don't have a fat bike? Most of the race series provide a rental service you can reserve in advance.

Cyclocross in July

It’s a brave new dawn at the Autobahn, essentially a fancy country club, but instead of golf holes, it has a motor racing track. We have the whole place. To. Our. Selves. And that includes the full length course.
