Tri State Tour Open For Registration-


It's not "a race", but if it was, I won last years Tri-State Tour, from Hammond to Kenosha and at the same time, loved every mile of this great new event.  

The buzz is building about the Tri-State Tour, so make sure to register for this ride that takes you from Indiana to Wisconsin.  It's fun, a great way to see the area and an amazing workout.
There are two dates for the Tri- State Tour, Sat. July 16th and Sun. August 7th, 2011.  

As a warning, bring your "A" game, cuz, I intend to repeat!

Racing or touring, this new event is a must try on your list of endurance events for the Chicago area, click here for more information and to register.
