Afterglow is a cyclocross race and fundraiser for West Town Bike and Blackstone Bicycle Works put on by long time friends and supporters at Chicago Cuttin Crew. It's an ultra laid back and great for first timers and seasoned CXers. If you are interested in cyclocross racing and have any questions contact Mikey at 312-656-1953 or email@example.com. With Bikes And Roses joining us this year, we have a big juniors field (teenagers) to look forward to.
Our 5th annual celebration and fundraiser, Bikecitement Night! on 14 November was an awesome success because of your great support and enthusiastic participation.
130 people gathered at the Revolution Brew Pub (Thank You Josh Deth!) to honor our many partners, volunteers and supporters who help us educate and train the youth of Chicago. Together we envisioned a city where biking provides access to better lives and strengthens communities.
The over-arching goals of West Town Bikes are to promote bicycling in the city of Chicago, to educate youth with a focus on under-served populations, and to foster and serve Chicago's growing bicycling community. While maintaining headquarters and a workspace in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood, WTB is a city-wide service provider for youth programs in the city of Chicago.
This video captures the story of a summer project at West Town Bikes, where a group of interns learned about urban planning in order to design a bike friendly neighborhood that is more accessible to young people. Free Spirit Media put a lot of work into the video. Their skills and guidence in production, recording and editing made The Circuit look great. Free Spirit Media provides education, access, and opportunity in media production to over 500 underserved urban youth every year and we greatly appreciate their partnership.
