XXX Racing-AthletiCo returned to Back of the Yards on Wednesday for the Active Transportation Alliance’s 3rd Annual Sherman Park Bike Day. The event in Sherman Park, site of our annual criterium, celebrates kids and their bikes, providing safety lessons and a fun, traffic-free location to ride. Participants enjoyed hot dogs and free helmets and enthusiastically took part in several short races adjudicated by members of the team. We always appreciate the neighborhood’s graciousness in welcoming our race each year, and we were happy to help give the kids of Sherman Park an afternoon to safely enjoy riding their bikes.
