Can't wait to see you guys there!
Did you sign up for bike transport?
Don't forget to let us know you're in by clicking "attending" here
We have 39 people already on the "Race" page... can we get to 50??
We had 45 in San Diego, let's go rock Chicago DC TRI!
peer pressure! I'm in.
Just signed up! I can not wait to race in the windy city.
Just heard from USAT. We've got 56 members registered for bike transport!!!
If you haven't already, make sure to secure bike transport today before we begin outreach outside the Club.
In! Thanks for taking the lead, Andrea!
I have signed up!
In. Olympic relay, team DC Tri Hardest.
That's a fun group heading to Chicago; will be looking for relay teammates.
Ears are also open for lodging, flights.
A few updates:
1. Register for bike transport first!
If you're considering registering for Chicago - please REGISTER FOR BIKE TRANSPORT FIRST. We are nearing capacity in the truck, and we want to ensure you have secured bike transport before you register for the race.
2. Where to stay?
A list of hotels is posted the race website: http://chicago.triathlon.org/event_info/accommodations
We've identified three options that are very close to each other and to the race site. Folks interested in staying together should book at one of these options while there's still plenty of availability. (I'm booked at the Hostel.)
- HI Chicago Hostel, $38-99 per night
- Essex Inn Chicago, $169 per night
- Hilton Chicago Event Headquarter Hotel, $234 per night (better rates may be available with USAT or other discounts)
3. Bike drop-off and pick-up days
Mark your calendars now. We are all responsible for picking up our bikes from the truck on the designated drop-off and pick-up days (currently scheduled for Thursday, June 26 and Monday, June 30). There will not be a place to store bikes that don't get picked up by you or a proxy on the designated days. We'll get instructions closer to the race but similar to San Diego, we'll need to remove bike computers and pedals from our bikes.
Let me know if you have any questions at this point.
Only 4 more spots remain in the bike transport truck!
Sign up for bike transport if you haven't! Even if you plan to register for the race, grab a spot for your bike on the transport truck now and register for the race later.

I'm in ... now just have to worry about the training
Bike Transport to Chicago is officially sold out. We've got 85 folks from the DC area heading to Chicago in June!
See my post above with information about lodging and dates for your calendars.
Is there a waitlist for bike transport?
Not sure but I'd be interested in the wait list if there is one.
I signed up on the waitlist earlier today.
Here is the link:
Thanks Kenny - Just signed up as well. Trying to decide if I should sign up to race and count on getting transport off the waitlist. What did you do?
Ryancito: DO IT!!!
Ryan - I'm going to sign up for the race later today. Hopefully the bike transport comes through. If not, I'll either rent a bike or go through the hassle and cost of shipping mine out. Kenny
In for the race, waitlist for the bike transport.
