This year, the North American Cycle Courier Championships will be held in the land of Grain Belt, Pizza Luce, and hidden swimming holes: Minneapolis. Here in Chicago, our very own Cuttin Crew will be helping you gear up for the showdown of the century with a hot weekend of racing and a supported group ride to glory across the Midwest.
Details, locations, et cetera are still spotty so make sure you check in on the Facebook event often to keep updated!

Begin the journey to the NACCC….
We will be providing you with vehicle support to carry all your belongings each day until we make it to MPLS, as well as to assist you if for any reason you can’t get to camp (bike mechanicals, injury, etc). There will be campsites provided, but you are responsible for your camping gear (sleeping bag, tent, etc).
Each rider will receive a route map for the day and details about the campsites. We will try and provide some food along the way, but bring money for groceries to bring back to camp. Part of our route scouting involves making sure there are places to get food along the way.
There is NO REGISTRATION FEE FOR THE RIDE. However, if you plan on doing the ride PLEASE RSVP to nico@fourstarcourier re: Group Ride so we know how many people we will be looking to accommodate.
Stay tuned over the next couple weeks as we will be posting the route as well as things like grocery stores, restaurants along the way, and cool Midwest sights to see.
