2012 GEAR GUIDE: CHICAGO VELO CAMPUS BAG


I love backpacks and whenever I see one I’m always like “ooh I need that” but then I’m like “oh nevermind” when I realize I already got a bunch of backpacks. But here’s one that’s so cool, I just have to get it no matter what.

The Chicago Velo Campus Race Day Backpack is designed for the racer on the go and it’s loaded with many awesome features. Of course there’s the padded mesh back, a main compartment for clean clothes, a padded laptop sleeve (which can also hold a track tote) and little pockets for personal stuff like keys and cards. On top of that, there are lots of original features designed to organize your race day including an insulated water bottle compartment with spaces for 4 bottles, expandable and ventilated compartments for shoes and a large expandable pocket to fit a helmet (aero or regular). There’s even a detachable “changing mat” integrated into the backpack to help keep your shoes and socks clean.

The track version comes with a track tote to organize all your chainrings, cogs and tools all for $180. The road version is just the backpack and that goes for $150. The best part is that all proceeds go directly to developing the Chicago Velo Campus — and we all want to see that dream become a reality.

CHICAGO VELOCAMPUS: EXPLORING ORIGINS


This is the first chapter in the life of a velodrome: “a preview of a soon to be released documentary exploring the construction, community, and usage of the Chicago Velo Campus”.

I hope there are many more chapters to come.

Check It Out: Chicago Velo Campus

This could be really awesome. Although, it’s only in the “wouldn’t-it-be-cool-if” planning stages right now, the Chicago Velo Campus is a concept for a world-class cycling and sports facility which would include:

- State-of-the-art indoor 250m velodrome track
- Outdoor and indoor BMX tracks
- Outdoor and indoor mountain bike tracks
- Outdoor cyclocross track
- Triathlon training center
- Wind tunnel facility
- Olympic-size swimming pool
- Running track
- Fitness center
- Coaching and educational facility
- Olympic development program
- Youth, beginner, elite and masters programs
- Community center
- Physical therapy and sports medicine center
- Sports retail
- Cycling museum
- Restaurant and cafe
- Health and juice bar
- Commuter hub

Sounds like a cyclist’s utopia. How can you help this project come to life? Buy one of those über-cool Casco Warp helmets and fifty bucks from each sale goes to the CVC. Check out more info here.
