VIP35″ when checking out.We really need to sell some Continental level shorts and jerseys along with a couple men’s Summit tri suits to close the store.
It will be delivered the first week of September.
Don’t forget that we’re only a couple weeks away from out next Cherry Valley Time Trial on August 26th. We need racers and volunteers. If you volunteer, you race fee is covered as well. It’s a great little tune up to make sure your bike and legs are ready for September races.
We had trouble hitting some minimums for gear, so the store is open a couple more days. This is the ONLY time the store will be open this year, so now is your chance.
Feel free to email me with questions specific to our club gear. I have had every single piece we are selling in my hands and am very familiar with features and male fits. Their sizing guide runs pretty true. If you want the ‘aero or die’ fit for biking, go down a size for tops or tri suits. I’m 6’0″ and fit in the large Summit Tri Suit pretty well. I tried on a medium and liked that fit if I was trying to get zero wrinkles in the sleeves and shoulders and was only biking in it. The large is probably the better choice for also having to swim and run.
If you don’t want the extra speed and sun protection of wearing sleeves, we have a two piece option with a sleeveless top. Please do not size up and wear floppy gear on the bike. You might as well wear a garbage bag and save some money. If I had a dollar for every person I saw wearing a loose fitting top, but riding aero wheels or using an aero helmet, I could pay somebody else to write the newsletter while I’m on vacation.
Seriously, just email me with ANY questions about our club gear.
Rock River Multisport
Ring in the new gear!
All men’s or women’s specific fits
1 piece Summit Sleeved Tri Suit with zipper and pockets. Summit is one of the highest levels offered by Pactimo. If we’re going to make a triathlon speedsuit, we’re going to do it right. This has all the options, including a mesh rear pocket to securely hold anything on the bike or run with some gel pockets added to the leg as well. Full zip front for quick bathroom access or to do a little ventilation on the run.
Sleeveless Ascent Tri Top with zipper and pockets
Ascent Tri shorts (longer legs)
Two levels of both men’s or women’s specific cycling gear.
Ascent is the higher level with a race focused fit, more technical materials and utilize bib shorts. The Continental series focuses on value and a more ‘comfortable’ fit while still retaining high performance. The Continental shorts are not bibs. Both have full zip front jerseys.
I wore the heck out of our Ascent bib shorts from 2016 to mid 2017 and ordered a second pair. I could barely tell the old ones from the new ones except for a tiny amount of fading on a label inside the older shorts. I will be ordering the Ascent kits, but most people seem happy with the Continental kits from the last two seasons.
Team gear for less cash and probably more opportunities for use. These are also popular as mountain bike jerseys.

RRM Time Trials Sunday August 26th
Local Cycling Related EventsClub member Ryan Satterlee made a big list of most of local bike related events for 2018. You should check it out at http://nicyc.com/.
Rock River Multisport is a non-profit club based in the Rock River Region of Northern Illinois. RRM is built by endurance focused athletes of all skill levels.
RRM focuses on creating a community for collaborative training and mentorship and seeks to promote healthy lifestyles through local opportunities for its members to train and race with a supportive group of like-minded individuals.
We pair athletes together for training and racing opportunities and seek sponsors and local partner affiliations to help our athletes make and achieve their athletic goals in a number of endurance sports (swimming, running, cycling, triathlon, x-country skiing, endurance racing, inline skating, etc.).
Most importantly of all, we want to create a fun atmosphere for people who are interested in sharing what it takes to compete in endurance sports and enjoy life.
While predominately a social club, expect to see exciting training and racing events in areas currently missing from the area!
