Meet the Team

Adam

As the Swiss Army knife of KLiCK Cycling, Adam does it all when it comes to sports. Although we met him on the velodrome, Adam also tosses himself into road and cyclocross races quite frequently. When he’s not on the bike, he plays golf and basketball, goes running (the team isn’t sure how we feel about this one), and boxes! He wants more of us to join him at cyclocross races in 2019, which we might heavily consider if he agrees to share his post-ride Culver’s meal.

Andy

Andy is our gentle giant. Despite his muscular build and a face full of beard, Andy is easily the jolliest of us all. He takes pride in his title of Chief Content Officer by orchestrating our beautiful team headshots, keeping our hashtag game strong, and taking GoPro photos and videos of our rides. We especially love him for his colorful socks and jerseys, which help keep the whole group looking spiffy. Speaking of jerseys, did you know his wife designed our current jersey?! When not on two wheels, Andy can be found working at his film and video production company, Thunderlab, which is a fabulous sponsor of KLiCK Cycling!

Carlos

One day Carlos showed up on a ride, and he hasn’t left us since. Except for that time when he moved to Ohio, but we still love him regardless. As one of our earliest members, Carlos ranks as our Chief Knowledge Officer. Whether it be the who’s who of famed riders in Philadelphia, the latest cycling tech, or anything about cellos, Carlos knows it all. He’s also what makes us a nationwide team! In his spare time, we can find Carlos playing the cello or posting home videos of his cats on Instagram.

Conrad

The man who makes cycling look as easy as cutting through butter with a hot knife. Our pocket rocket. With his genetic gift of cycling strength, Conrad is the powerhouse that keeps our team moving through the dense headwinds of Chicago. He’s known for riding 100 miles solo on a whim, or dropping us all at Baha’i without ever standing out of saddle. Yet, we still love him for his never ending smile, humbleness, and lovable personality. If you lose sight of him on the road, be sure to say hello at our famous post-ride beer gathering!

Greg

With his trusty Alchemy and stealthy ENVE wheels, Greg is the smiling face that every team needs! Whether it be ensuring that stragglers know the route or routinely bringing new faces to the ride, Greg is the gatekeeper to our ever-welcoming community. In his free time, he enjoys taking beautiful trips to España and working in the financial industry, though he insists “I’m not a banker.” Beware, though, of his wily sneak attacks and strong pulls on Greenbay Road!

Jake

Our fearless leader. Our Chief Bicycle Officer. Whether it be working behind the scenes, dominating on the track, or anything else in between, Jake does it all. He is truly a human embodiment of our team’s core mission to support a community of tight knit cyclists and is the glue that keeps us together. When he’s not outdoors with us, you can probably find Jake at home on his watt bike or posting photos to the team’s Instagram.

James F.

The only thing you need to know about the other James on our team, James F, is that the chainring on his bike is larger than most dinner plates. James’ cycling passion started as a fixie hipster who rode year-round to work, but has since been revised to only riding indoors or in a giant oval. Although he exclusively rides the track, we’re happy to have managed to get him on the road a couple of times in 2018. In his spare time, James can be found brainstorming how his 3 month old baby will become the next great American cyclist and “reading research for fun.”

James R.

Perhaps one of KLiCK Cycling’s greatest crowning achievements is our ability to transform runners and triathletes into full fledged cyclists. Over three years, that is what we’ve done with James. He came to us as a marathon runner and triathlete, but today stands as of our one of our most well-rounded cyclists. His cycling highlights include: crashing to claim Strava KOMs, winning his first-ever races on the velodrome, and bike-touring around Lake Michigan. With a history of year over year progression, we’re excited to see where the bike leads James next. Just hopefully not back to triathlons.

John

Do you love data, power meters, and cadence style? Do you need someone to report a false Strava KOM? If so, then you’ll love John! After being dropped on the Wednesday Night Ride in 2015, John has now become one of the strongest riders of KLiCK Cycling. With his white Bontrager helmet and “Chatty Cathy” personality, he’s a hard one to miss. In his free time, he enjoys: spin classes, painting his house, and telling Luke how the group must stop for a Cinnayum at ArrivaDolce before going any further.

Lance

Lance is a fan-favorite among our team. Like many of us, his face is always full of smiles and has a heart of gold. But there’s much more to him than that. With a standing tally of SEVEN bicycles, Lance is a relative novice to weekend riding, but has rapidly achieved weekend warrior status. His “never give up” attitude encourages us to challenge ourselves and push each other to new heights. Needless to say, we’re very excited to see what Lance has up his sleeve for 2019!

Libby

When Libby joined us on a group ride last summer, we were thrilled to add a woman to our weekend pace line. It wasn't long after that first ride when she agreed to join the team - becoming our first female member! In 2019, we're looking forward to seeing her in a few crits and watching her represent us in the Chicago cyclocross series. When Libby's not riding, she’s crushing the Mom game of her 2 boys (12 & 9) and always on the hunt for the seasons best NE Style IPA.

Luke

Luke is an enigma that we struggle to explain. When we first met him, he was the strong skinny young guy. He once held the Baha’i KOM, rode 60+ miles with ease, and pulled the group for 20 miles at a time. Nowadays, Luke’s fitness fluctuates between “that’s what you get for not riding” and “how is he this strong with such little riding?!”. He famously organizes rides and then doesn’t show up. We still love him, though, for the entertainment and 20-something year old insights that he brings to the group. Come join us sometime, and perhaps you’ll experience the enigma.

Nate

Nate is the newest face to KLiCK Cycling in 2019. He hurled his way onto the team by showing up to a ride and then vomiting at the coffee shop - something that Luke is also famous for this. We quickly realized that he represented the all-in, fun loving intensity of our weekend rides and that he was a needed addition. Nate defines himself first and foremost as a Masshole, which we suggest you Google only at your own will. He started riding bikes to get to his Segway tour guide job and later pulled on spandex at the behest of his brother. When he’s not in spandex, Nate fills his time with burning his eyeballs with lasers, and doing freelance video work alongside Andy.

Rene

Rene is the hard-man of KLiCK Cycling. Between routinely sacrificing himself for teammates at races and riding in even the most grizzly conditions, Rene is the epitome of Velominati’s Rule #5. He’s also the heart and soul of the Wednesday Night Ride. Not only does he organize and keep the ride in check, but he can often be seen single-handedly guiding stragglers back home. If he’s not riding, then Rene can be seen fixing bicycles at Turin Bicycle, the title sponsor of KLiCK Cycling, or showing off his dance moves at various clubs.

Vojta

Everyone should have a citizen from the Czech Republic in their life, and we’re overjoyed to have Vojta as part of ours! His smiling face never fails to warm our group, even on the coldest of Chicago’s rideable days. We’re fairly certain that Vojta and Luke are in competition with each other to be the skinniest and tallest member of the team, so be sure to come cast your vote on one of the group rides! In his spare time, Vojta can be found taking baby-prep classes or enjoying a cold pint of Czech Pilsner.
