The Crew







Tuxedo Thunder

Tuxedo Thunder Cycling is a USA Cycling-licensed bike team based in Chicago, IL competing in all major racing disciplines. Packed with bikes and streaked with grease, our team limo travels to races all over the Midwest, collecting corsages and high-fives for eleven months out of every year. We race with an independent spirit borne of sweat, determination, and the desire to turn every race into a black tie event. These tuxedos aren’t rentals; they’re for real. BOW TIE OR DIE
