All requests to rent one of our four bike boxes should be directed to Nick Preys (message him using the "Send Message" button). If the date is available, your reservation will be held pending receipt of the reservation form/waiver and deposit check of $25 made out to “Chicago Tri Club”. You will not be able to pick up the bike box until you turn in a waiver and deposit. Please ensure you take into account shipping times when you reserve your dates. Your deposit check will be voided and shredded when you return the box on time.
If you turn the box in late you may be impacting someone else’s reservation and you will be charged a late fee and may lose bike box privileges. Late fees: up to 2 days – $25, 2 to 5 days $50, over 5 days $75 and loss of bike box privilege.
The bike boxes are held at Get A Grip (621 W Fulton). You can pick up and drop off only during their normal store hours. GAG will offer to pack your bike for an additional fee and ship anywhere at standard UPS shipping rates. Contact GAG if you are interested in this option. The bike boxes are all the same or similar so please take the box that GAG has ready for you. CTC reserves the right to revoke the privilege from members who abuse the policy.
Please only reserve the box for the times you need it! During the busy season (summer and early November), the maximum time you can keep a box is two weeks.
