Senior Cycling and Gourmet Club - Ride to Pilsen

10:30 AM - 2:00 PM to be determined 10 to 14 mph
Ride FAQ (please read)
Last ride to the Stockyards.

This ride will tour Pilsen.

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of each month at the North Avenue Beach House. We decide where to ride and where to have lunch, which is not really gourmet dining. We are usually back in the area by 2PM. The ride is open to all, but the group at this time of day usually consists of retirees.

Group size will vary from 5 to 20. At times, we divide the group to ride at different paces. We have gone to Evanston, Oak Park, Hyde Park and other destinations in the past year. Ride distance may vary from 15 to 30 miles. Some riding is along the lakefront; at other times we will be in the neighborhoods. Mitch Gold originated this group ride several years ago, but is on "injured reserve" this year.

In the event of likely rain, check back to this posting at 9AM the day of the ride to see if the ride is cancelled.
