Slices of Heaven by Craig Gray

We will tour most of the 43 large sculptures scattered around the north side.  I have a printed brochure which gives the location, names and artists' names.   We'll stop for lunch around the middle of the 25 mile tour.  Please bring a lock and money if you plan to join us.  At this time the weather prediction is chilly but not much chance of rain.  If in doubt, phone Kathy at 773 248 5499 before coming over.

I have invited some of the artists to join us.

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but CCC riders are so delightful, so let it snow let it snow let it snow.

Members, guests, friends and the curious are all invited to the CCC Annual Holiday PotLuck party.

This is a chance to visit with fellow members, to talk bikes, bike trips, bike gear, food, beer, crazy things and art.

We welcome you all to come and meet and mingle. Please bring a food dish to share. This event is in a private home and is easily accessible via the Chicago, Grand, Western or Damen bus. Bike parking in the rear and street parking usually within a block.

Ride FAQ (please read)

No, this isn't about trying, after having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, to carry any message to alcoholics, or to practice any principles in all our affairs.

It's about riding to Three Floyds and boosting our cognitive function every month this year! Now there's a consistent schedule -- the 4th Saturday of every month -- others have opportunities to lead (I can't make it every time), and you can qualify for the F-12 Award.

The ride takes the lakefront trail south from the Clock Tower. You can join up anywhere along the trail. Just let the group know where so they can look for you.

45 miles total if you ride to Flossmoor Station and take the Metra, 50 if you ride to 93rd and take the Metra or to 100th and take the J14, 55 if you ride to 71st and take the J14, 70 if you ride all the way. 14-17 mph. I like to get there before they open at 11:00 (it's still the fourth-best brewery in the world, so sometimes there's a line). Bring money, government-issued ID, a lock, lights since it's getting dark early, water and snacks to have en route, and panniers for beer you can't get in Chicago.

Online resources: Google map, cue sheet, conversation about this ride, Metra Electric train schedules, Jeffrey Jump (J14) bus schedule, Bikes on the Metra, Bikes on the Bus, and, to save a minute at the start, the nifty online CCC waiver.
