Ride FAQ (please read)

No, this isn't about making direct amends to the people we've harmed whenever doing so is possible and won't injure them or others.

It's about riding to Three Floyds and boosting our cognitive function every month this year! There's a somewhat consistent schedule -- usually the 4th Saturday of the month -- and you can qualify for the F-12 Award.

September is National Century Month, so this step is a century -- if you ride a little extra before or after. 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.

35 miles to Three Floyds + 10 miles to Flossmoor Station = 45 miles. Take the Metra Electric home or ride another 25 miles to Imperial Oak's Oak-toberfest = 70 miles. Ride another 5 miles to Brookfield = 75 miles and take the BNSF home or another 25 miles to Revolution's Oktoberfest, the Beer Temple, and back to the clock tower = 95 miles. 15-18 mph. I like to get to Three Floyds before they open at 11:00 (they're still one of the top 100 brewers in the world, and the food, like the beer, is unapologetically in your face with flavor, so sometimes there's a line). Bring money, government-issued ID, a lock, lights since we'll be out late, 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, BNSF train schedule, Bikes on the Metra, and, to save a minute at the start, the nifty online CCC waiver.

PS: I give these rides these names because I find them humorous in an ironic way. It's not my intent to make light of addictions, efforts to recover from addictions, or 12-step peer support groups like AA. If you're trying to drink in moderation, we'll support you. If you're trying to abstain, you may want to give this ride a pass.

10:30 AM - 2:00 PM to be determined 12 to 15 mph
Ride FAQ (please read)

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 last 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.
