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.

Tenth Step Liquid Dreams Ride

Ride FAQ (please read)

No, this isn't about continuing to take personal inventory and promptly admitting when we were wrong.

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.

This month, less work and more fun! The ride will end not back at the Clock Tower, but at the Marz Anniversary Liquid Dreams Festival, at 3630 South Iron Street from 2 to 8 pm, which will feature a lineup of their brews, special guest drafts, bad ass chefs from Chicago’s culinary world, and a slew of inspired weirdness including ambient beer zones that will enhance and expand your festival freak out. Admission is free. You must be 21 or over to enter. You may (but don't have to) purchase in advance packages of tokens for beer, food, and other treats and festival merchandise.

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, 44 if you ride to 93rd and take the Metra or to 100th and take the J14, 49 if you ride to 71st and take the J14, 64 if you ride all the way. 16-19 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 the day is short, 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.

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.
