Despite the postponement of the official ride, a small group showed up and rode anyway. Here we all are before riding off to Winnemac Park.

Per Everyblock:

Hey Everyone - UPDATE! - the Alderman's office has cancelled tomorrow's official ride due to inclement weather, so Alderman Pawar and his staff will not be there, nor the Bicycle Ambassadors. But, those of us on the organizing committee will still be at the Gazebo at 10 and will ride if folks come. We're looking forward to it!

The official 47th Ward Family Ride will be postponed to a later date - we'll let you know.

Also, Kidical Mass is starting to hold monthly rides at 10am departing from the Gazebo on the third Saturday of every month, so you are all always welcome to join that one!

It will be chilly and 70% chance of rain tomorrow, so please dress appropriately!

Alderman's weekly email that just went out says it is postponed.
