Description

Have you tried F8 brewskies? If not, here's your chance to do that, right at the source.

It's a long (over 50 miles form the Buckingham Fountain) ride, so we must start early. We can pick up those who live south of Downtown on the way, so there's no need for them to go to the Fountain.

Here are Google-generated directions to the brewery.

Trails: Lakfront; Burnham Greenway; Erie Lackawanna; Oak Savannah.

After enjoying Figure Eight's beverages, we can ride west to Flossmoor (approx. 40 miles) and relax a bit over a pint before boarding Metra train to Chicago.

F8 crew will be expecting us and will show us the brewery.

Great ride indeed. Thanks for organizing this, Serge. 113 miles for me according to Google Maps.

Sorry I lost you guys on the way back from Millenium Station. I took the super secret short-cut through the Lakeshore East development.

Ride was great. Beautiful, if cold, weather, nice long, straight and paved trails. We had to ford a flooded road a couple of times, and ride rather busy streets a bit on our way back, but, otherwise, success (at least, in my biased opinion).

Thanks, Mattheis, Frank and Spenser!

Your all a lot heartier than me.  Hope the trails aren't under water.

Oh, cool. Thanks, Frank!

Still, we'll be leaving at 7, or few minutes later.

the 4/20 bridge lift has been canceled. And they were scheduled to start at 8 am anyhow.
