Description

ATTENTION! Starting point changed!!!

That would be to the brewery/restaurant Horse Thief Hollow, which will have its grand opening this upcoming Monday. They're "soft opening" today, Wednesday the 6th.

Let's meet at the LaSalle Metra station (Financial Plaza entrance) at 10 a.m. on Sunday, February 10, and ride to the Horse Thief, or take the train at 10:30, if it's raining. Bring cash in case we will have to take the train, as there is no ticket agent on duty at the station on Sundays.

The forecast for Sunday is "rain showers likely," but temps are promised to be in the lower 40s.

Take a look at the suggested route (just over 15 miles one way).

Depending on the weather and amounts of beer consumed, we can either ride back or take the RI Metra do Downtown at Beverly Hills/103rd Street (just a few blocks from the Horse Thief).

Just started raining. Leaving for the LaSalle station in few minutes.

Yeah, looks a bit rainy. Train it is, then . . . unless forecast is exaggerated :)

Sounds like the forecast is kinda nasty. If it was clear I'd ride, but I think I'll sit this one out and drink beer in the dry at home. Besides, I really need to clean my drivetrain something fierce. Hopefully next weekend will be better?

I've changed the starting point to LaSalle Metra!

Not to mention ride TO the station, Jared.

We could still ride the half mile from the station to the brewery, its even uphill I believe.

I will probably have to go to work for a couple of hours early in the morning, but my work is just a couple of blocks from the LaSalle station. I'm totally OK for the train option, if weather is bad.

As for the route, I have no idea what's wrong with Archer. I'm open for suggestions.

I have asked, though, Anne Alt, who lives in Beverly, about that route, and moved it way west per her advise. She didn't say anything about Archer.

Anyway, if we use Metra, Archer becomes rather academic, eh?

Hmm... I'm not liking the idea of a soaking wet 15 mile ride, but seeing as how this IS the Chainlink, we can't possibly do this without bikes being involved for at least part of it. I think if it's completely miserable that morning then maybe we could opt for train for part way? I guess make that call on the fly. Also, is there possibly a better way to get down there? I've heard that riding Archer Av. really, REALLY, sucks.

The weather doesn't look very promising, though, at least, it will not be cold. Bike or train?

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on February 7, 2013 at 7:05pm

Metra option, in case of bad bad bad weather: 10:30 from LaSalle St Station, arriving to Beverly/103rd by 11 a.m.
