Description

Hard to believe almost a year (and beer under the bridge) passed since the ride to the Crown Brewing—my first attempt of organizing an event with more than three people participating.

It was fun. Let's do it again!

Meet at the Queen's Landing (not Buckingham Fountain!) at 8:30 in the morning and depart no later than 8:51.

Ride to the Crown Brewing (40 miles). Re-hydrate and re-fuel there, then ride to Flossmoor Station (~24 miles) and take the train back to Chicago (after some additional re-hydration at the Station, of course).

Trails: Lakefront, Burnham Greenway, Erie Lackawanna.

Overall distance: ~64 miles.

Minimum average speed: 10 mph.

 

Chicago to Crown Point

Crown Point to Flossmoor

 

The usual: water, snacks, spare tubes, sunscreen, etc.

Weather.

More details to follow, if needed.

I was joking, but if you bring something you like to share, it would be nice. And, of course, you know where all the good places in La Grande Vitesse, right? ;)

Any requests?  We're staying in Grand Rapids...

Sehr gut, Jared! Bring some back ;)

I'll be exploring beer in Michigan.

You never slow us down, Yvonne!

haha...now I see what Alex was talking about. I probably won't be there to slow you down. We should do a trip to Botanical sometime...before it gets too cold.

That, Joe, will depend on the presence (or otherwise) of certain ladies ;)

(And it's a minimum average!)
