There's been a ride to the Three Floyds brew pub in Munster, IN, every January since 2006, and the beer is great ("there are few places more exciting from a beer lover’s perspective", says the NY Times), and the food, too, but January weather, ugh! We'll leave the clock tower at 10, pick up South Siders at the 31st Street beach house at 10:45, take a short break at Wolf Lake, have lunch at Three Floyds, and return. Those who are interested may want to stay for the brewery tour at 3. Going, we'll take the Daniel Burnham Centennial Century route, coming back, the traditional winter route. (A quick-and-easy alternative way back: ride just 10 miles to Flossmoor Station and hop the Metra.) This will be a "tour" ride with few stops. We won't necessarily stay together. Faster riders may go ahead, and slower riders may drop back. It's probably better if we all don't all arrive and try to order at the same time, anyway. Bring money, a lock, snacks to have en route, and panniers for beer you can't get in Chicago. Anyone interested is more than welcome to meet us at the brew pub even if they don't care to participate in the bike ride. The inaugural Three Floyds ride, on January 14, 2006, was conceived and organized by Mark Sinclair. He died April 14 of that year after suffering a brain aneurism.
