OK, not everyone loves Three Floyds. Different spokes for different folks! This year, you have the option of going to Flossmoor Station instead. (It remains an option to go to Flossmoor Station in addition.)
We depart Daley Plaza at 9:00 AM and collect riders at Promontory Point at 9:45 AM. We stay together (more or less) down to I-80, then split up into Three Floyds and Flossmoor Station groups. The goal of the Three Floyds group will be to get to Three Floyds by noon, when they open, and not have to wait outside.
Neither snow nor rain nor sleet nor gloom of night stays these couriers (and other riders) from the swift completion of their appointed rounds. Depending on the weather, however, returning from our rounds via Metra from Flossmoor Station is sometimes a very attractive option. Total distance: Three Floyds round trip: 60 miles, Three Floyds and Flossmoor Station one-way 40 miles, Flossmoor Station one-way 35 miles. Here’s a link to the routes (there may be adjustments if it snows).
We ask that you RSVP if attending.
The fine print: There is no support vehicle. You are responsible for yourself. The pace is 12-16 mph with a short break at Wolf Lake. Mid January weather may be extreme. Be prepared for cold as well as flats/mechanical problems.
Pump, tube, tools
Extra layers of clothing (more than you expect to use)
The inaugural Three Floyds ride was conceived and organized by Mark Sinclair and took place on January 14, 2006. As many of you know, Mark died on April 14 of that year, at age 34, a few days after suffering a brain aneurysm. It was Mark’s hope that it would become an annual event.
