Information

Chicagoland Beer Exploration Society

Every member of the Society (CBES) should aspire to have a beer at every brewery or brewpub located in a day or two bicycle ride distance from Chicago (and, of course, within the city limits).

Naturally, preferable way of getting to is by bike, as for riding back . . . whatever is available, train, bus, horse and buggy, depending on amount of beverages consumed at the destination.

Routes on Ride with GPS, here.

On Facebook, here.

On Twitter, here.

Lists of breweries and brewpubs (and other beer things): on Facebook, and on Twitter.

Up-to-date map (with a list, postal- and web-addresses and phone numbers, where available). Three hundred and sixty (360!) breweries so far.

15.27 average overall translates to around 17-18 mph while holding a steady speed - you need to account for slowing down/speeding up for intersections, slowing down when we didn't know where we were going etc.   When I put a minimum speed on my rides, I mean "the speed we will go when we get up to speed".

The app only counts moving, it pauses when I stop.

Ok so maybe not hauling as much as I remember but we did get a flat on the 3rd leg so not sure if that factors into your average speed. 

That was one of my favorite rides from last year!

Carlyle Pigs, June 15th, 2014:

First leg (Harvard to Pig Minds)—15.27 mph average.

Second leg (Pig Minds to Carlyle)—13.10.

Third leg (Carlyle to Harvard)—14.70.

I was slowing you down on that last leg ;)

Do you have that for Carlyle Pigs ride? We were hauling a$$ that day! 

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on April 11, 2014 at 4:43pm

Now it is confirmed by numbers:

The average speed for all of the last year's CBES rides I went and have data for was 13.3 mph.

If count only the rides since I started posting the required minimum speed, the average was 14.3 mph.

Welcome, Greg! Wisdom and advice based on experience are always appreciated ;)

Just joined, but, I've ridden my bike to, and enjoyed beer at, brewpubs that don't be there no more.

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on April 10, 2014 at 10:51pm

Good. I didn't ride to Temperance, either. Carol and me went there in the dead of winter with the help of CTA.
