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). Five hundred thirty (530!) so far.

had a blast at the north shore century. which i somehow managed to finish with an average of 17.5 despite an Egg McMuffin® at the 2nd rest stop, a burger at the 3rd, a hot dog at the 4th, and pizza at the 5th.

actually it's no mystery, the key was getting pulled along by the fast packs roving the course. at one point i was drafting a guy, he was doing maybe 20, a pack came along, we went along with them, they were doing like 25, and then we hit a downhill. max speed: 31.1.

Comment by Serge Lubomudrov on September 10, 2017 at 9:31pm

Yeah, it would be rather difficult to ride back north from the north ;)

Comment by bobweiser on September 10, 2017 at 9:25pm

i was south today and thought about proposing riding back north together, i'm glad i didn't!
