I think it's worth identifying preferred re-filling stations on the west side. What's your favorite nook, cranny, or bartender? I'm drunk-riding distance home from the Clipper, so that's my default. Continue

Hey Gang! Please stop by our bike shop at 2030 W. Hubbard. As you probably know, Hubbard is a great commute route. Hope to see you soon!

Yo, West Town Bike Gang! Let's ('try to') have a special meet-up before the Tour de Fat parade Saturday. We could ride together in the parade as a 'gang' and show our colors and protect our 'hood. (Sorry, just stoopid gang talk) Meet up 10:30-11am at the Palmer Square water fountain(north of kids play area). I'll 'try' to have a sign, "Beware, West Town Bike Gang Hangs Out Here!" Others could wear signs and 'gang costumes' during the parade, Beware! 'WestTown Bike Gang'. Let's get dis' party started! Just Sayin'! Yo, Let's Roll! See Ya! . . .

Haven't heard back from anyone else yet, and there's also a rat bike ride tonight which I know a few folks are going to. So I'm going to suggest Thursday and if a couple of you materialize for Thursday let's do it. Either we can shoot up the channel trail, Head out west or any other place your little hearts desire.

I'm shooting for after sundown: between 8:30 and 9 PM start time, and go for an hour-ish max so the working folks can still get up in the morning.

I'm thinkin' Wednesday night. Meet up around the northside of Humboldt Park. Head somewhere North/South or West? Who's in?
