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

Hi, Melanie M! Um, the West Town Bike Gang is inactive in the physical sense right now, as fellow members, Marco, igz, and David have said, but I believe it exists on a different level, as 'Westtowners', we are unified in our existence spiritually !

As in any group, the individual members decide how 'active' they want, or wish the group to be. Activity may occur in any group here on the CL if a member proposes an event, and other group members respond, then act on it. A group is as active as it's members decide it to be. So as Ruby says, summon the gang, see what happens. Welcome to the West Town Bike Gang !

As the token Northsider, I'll say this group is lame, but I'm not leaving.

We were never successful in making a group ride :(
