Wicker Park First Fridays Happy Happy Fun Ride


Wicker Park First Fridays Happy Happy Fun Ride

Now living in Bucktown, I'm planting a group ride nearby. With years of experience producing the magical north side mass on Second Fridays from Senn Park, we can certainly make something beautiful happen in hipsterville.

Anyone wanting an wondrous ride from Wicker Park to somewhere every month, join this group. Route ideas, feedback of any kind, speak up.

Unless otherwise notified or awful weather, ride leaves from Wicker Park Fountain (~1441 N Damen) after 7pm, every First Friday.  Ridecast on

No ride today. Sorry, I'm in the midst of moving.

The gallery openings ride was beautiful.  Thanx so much Andrea!

Hey y'all, effective immediately I'm gonna change this to FIRST Fridays. There's a SouthSide mass gonna startup soon that likes the 3rd Fridays, and I kinda like the feel of 1st better anyway, and minimizes confusion to not overlap, and I'd failed to promote an August ride anyway, so next Wicker Park First Fridays Happy Happy Fun Ride is Friday, September 5th.

(Unless anyone wants to ride tomorrow anyway, I'm game. GOTTA test my new Schwinn CycleNav...)

Friday's special edition WPHHFR was a blast as always.
Now in the archive (note that plot is incomplete): We did the Po Campo anniversary party at Heritage Bicycles General Store, a garden party by Cafe Mustache, games at Logan Arcade, and late chow at Parts and Labor.

I'm at pitchfork on the 18th, so thinking to call July's WP3FHHFR a week early, on July 11th.  Beach is an idea, also free Slurpees day, TourDeFat eve, full moon-ish.

I've posted an event here.

Re: June 20th's Movie in a Park ride

I remember meeting Lee Diamond's tour at Buckingham, and the orchestra, then zoom around Shedd and over 18th St bridge, then the movie, then Eric Lab Rat, then Union Station, and finally dinner and champagne at the burlesque show's pre-afterparty.

For July, I'm thinking we head for the lake.

We ride this tomorrow, Friday March 21st.

From the Wicker Park Fountain, basically 1425 N Damen

Leaving after 7, latecomers use massup.  Weather shaping up OK, ~50F 60%h NW16.  Destination may include the new arcade bar on Fullerton.

Ha! Still only one member.  Regardless, figured I'd mention I'll be out of town on Feb 21 and not leading a ride anywhere.

Anyone wanting a WPCM that day may I suggest you gather and go to the art show opening:

Maybe in March I'd like to ride around and end at the new arcade bar in our hood on Fullerton near Western.

Wow, Friday's ride was amazing.

Here's some video from the end:

The WPCM reboot turned out quite well. A few dozen riders came, though before 7pm I was worried as it was just me and numerous needies in Wicker Park. Low miles, but good sights and camaraderie.

I've created a Facebook presence:

And added the ride to MassUp:
