I'm definitely munching on some Elk jerky from the Cheese Castle right now and it's damn delicious! Hope your cheese and purchases were just as good

3F was a tough ride for me a few weeks ago. I love the idea of a ladies century. Are you doing Tour de Shore in June? I just registered. I'm going the hotel/motel route vs. the tent. I can't wait.

Hey Ash, I think Julie plans the Bar Night.  I have yet to hear anything about it.  Whenever it is, see you there.

Is there a particular day of the month that Critical Lass has their ride?

Thanks!

It was LOVELY(!) dining and chatting. I'm looking forward to seeing you both soon. You should join my upcoming Slowterium through Humboldt and west Logan on June 4th.  That or at the MBAC. Cheers! Sarah

Hi Ash
I'm not sure if you were able to make it out to polo last week but we would love to have you out. We play on Wednesdays at 6pm and Sundays at 2pm at the Garfield Park tennis courts. There is also a Chicago Bike Polo group and homepage www.chicagohardcourt.org
Hope to see you soon
