Lakefront Vintage Steel Ride at Lakefront

November 2, 2013 from 10am to 4pm
If any vintage road bike enthusiasts feel like braving the cold and grey weather, a group of us will be taking a social pedal along the length of the Chicago lakefront path tomorrow, followed by a burger and beer at Moody's Pub (in Edgewater ).  We'll start at the top of the path, ride to about 67th St, and then ride back north to Moody's.  Folks can ride the full ride, or turn back at any point they see fit.  We'll likely have a wide variety of speeds (most riding in 16-18 mph range), fitness…See More

Bob replied to Skip Montanaro 12mi's discussion "Protected" bike lane on Church Street in Evanston
"They're doing the same thing in the city, with poles to separate.  Have they thought about how they're going to plow the snow? Personally, I think that separated bike lanes are a bad idea, and simply create a two-tiered road system…"

Vintage Lakefront Ride at Foster Beach House

October 20, 2012 from 10am to 1pm
Anyone up for a vintage lightweight lake front ride?  We've done a few of these in the past, and it's been a great way for vintage road bike enthusiasts to ogle some nice bikes and take a social ride on the lake front.  Folks can ride to the bottom of the LFP and back (or shorter distance, if desired) and then meet up at Moody's Pub for a burger and a beer. All types of bikes are welcome, but an appreciation of vintage racing bikes is a plus.  Ride at your own speed (and risk!), and choose your…See More
