New Year's Eve Ride at Pioneer Court (421 N Michigan Ave)

December 31, 2013 at 9:30pm to January 1, 2014 at 12:30am
This is the best party on wheels. We will be riding around the city and some neighborhoods, as we say goodbye to 2013 and hello to 2014. The meet up will be in Pioneer Court, next to Tribune tower where the WGN-AM radio station is located. Champagne may be sipped after the ride to ring in the new year, but not before or during the ride. We want no intoxicated cyclists to deal with. And food/champagne will be provided by whoever decides to provide it. Hope to see you there.See More
