Tour of Bridgeport and Armour Square at McGuane Park

July 6, 2013 from 11am to 4pm
The history of the Bridgeport and Armour Square area is as old as Chicago itself. Native Americans used the area as a portage, particularly when the Chicago River was at its deepest, and most spread out.

About me:
My dream is cyclotouring. Especially to go around the world. This summer I would like to go to Illinois State Beach Park again. It would be fun with a few other people.

Green is my favorite color and I happily own my dream bike, a green Heron Wayfarer touring bike. I think this year I'll finally be able to get a generator hub and lights as well as new dimpled Honjo fenders. :)

That's a little about me, bicycle wise.

I have a plot at the garden at Lawrence and Western. I didn't know there were individual plots at Waters- that's such a cool space over there.

Don't know what the garden is along Ravenswood but I will definitely check that out! Further north along Ravenswood there are the west Andersonville gardens but those are mostly flowers and such. Would be fun to have a bike tour of northside community gardens next spring!

sorry,,, : ) As you must know, we Garths get used to being the only ones "in the room". And it often feels bizarre when we meet other Garths. One time I received a spam email which I noticed was also sent to about a hundred other Garths that the spam robots collected. Perhaps we should have our own website? "Club Garth" ?

Now, I see your nick name is the Square Wheelman which reminds me that there is a folk tale about a farmer named Garth, whose field is not square, but triangular. Something tells me that would be easier to deal with than a square wheel!

Happy Wheeling, look forward to running into you in person. Sincerely, Garth (the other one)

Well, I'll be damned; I though I was the only garth on Chainlink!
