Tour of Belmont-Cragin and Hermosa 2014

Lee Diamond replied to notoriousDUG's discussion So do we even have any form of moderation here?

No worries Papa! ;-) Had a great time! ;-)

Hi Lee, that message disappeared when I accepted the friend request. Sounds like perhaps you saw the Schwinn on CL? With the long Shimano brake. That thing worked really well. I'd give up a lot to be able to get more of them.

Great Ride and thanks for the after party at Janiks! ;-) Great stuff! ;-)

Lee, things are good. I hope to make it out this Sat., and may be driving (time constraints on the evening) from Bucktown?WP nbrhd. If anyone needs a ride (with or without their bike) please put him/her/them in touch with me.

I figured that group was a good place for it...

Something about that guy annoys me.

Lee, you set the bar. Your preparedness is perfect and your tours worth paying for.

All of the homes (except 1 or 2) S. Millard between Ogden and 16th have Romanesque pillars on their porches and almost all have extensive carved and/or molded decorations on their greystone fronts. I've seen similar homes here and there in Lawndale and other parts of the South side, but I haven't noticed so many very similar homes in a two block stretch anywhere else on the south side.

Hi, Lee! I didn't even see your wall post till now. Thanks for saying hey. Jerry has been limiting his cycling distances since he was hobbled by chronic tendinitis in his hamstring, and I've been racing this summer, so we haven't had time to get to any of the neighborhood tours. Ironically enough, once the weather gets crappy we'll probably start getting out more on organized rides.
