In bike-friendly cities across North America—despite their differences in geography, history, politics, weather, and infrastructure—similar organizations, discussions, and planning and design practices…See More

Midnight Marauders at Billy Goat Tavern

June 19, 2010 at 11pm to June 20, 2010 at 7am
Come out and join the Midnight Marauders for our first summer (OK so we fudged it by a couple days) ride. We will kick off the season by visiting some less-Marauded areas of the city and spreading the summer love. The planned end involves the preparation of some culinary delights over charcoal, so bring some delights to burn. This is a trailer friendly ride. We will be gathering at the Billy Goat, 430 N. Michigan Av. (lower level), at 11pm. Departure at Midnight, or thereabouts.

"I've biked out to Elk Grove before. The roads get chewy as heck and will probably eat skinny road tires. Once you work your way out to the west side, you can take Grand out to Franklin to Green, take York/Elmhurst road out to Higgens,…"
