Vondo might attend Martin Hazard's event

Midnight Marauders at The Billy Goat Tavern

September 21, 2013 from 11:30pm to 11:45pm
That time of the month is once again upon us. This Saturday will be the September Midnight Marauders ride. This month we will be doing something a bit different. Our newest Council member Heather proposed a ride to the Stock Yards on the south side. She didn’t know that this was a ride that had been suggested many years ago, discussed repeatedly, and just never executed. So after almost 10 years of festering, the ride will happen tomorrow. This will not be trailer friendly, and sound systems…See More

Hey Vando, party tonight?

I plan on starting cyclo-tour next Monday.  Give me a call on Saturday when you can and let me know your plans so I can plan accordingly.  I may try to go for a road ride in the AM up to Highland Park if you're interested too...

1pm Saturday or Sunday?  I think I'm busy Saturday, but its weather-dependant.  I'll be home after 4:30 tonight and have nothing going on,  I can ride down to meet up someplace too...

Hey Vando.  I never heard from you last weekend, but figured you were out enjoying the glorious weather.  I'll be around this weekend for the most part.  Any chance you will be up on the North-side at some point?

Sounds good.  I should be around.  Give me a ring...

Sweet!  Whereabouts are you in the city?  I live near Addison and Western, but my evenings are pretty well open.  Actually doing a ride on Sunday with some other chainlinkers if you're interested, hitting up Two Brothers and Lunar Brewing on 65 mile ride...  Leaving logan square at 8:30AM.   773-551-6655 is my cell.
