We plan on taking the 8:30am train from Chicago that arrives in Crystal Lake at 9:51, though we are picking up the train at other points. I will be picking up the train at Dee Road. Once in Crystal Lake, we will be riding at our usual pace down the Fox River trail to Aurora to ride the BNSF back to Union Station. We are very unlikely to set any speed records.
This ride is not necessarily a beer ride, but keep in mind that Two Brothers is near the end point in Aurora. There is also a place called Emmet's in West Dundee. If the group wants to stop there, who am I to argue?
The trip is about 40 miles. The trains leave Aurora at 4:20 (heh) and 6:20.
Ride report: There was beer, construction, wind and good times. Photographic Evidence:
