Dress in your finest tweedy gear (or at least Sunday best), strap a picnic basket on your steed, and let's ride! This promises to be a delightful spring ride, and if you're not familiar with this part of the city, you'll be quite chuffed at the charming sights along the way.
Everyone who arrives in appropriate garb, receives a commemorative hub shiner or basket medal, handmade from leather. Spandex queens and hipster bores shall have none.
We will meet at a dandy English establishment - the Red Lion - for some pastys and chips. It's BYOB, so be sure to have your picnic basket packed for the journey. (there is a libation vendor at Rockwell and Lawrence, and a green grocer -Harvestime- one block west of there) Then at 2 o'clock sharp, we shall ride leisurely through urban countryside, over hill and dale, to a delightful place where we shall nosh and drink from our baskets! Along the way, shall be more parks, Chief O'Neills, a stroll on a riverside boardwalk, and then finally rolling into the Anglo-friendly Globe (with whomever managed to get out of O'Neills). Those who need to return to the starting point, but are too exhausted, may shuttle their steeds on the Lincoln bus.
Here's a map of the general route.
