Well I know some of us are aware what this months Marauders ride is, but for those that don’t, it’s the Subterranean. This is a tour of Chicago’s underground labyrinth of service roads and oddities, known only to city workers and messengers. But the Marauders know them better than both.

This has always been our most challenging ride of the year for several reasons. First the route. I cannot go into detail on this. Second the number, and make up of participants. This is not the ride for you to bring a bunch of friends that have never done a Marauders ride. It is difficult enough without a bunch of newbies, so don’t detract from everyone’s experience by bringing them.

As for the details, this will not be a trailer friendly ride. The use of sound systems will be very limited. There will be at least one section where you will have to carry your bike, over obstacles, for at least 50 yards. OK maybe 30, but you get the idea.

The gist of it - this is only a ride for at least moderately experienced cyclists.

I went to click "like" on the event header, unbeknownst to me to would prepare a wall post for Facebook but I just closed the window. I definitely don't want to involve Facebook in this ride. I triple checked my wall, it did not post. Sorry for any confusion if I caused any, but just to be clear I did not and had/have no intention to involve any kind of social media.
