THE monthly north side gathering of cyclists. Winds a dozen miles-ish, ending with food+drink. Well-attended. Bring friends, tunes, bells, costumes, cameras. Meet under Young Lincoln Statue at Ridge and Thorndale.  Not just for Northsiders, see it as a second big monthly mass, sometimes topping 100 riders.

Route is now posted on

We've planned a 15 mile round trip to American Science and Surplus to give everyone a last chance to find amazingly weird and interesting gifts, and taking streets chosen to maximize holiday decorations exposure.

Rough route as follows:
Lincoln Statue, 5959 N Ridge
S on Ravenswood
W on Berwyn
W on Argyle
NW on Elston
American Science and Surplus, 5316 N Milwaukee

Dinner after somewhere maybe, but no firm plan; we'll talk.

ASS is open only until 9pm (holiday hours), so we MUST launch by 7pm.  Latecomers you should know how it works by now.

Detailed map on Google.

Weather forecasts clear 40F (35WCI) 8SE at 7pm, 39F (33WCI) 9SE at 11pm.
Tell yer friends!!!

Is there a map of this Friday's ride?

Jera-n-I have a super-fun plan for the December ride!
We even pre-rode it already 'cause we're cool like dat.

Maybe 18 miles round-trip, likely to include touring holiday decoration intensive neighborhoods, an amazing nerdy store, liquor stop, and food.  And I've got gifts for some regulars.

Tell yer friends!
