There's been a ride to the Three Floyds brew pub in Munster, IN, every January since 2006, and the beer is great ("there are few places more exciting from a beer lover's perspective", says the NY Times), and the food, too, but January weather, ugh!

y a j will co-lead. We'll leave the clock tower at 9, pick up South Siders at the 31st Street beach house at 9:45, take a short break at Wolf Lake, have lunch at Three Floyds, and return. Going, we'll take the Daniel Burnham Centennial Century route, coming back, the traditional winter route. (An easier way back for those who don't drink responsibly: ride just 10 miles to Flossmoor Station and hop the Metra.)

This will be a joint ride with the Chicago Cycling Club. It'll be 70 miles at 16-20 mph. We won't make many stops. We may not stay together. Faster riders may go ahead, and slower riders may drop back. It's probably better if we all don't all arrive and try to order at the same time, anyway. Those who get there before they open at noon are less likely to have to wait. Bring money, a lock, snacks to have en route, and panniers for beer you can't get in Chicago.

Anyone interested is more than welcome to meet us at the brew pub even if they don't care to participate in the bike ride. The inaugural Three Floyds ride, on January 14, 2006, was conceived and organized by Mark Sinclair. He died April 14 of that year after suffering a brain aneurism.
