Chicago Lakefront Ride, Tuesday, Aug. 1st at 10:15
August 1, 2017
10:15 am

I hope that some of you can join me for a ride along Chicago's lakefront on Tuesday, August 1st. Approx. 20-24 miles, easy pace, no one left behind. (Rain date of Wednesday, Aug. 9th).

Let's meet at 10:00 (for a 10:15 start) at Wilson Avenue (4600 north) near the Lakefront Trail. There is free parking along Wilson Avenue...east of lake Shore Drive and east of the bike trail.

There are various ways to get to this location. Some might want to #90 to Irving Park Road. Then east (left turn) to Sheridan Road, north (left turn) to Wilson and east (right turn) to the lakefront. If you are familiar with the city, there are many other options for getting there. It will probably take about an hour from the Schaumburg area. I plan to be there early, so you can spot me along the bike trail at Wilson Avenue. My cell phone is 224-676-8027.

Our plan is to begin riding at 10:15, heading south about 10-12 miles. We'll turn around there and have a couple of lunch options. One is at Oak Street Beech, another is closer to our cars at the Clock Tower restaurant at Irving Park, overlooking Waveland Golf Course and the Lake. (Our bikes will be very safe and visible to us if we eat at the Clock Tower, but if we eat at Oak Street Beach, we'll need locks.) If you don't want to stop for lunch, it is a short ride from Irving Park to the cars at Wilson Avenue. I haven't timed this ride, but depending on how much sightseeing we do, we expect to be back to Wilson Avenue by 2:00-2:30.

If you would like to "car pool," there may be opportunities to do that. I'd be happy to coordinate, based on responses I have from folks.

There are park district restrooms just a mile or so into our ride, then more along the way. None right at the starting point.
