Des Plaines River Trail Ride / Free Concert - Beatles Music!

You've got a ticket to ride! Come enjoy the music of The Cavern Beat, bringing the Beatles to life with the authentic look and sound of the original Fab Four!

Let's jump on our bikes and head north on the Des Plaines River Trail to Independence Grove to take in this FREE concert! The concert will be held in the Millennia Plaza ampitheater and the Cafe at the Grove will be open for your drinking and dining pleasure, should you so desire. The concert begins at 7:30 pm.

On Monday evening, I will email my cell phone number to all those who have RSVPed "Yes" by that time - if you are not present AND have not contacted me by ride time, I will assume you are not coming. As always, if you RSVP "Yes" but your plans change, please kindly update your RSVP to "No" on the Meetup site before the scheduled ride time. Please arrive a few minutes early so you are ready to ride at 6:00 pm!

Front and rear lights are required on this ride!  Bug spray is HIGHLY recommended! If you can stash something to sit on, do so!

    Is trail flooded at some points? I could join the group after 7pm, after work. Look for you(by txting?) At the Grove. Could this work out?
