Hope you can join me as I take my ride down to Hyde Park and back. Our ride is going to be about 32 miles (round trip), we will be riding at a moderate/fast pace of 12-15 miles per hour (depending on wind).
If you can not maintain a 12-15 mph pace, please do not RSVP for this ride.
Note: Parking is a plenty at Wilson. You can park in the lot and pay or on the perimeter for free.
Keep in mind that this is a weekend ride and there maybe a race and parking may be a challenge and you may have to park to the west of Lake Shore Drive.

The weather is going to be cooler but great for a bike ride, remember your body will be about 20 degrees warmer while riding.
