Let's ride the Lakefront Trail to Hyde Park for Brunch!

Time to get out and start enjoying our wonderful lakefront.

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.

Meet us at starting point at 8:45, sign off on CBG waiver and enjoy a snack (provided my me).

We will start PROMPTLY at 9:00am.

We can meet you at other points along the trail:

Belmont, 9:15, @ parking lot entrance

North Ave, 9:25, @ Boathouse

Near Navy Pier, 9:35, just south of Beach (where Tri-Athletes swim)

Museum Campus, 9:45, @ bottom of hill

Hope to get to Hyde Park by 10:15am

Eat at Valois, 10:15-11:00

Depart Hyde Park after Brunch.

Expected to complete ride at Wilson Ave by 12:30pm

Please bring your helmet, a lock, your ID, a snack and some cash for Brunch.

Bring CASH as Valois does not accept plastic.

NO HELMET, NO RIDE!!

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

I will email everyone my phone number Friday (day before ride).

If the forecast calls for thunderstorms, I will cancel this ride.

Thanks.
