This is a ride to 3 Floyds Brew Pub (http://www.3Floyds.com/brewpub) in Munster, IN for food and drink before heading back to Chicago.
We'll meet at the Clock Tower and leave promptly at 7:30AM. We will have a brief stop at Queen's Landing (across from Buckingham Fountain) ~8:05AM and at Promontory Point (by lamb water fountain) ~8:40AM.
It's about 70 miles round trip if you ride both ways. (but there's beer and food in the middle!) 12-16mph. You can also opt for a shorter route home via the Flossmoor Metra so you'd only have to ride ~10 mi. after lunch/beer and there's also the South Shore Line in Hammond ~8 mi. away which now allows bikes on weekends.
We want to get there before they open at 11AM. It's the 7th Best Brewery in the World (https://www.ratebeer.com/ratebeerbest/BestBrewers-World2019.asp) and the line starts forming by 10:45AM). Bring money, an ID, a lock, spare tube/tire change kit, water and snacks. If you think you might take Metra home, bring a bungee cord too.
All riders should download and print a cue sheet (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9Pqw4mzSpeiMml5VEVNUmYwOTg/view?usp=sharing).
And it helps to study the route (https://ridewithgps.com/routes/22066885) and add it to your smartphone.
Ride will be cancelled/postponed if high chance of rain. As usual, helmets required!
