A roughly 100-mile tour of oddball locations around the edge of Chicago. The ride moves at roughly 10 MPH with plenty of stops for sightseeing, snacking and skinny-dipping.

Here's a write-up that will give you an idea of what to expect:

No pre-registration needed or ride fee, but a $10 donation to the Greater Chicago Food Depository is requested on the day of the ride.

The ride ends some time after midnight at The Handlebar.

I'll pick out a handful to post up here, too.

Me-n-Jera will be broadcasting on

Latercomers may be able to text "where" to to find where we last were, and the map may be online there as well. And of course fans can follow the action live.

Oh, how I wish the ride was next week!  I can't make it this year and it's killing me.  This is my favorite ride each year.

OK, so I am going to ride my team training ride (60 quick miles) starting at 7:30 am and finishing around 11, would someone on the ride be willing to send me their cell number so I can meet up with you?

Wicker Park is a few wheel revolutions from the CTA Blue Line L station at North/Milwaukee/Damen. NO CTA bicycle blackout.

I said I might attended, but as of right now I see nothing on the agenda for me tomorrow other than the air show. So I will see everyone there tomorrow
