Join British Bicycles of Chicago to celebrate the 407th anniversary of the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot. How? By spiffing ourselves up, riding our bikes and having a bonfire.
We will meander from Roscoe Village to Bridgeport, pausing at Happy Village and Skylark to refresh ourselves and chat. The ride will be capped off with a roaring bonfire at Bubbly Dynamics, thanks to Mr. Owen Lloyd.
One of the best loved BBC rides, it promises a scenic route, great riding companions, snappy dressers and a fire hot enough to melt glass.
Break out your finest winter clothing, strap a log to your bike rack and fill your flask. A golden autumn day awaits you and your bicycle. BYOM (marshmallows).
Come earlier and enjoy lunch if you like ~
Departure from Four Moon Tavern will be at 1:30 pm; Skylark is cash only and you will need photo identification to enter.
On other creative fronts, Doty, whose Let's Go Ride a Bike blog, is the ultimate on fantastic fashion sense, rode with us. She also did us the honour of taking some awesome (as usual) snaps of both ladies and gents - inlcuding these two newly-weds!
And to Bubbly Dynamics as well as Owen & his Crew for hosting the fire!
Truly a jolly good roll! Double points to John for leading, Alan for Guying, Charlie for dragging, and all the wonderfully dressed and quaffed ladies (and gents) who rode! Many, many thanks to all!
I've now uploaded my pictures ...
I particularly like these, the pedicab and Guy burning ...
Our route yesterday, including our ride up from Bridgeport to the start at the Four Moon Tavern, punctuated by sheltering from the rain at Navy Pier and the 'shell' near Montrose Harbour ...
