Description

Join British Bicycles of Chicago to celebrate Bonfire Night in style!  We mark the foiling of the Gunpowder Plot and its leader, Guy Fawkes by donning spiffy tweeds, filling our flasks and bringing some wood to burn.

There will be a relaxed ride from the Loop to Bubbly Dynamics with a few stops along the way.  Urban parkland, industrial and residential areas will be decorated with fall colors just for us.

The route is here.

Warm yourself by the glow of the fire and enjoy some treats.  Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed riders and most artfully decorated bike.
