If anyone wants to grab a drink between 5pm - 6pm before CCM, I'm going to stop in at Rudy's Bar & Grill at 69 E Madison next to Pizano's.( They've got a decent beer tap (3F's Gumball Head on draft). I'll be the tall dude wearing a red biking jacket at the bar.

I'm already downtown.

This is the best ride since its good Friday so a whole lot of people aren't driving anyways today. See you all there!

Anyone from the SW side (Kedzie/Archer area) going today?

If you are, meet up at Western/Archer around 1630 hours (4:30pm for the civvies). We can take an easy ride down Archer to Halsted to Washington, and pick up anyone else that wants to go along on that route to The Plaza.

I will be the Dude with the tan helmet and blue knobby tires, on a black and silver Schwinn Frontier. Probably wearing a green jacket with a MLD patch on my left arm.

See y'all at The Plaza !!!!

The ride's getting good buzz on FB.
Weather now forecasts 46F sunny 6NE at 6pm, 38F clear 4E at 11pm.
Nobody's got a map.

Best event I'm finding Friday evening as a drinking / eye candy destination option is the Foxy Goat Lisa Memorial Fundraiser Bakesale at 3058 W. Irving Pk. I'm pretty certainly heading there at end of mass, regardless of where mass ends, and plan to print some flyers for it.

Northsiders have on rare occasion met up on the lakefront path at Foster, maybe after 4:30, for the ride down.  I could do that with you.
And Aaron and crew I think sometimes gather at a Lakeview bar first.
