From eastbound 103rd St., turn right at the light at Doty east of the expressway, and keep right; turn left (south) on Stony Island at the stop sign. About 1 mile down you'll see the gate on the left.

Peace Slow Rollers - One word: WOW!

Several words: We are deeply inspired by what we've achieved in less than 2 months. And, we are incredibly fortunate to have all of you on this journey together with us. We love and appreciate our incredible ‪#‎SquadChicago‬ team and the entire extended ‪#‎SlowRollCHI‬ family. We did this together! We will soon share a more formal, detailed season wrap up with everyone along with our plans to keep our #SlowRollCHI community connected through the winter.

Sorry I cannot make it Saturday.  I don't know how much good I can do with tools, but certainly will try to turn out if there are future dates!
