Break out your best braces, skirt or knickerbockers, and don a fabulous hat, for it's time to honour (or just poke fun at) HM the Queen, on the occasion of her formal birthday.

We'll visit Chicago locations she has graced, and that bear her name (and any other cheesy 'royal'-related things we can think of).

Sorry about the date change. More Tweeds will be coming this Summer. Hopefully the change means you CAN come, and you can join us for a dandy outing!

I'll be late joining - I need to watch at least the first half of the game... :(

FYI: I changed the route and map a bit since the one I posted Tuesday. We now go from Navy Pier up Inner Drive a bit to The Drake, and then cross west to Clark and down to English. I pre-rode this leg. It will add alot more scenery and a pinch more humor to the ride!

Alan, You could dress up and watch the game at....English, where we'll be stopping by ;)

Megan, so there you go, you have the task of starting the custom of costumes at CM! Sally forth!

Probably not gonna make it on Saturday for this Tweed ride, unfortunately, bikes to collect (for Working Bikes) and then (World Cup) footy to watch - go, England! - followed by F1 qualifying from Canada ...

I only missed one ride, John, and it wasn't even a tweed ride! I'm not really into critical mass. Costumes are a must.

Definitely post your photos. This ride should also say, "featuring the return of Megan"

The Blues Festival is this weekend so it will be extra busy around the park. I suppose I should put up my photos from the last ride before this one.
