No, this isn't about humbly asking Him to remove our shortcomings.

It's about riding to Three Floyds and boosting our cognitive function every month this year!

We meet between 8:30 and 9 at Intelligentsia Broadway to caffeinate. We then take Barry east and the lakefront trail south. Feel free to join up anywhere along the trail. Just let us know where so we can look for you.

The sixth-best brewery in the world is unfortunately currently pickup-only.

Lunch is on the way back at the 27th annual Pierogi Fest in Whiting. It's an opportunity for people to return to their roots, celebrate their heritage, and have a lot of fun. The incredible event draws more than 300,000 people from across the nation and the world. Numerous live music acts will be performing across multiple stages, and dozens of food vendors will be serving up tasty eats and great brews on tap (and in cans!) to enjoy.

42 miles total if to return you ride back to Hammond and take the South Shore Line, 45 if you ride to Flossmoor Station and take the Metra, 50 if you ride to 93rd and take the Metra or to 100th and take the J14, 55 if you ride to 71st and take the J14, 70 if you ride all the way. 12-14 mph. Bring money, government-issued ID, a lock, lights if you might stay late, water and snacks to have en route, and panniers for beer you can't get in Chicago.

Chicago has reached Phase 5. If you are fully vaccinated, you are not required to wear a face covering. If you are unvaccinated, wear a face covering indoors and maintain six feet social distance indoors and outdoors. If you are sick with or think you might have Covid, please stay home. Masks are still required on buses and trains.

Online resources: Google map, cue sheet, South Shore Line schedule, Metra Electric train schedule, Jeffery Jump (J14) bus schedule, Bikes on the South Shore Line, Bikes on the Metra, Bikes on the Bus, and, to save a minute at the start, the nifty online CCC waiver.

Running down the road? Try to loosen your load!

PS: I give these rides these names because I find them humorous in an ironic way. It's not my intent to make light of addictions, efforts to recover from addictions, or 12-step peer support groups like AA. If you're trying to drink in moderation, we'll support you. If you're trying to abstain, you may want to give this ride a pass.
