No, this isn't about being entirely ready to have God remove all defects of character.

It's about riding to Three Floyds and boosting our cognitive function every month this year! There's a somewhat consistent schedule -- usually the 4th Saturday of the month -- and you can qualify for the F-12 Award.

We meet between 9:30 and 10:00 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.

Lunch at 18th Street has returned. The sixth-best brewery in the world unfortunately remains pickup-only.

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. 16-20 mph. Bring money, government-issued ID, a lock, water and snacks to have en route, and panniers for beer you can't get in Chicago.

The risk level in Chicago is currently "high", but we remain in Phase 5. Masks are optional on buses and trains. The risk level in Lake County, Indiana, is currently "low", so no additional action must be taken. If you are sick with or think you might have Covid, please stay home.

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.

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.

So, woke up to an overnight flat. That put me a half hour behind. Still was golden. However, I couldn't find the source of the flat, just the puncture. So, I swapped out tubes with fingers crossed that the piece of glass might have worked itself out. Nope. I pull over in the south loop to discover I have a slow leak. Now must patch a tube. Still no find the suspect. However, I manage to repair flat, but it's minutes after 10, and I can't reach you via the no-reply email. I retreat to Hyde Park, where I currently am at 10:45. Gonna just head down to 18th Street -- that's your destination, no?
