Let's ride from the Clocktower, Waveland Golf Course at 9:00 a.m. to Three Floyds in Munster, Indiana.
My route is down the lakefront path, down the Burnham Greenway, along Wolf Lake, back to Burnhad across the border to Munster.
I am going with a younger rider and will likely ride to Flossmoor, 12 miles away, for the train ride back to the City. Thankfully, there's another brewery at the Flossmoor train station in case you worked up another thirst on that leg of the trip.
This is more or less an all-day ride. Be able to ride about 13-15 miles an hour on a sustained basis. This is a NO-drop ride.
To set a pin on this, we meet:
9 a.m. at Waveland Golf Course, east of Tennis Courts and Lakefront Path, right under the Clocktower. There's a bathroom there, a restaurant (which may not be open yet) and is a good place to meet.
If there's a group of downtown riders, we can make arrangements to meet them at 9:30 on the bike path, in that open area east of LSD at Buckingham Fountain.
