No, this isn't about trying, after having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these Steps, to carry any message to others, or to practice any principles in all our affairs.

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 8:30 and 9 at Intelligentsia Broadway to warm up and 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 at 18th Street on the way back.

45 miles total if to return 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. 14-17 mph. Bring money, government-issued ID, a lock, lights since the day is short, water and snacks to have en route, and panniers for beer you can't get in Chicago.

Chicago is currently in Phase 5. Masks are required, regardless of vaccination status, in all indoor public settings. Masks are required on buses and trains. If you are sick with or think you might have Covid, please stay home.

Online resources: Google map, cue sheet, Metra Electric train schedule, Jeffery Jump (J14) bus schedule, 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.
