Start the new year off on the right pedal with this unofficial Chicago Cycling Club New Year’s Day ride. Neither snow nor sleet nor ice nor hangovers will prevent an intrepid group of cyclists from riding on the first day of 2019. Embark on a 16-mile cycling odyssey that includes the obligatory brunch/lunch stop at a restaurant (Forbidden Root) in a great Chicago neighborhood (West Town).

Meet between 10:30 and 11 at Intelligentsia Broadway to warm up and caffeinate. We will return to this area for those who want to end there. The Red and Brown Lines at Belmont and the 36 Broadway and Divvy at Broadway & Barry are just minutes away. So easy to get to!

Snuggle up in your winter riding gear and come on out. Please bring a lock, money for lunch, and a helmet.

If you want to just meet us for lunch, we will arrive at Forbidden Root, 1746 W Chicago Ave, between 11:30 and noon. Their fresh and seasonal dishes highlight their craft beers and elevate the overall experience.

The scenic route -- with an extra special treat -- from Intelligentsia to Forbidden Root is about 9 miles.
