The Southside Ride for Chicago Critical Mass

This Critical Mass route proposal is a 14-mile tour of some of Chicago's African-American cultural & historical landmarks. Highlights along the route will include the site of the Chess Records studios, the Bronzeville Victory Monument, Ida B. Wells' home, the Harold Washington Cultural Center, the DuSable Museum, the Obamas' house and much more. The ride will end at the new 31st Street marina and beach.

A special thanks to the lovely Eboni Senai, a true gem in our city. Her work as the Founder of Red Bike & Green - Chicago is energizing bicycling culture in the African American community of Chicago. Also want to share a huge thanks with John Greenfield, Willow Naeco, and Steven Lane for their early, active, and consistent support of this effort.

We will meet up at 5:30pm on Friday, August 31st at the Picasso statue at Daley Plaza. Please join us for a beautiful ride through parts of the Southside of Chicago!

5:30 huh?

It sounds like a fun ride but I can't remember the last time CCM actually left before 6:10 or even 6:15.   

hey James - its a good point. we are telling people 5:30pm as we expect some first-timers to ride with us. and we want to connect with them and chat a bit to prepare them for the ride. you gonna ride?

I think the plan is for the south side ride to leave at 5:30 and the usual Foster beach ride will leave closer to 6:30?

So the post-ride ride will be from 31st street beach back to Wicker/Bucktown/Logan Square where 80%+ of CCM riders actually live...

that would be awesome. wait...then again...
