It is time this Saturday for the Midnight Marauders 4th annual Subterranean Ride. This has been the most popular ride we have put on since its inception. Basically it is a tour of the underground, and sub street level roads, oddities, attractions, and distractions in the down town area. For first timers, it will be a chance to see places that you probably never would, and for veterans, yet another chance to figure out “Where the hell did we go?” There will be some exciting new twists this year if we can pull them off, so even veterans will experience some new things.

For those unaware, there is a labyrinth of streets, tunnels and service roads under the city that only people that work there normally see, but this month Marauders get too as well.

We will meet at the traditional location, the Billy Goat Tavern, 430 N. Michigan Av(lowerlevel), at 11pm, August the 21st. It is located at the intersection of Hubbard, and Lower Michigan Av., if you cant find it go downstairs. There will be a couple rougher sections on the ride, but any serviceable bike should work.

This is not a trailer friendly ride, unless it is a single wheel jobbie.

I'm gonna go all Subterranean on you! ;-)
Looking forward to my first Marauders ride! (Be gentle. . .)
eee! sub ride!

this is nathaniel's last chicago marauders ride since he is leaving for Portland at the end of the month. can't wait to see the new twists and turns we'll take!
This sounds like a lot of fun - since I missed the L.A.T.E. Ride this year, this sounds like it would be even better. Does anyone know how long the ride is supposed to be (distance/time)?
Also, without giving too much away, does anyone know where the ride is supposed to end up?
The Ride ends when:

You decide to peel off because of various reasons
You run out of your choice of "supplies"
The sun comes up and then you've had your fill of Corned Beef Hash at the Diner

Can't wait for this one. Marauders is like my once a month RAGBRAI.

Is anyone going to sula fest in logan prior to this shin dig? This could be a pretty sweet day.

Last year's changed my life, by introducing me to new downtown routes I've used routinely since. I'm coming with usual posse.
Subterranean ride was my first Marauders ride last year, just a few weeks after moving to Chicago!
Can't wait to do it again, maybe ill have some sort of idea where we are this time!
see you all sat night!
Rummor has it we will be ending around 31st street beach. I will have to remain relativly sober, as no one else knows the sub well enough to lead this. And Laura, if this is only your second time, I would guess you still wont know where the fuck you are. If you have the testicular fortitude to finish, you wont get home till after sunrise.
Looking forward to having my first ride as well!
