I am very interested in learning about the Chicago Perimeter Century. Who, what, where, and when? Sounds like an interesting bicycle adventure.

If you use the search term "perimeter ride" in the upper right hand corner of this page, you'll get 26 pages of photos and threads about the ride.
The ride is usually in late September. Planning will probably start sometime in August.

I liked it better when it was mid/late August. Longer days and warmer temps. Last years was pretty cold towards the end.

Its one of my favorite rides of the year!  I missed the last two years and if I'm in town I'll be there.  Its the best ride to meet people.

John G did a great job and I hear the crew picked it up quite well last year.

The switch to September is more recent.  It was in August for years.

My bad. Last year was late September (29th); 2011 it was August 20; 2010-August 28; 2009-August 22...

Late August, early September might be the ideal time for the 2013 Perimeter Ride. 

But not on the same date as Four Star.

Of course not. :-)

That would be nearly impossible. Perimeter Ride has always been on a Saturday, FS Tour on Sundays.

So the perimeter ride on August 24th it is, then? ;)

Wouldn't it be better not to have them on the same weekend?  Some people like to ride both events, or do the Perimeter ride and volunteer at Four Star.

Yup. Personally, I'd vote for the Perimeter Ride being 9/7 or 9/14.
