We have all told and heard "war stories" about things that have happened on the road. As riders, we get it, we understand, we have been there before. However, those stories can be more than banter at the coffee shop, the pub, or on the road. They can be art, can bring tears to our eyes and make us laugh out loud. They can tell us more about the teller, the rider, the other people on the road, the human condition. We solicited stories from riders and have seven great ones that will be told at Sketchbook Brewery this coming Sunday, July 9 between 12:30 pm and 2:00 pm. Sketchbook is right off of the Valley Line Trail. Why not ride over, lock up, order a beverage and listen to Tales from the Trails? Hang with a few bike nerds from Skokie Bike Network and be inspired by our storytellers.
