Hiya all,

Not much action here recently, but if you live in the 47th ward (or nearby), we're organizing a Ward ride with Alderman Pawar on Saturday morning 9/21 - so save the date! It's a slow, family-friendly traffic-rule-following ride with a few stops to check out/ hear from folks on the latest infrastructure projects in the ward. Starts at Chase park and ends at Lincoln Square Applefest. I hope to see some of you regular cyclists there! (You can also let me know if you'd like to help out - we can use some corkers.)

Just rode the lakeshore trail nortbound from downtown for the first time in a while yesterday--looks like they just finished repaving the December storm damage near North Ave and are set to fix up the stretch up near Fullerton.  Better news for rollerbladers, true, but nice all the same.

Thanks to Michael during August's North Side CM! Replaced one of our group's flat in under 5 minutes in the dark and the mass even waited up! Great experience for our first time out, looking forward to tomorrow's C.C.M ride. And awesome videos John.
