It's officially tights weather.  Anybody up for a ride through Busse Woods?

Feeling a little… sluggish? Winter weight getting you down? Avoiding your bike? You know the one leaning in the corner of your cold garage giving you the evil eye every time you start up your car? Need some inspiration to get back on your bike? Well come join Mikes Bike Shop for our bicycle-themed movie nights!


Meet us at Emmett’s in Palatine at 7:00PM and enjoy some of their delicious food and beverages while we take in some of the greatest cycling films of all time. This year we’ll be watching Hell on Wheels on January 27th and A Sunday in Hell on February 24th so SAVE THOSE DATES!


Hell on Wheels

Perhaps one of the greatest Tour de France documentaries ever made, watch as Eric Zabel and Team Telecom attempt make history all the while overshadowed by one of the greatest battles of all time: Lance Armstrong Vs. Jan Ullrich.


A Sunday in Hell

Follow Eddy Merckx, Roger De Vlaeminck, Freddy Maertens and Francesco Moser as they tackle the Paris-Roubaix spring classic, notorious for the hellish paves (cobbled roads) of northern France.

So, if I grew up in the burbs, but live in the city, can I join?

I do ride out often to Arlington Hts., Buffalo Grove, Glenview! I am the guy who will ride Milwaukee and Northwest Hwy. (usually on Sunday) trying to hold 20-25mph...cursing all the gas addicts!

Don't follow my lead, and don't respond to my's rhetorical.

Milder temps this week. Give me a shout if you're up for a weekday ride.

No ride in Busse Woods for me this morning. It's simply too hot. I'll try to schedule a ride when the weather gets a little cooler.

For those of you interested in seeing excellent vintage bikes, there is a Classic Bicycle Show and Swap this Sunday, August 15 at Village CycleSport, 1313 N. Rand Road, Arlington Heights. For more detail you can see their website.

Yep, I'm the same guy. Here's the Raleigh your cable guide went on.

I agree with your salmon comment. I can do evenings.
Comment by mike w. on August 11, 2010 at 12:16pm
Damn. Gotta be at work. Anyone for later meetups? Weekends in Busse are like riding salmon-style in Chicago traffic... maybe a weekday evening or 'way early sunday?
