How about a slow race like the one in the WSJ article at open streets?

The Manor & Meadow Tour

is a mere sixty days out.  I still need committments for volunteers to be ride marshalls.  Marshalls will assist the Ride Captain keeping the group together and handling enroute breakdowns.  PM me via The Chainlink if you'd like to help out.

I’ve designated March as the official kick-off month for organizing The Manor & Meadow Tour.  Though we’re off to a good start with raffle ticket sales for the Ace of Clubs bike, there is still a lot of work to be done.  We have 100 days to put together an excellent ride.


I need firm commitments of time from 15 to 20 people to handle tasks like being Ride Marshalls, serving at the tea tables, selling raffle tickets and assisting the organizers with routine jobs.


If you can commit your entire day on Sunday, June 10 please get in touch with me through The Chainlink, The Manor & Meadow Tour website or the Manor & Meadow Tour Facebook page.  All proceed from the raffle and donations at The Manor & Meadow Tour go directly to Working Bikes Cooperative, Chicago.

Another splendid ride! The Autumnal Slowterium was perfect. Great new members joined and dear friends returned. Lunch at Rajun Cajun was delicious. Our detour to Jimmy's Woodlawn Tap was just what a slow rider needed after wrapping up a tour through the park.

See you this winter! Wonderland Slushterium?
