We'd like to invite all the Chicago Kidical Mass folks to join the Family Fun Ride at the Elmhurst Cycling Classic on July 24th! Check out the ride at Registration is free in advance, or $5 on the day of the event. If you want the free registration but don't live in Elmhurst, print the waiver and mail it to Olympia Chiropractic Elmhurst location, 533 South York Road - Suite D, Elmhurst IL 60126. It will be a grand day of cycling...!

We have a route for tomorrow's Hyde Park Kidical Mass ride:

Come on and out and join us!  It's very accessible from the lakefront trail, and tomorrow should be gorgeous.  We mass up between 10:30 and 11 and head out at 11.

If you would like to be on a email mailing list for the Hyde Park Kidical Mass, please email hydeparkkidicalmass AT gmail DOT com.  

Nati and I are expecting a baby on November 29th, so this ride will not continue through the winter months without some alternative leadership (we aren't set up to take a newborn on a bike).  An email list will hopefully help with continuity, and make it easier to get the word out.

If you're on the north side, and thinking of heading south sometime for the Hyde Park ride, this Sunday would be an excellent opportunity!  It's supposed to be cold and clear, and should be a beautiful ride south along the lake to Harold Washington Park.  We'll have bike decorations and hopefully lots of riders in costumes!

We'll do special Halloween ride, next Sunday the 28th.  Come on out and join us for Hyde Park Kidical Mass!

The rides from Welles Park have been happening each month rain or shine.  I'll be there tomorrow.  With a beautiful forecast I expect a good turnout and a great ride.

I can't find any kids to bring! But I'll come anyway - anything to avoid housecleaning in August.
