Formerly Women's Bike Picnic, but -- hey -- who are we to keep anyone from the picnic fun. All letters of the alphabet are welcome, provided that you bring a suitably adorned picnic basket and a dish to share.
So grab your bike and line that basket with a frilly doily and come on out. Since it's the 2nd Saturday of the month, we'll meet at Cosmic Bikes and hear over to Jeff Park Sunday Market to fill our baskets with picnic comestibles.
What to bring?
It's a pot-luck, so bring a brunchable dish to share or plan to pick something up at the market. Bring a picnic blanket, your bike & helmet, of course! Bring a friend or two also. We'll provide mimosa fixin's. You can also bring other beverages of your choice.
When: Sunday, August 13 from 10am to 2pm
Where: Meet at Cosmic Bikes. We'll ride to the Jefferson Park Sunday Market, and from there head up the North Branch Trail toward Skokie Lagoons between Willow and Tower Roads.
Pace: Easy-to-moderate pace, no-drop social ride.
Route: Approx. 26 miles RT most of it on off-street trail.
Ride at your own risk. Ending time is approximate.
