4th of July weekend in Chicago.. Any rides?
Going to be in Chicago the entire week June 28th - July 1st for work. I'm going to stay the weekend and bring my bike. I've never been to the city when it's above... 15 degrees or so. So I really look forward to riding in some traffic, seeing the waterfront, and sweating my ass off.
Anyone planning anything?
I like the bike
Don't know of any rides but the lakefront trail, although busier in the summer, is a fun road for sure.
You could check the chainlink (a cycling specific chicago social networking site) calender. There are usually a few things going on. Right now there is a night architecture tour of the loop and a frozen dessert ride. you could check to see if anything else pops up. Otherwise just get a map and ride around. I prefer the loop and the north, north/west parts of the city, the lakefront trail is nice but I tend to get bored quickly if I don't have to focus on riding all of the time.
