Dates for early summer Chicago bike ride

Hey guys,
I'm starting to plan a ride here from the Bike Garage. Im thinking early June. What are your thoughts? I just dont want to risk cold weather. I once again would provide food, route and after ride comforts. I'll probably limit it to 30 or 35 people just due to parking restraints. Please put your thoughts down below.

John

I'm in easy riding distance, so in principle, I'm in, unless something comes up.

The rest of us are expecting a full report, complete with photos. Otherwise, we won't believe it actually happened.

I'm likely. Sundays are better for me than Saturdays. Warm is good. Dry is good, but I understand you can't guarantee the weather. (Or can you?)

Great guys. I'll start putting something together. Most likely it will be a Sunday. It should be warm. I can't gaurantee NO rain. That is what worries me.. But we'd have fun anyway.

A prediction of rain all day would put me off. The hope of a few consecutive good hours would probably get me out there. I can delude myself as well as most other people.
