Starting and ending where? What kind of pace?

Some of us vintage types often ride the Lakefront Trail Sunday mornings, meet at the north edge of McCormick Place around 8:30, then ride to 55th and turn west, heading for the Bonjour Cafe. Chat about stuff while we eat our croissants and drink our espresso, then head back. We come from various locations. I'm probably the furthest away, riding in from Evanston. The round trip for me is about 44 miles. I sometimes meet up with @Chicago Al at Foster.

May not be a ride this Sunday, as it's Chicago Triathlon weekend. LFT is likely to be a zoo. Will be interesting to see how they work around all the trail construction.

I might ride Sunday. If I do, I could be coerced into riding to Hyde Park for coffee at Bonjour on 55th.
