Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

night rides in chicago??

I recently moved up to the gold coast area and absolutely love riding through the streets at night. I dont have a set route but like to go at least 20 miles a night. I was wondering if there was anyone or a group here in chicago that regularly goes out for night rides. I would be interested in tagging alone, because as much fun as it is alone, i think it would be even better with some fellow enthusiasts. Maybe stop for a drink or snack along the way.

Night rides are the absolute best. Started spending some time hanging out with people that live downtown and I've really come to love spinning through the loop without traffic and people. The place has a totally different feel and vibe. Mayo was right about that.
