3 Floyds Ride

For some reason, Chicago cyclists have this reputation as being big drinkers. Could it be the good amount of great breweries in the vicinity? Aye, but also the fact that riding bikes and beer drinking goes so well together.

This Sunday, March 13, go for a ride at a quick pace to 3 Floyds in Munster, Indiana with the Bonebell Crew. Meet at 9 a.m. sharp at the Lakefront Path and 63rd in Hyde Park for a spirited jaunt to enjoy suds and food at one of the premiere area brewers.

Please take note of the advice in the above link. The ride is not for pure novices or folks who have not ridden a bike since last fall. Expect to work up an appetite with about 30 miles of raw bike action.

Riding a bike on the open road is the same as driving a car, with respect to the law, so responsibility and maturity is of course warranted.

To quibble, 63rd Street Beach is not in Hyde Park. That would be the community area of Woodlawn.
