Summer Babes & Jazzy Gentlemen

In front of the Wicker Park Fountain, before the festivities began

Taking part in my first group ride here in the Chi took a lot of courage not knowing a soul, but was totally invigorating and empowering. It was a great way to ride - and get more familiar - with streets I probably wouldn't ride by myself, and, of course, meet other cyclists. Surrounded by good peeps who all share a love for la bici, on a perfect summer evening, doesn't get much better than this. There were so many beautiful, unique and custom built bikes...encouraging for me to work towards one day. (Cilantro held her own though.)

Thanks to John, Dottie and Trisha for organizing a fun event, complete with jazz tunes on wheels leading our route around the city for a sip of Prohibition-era cocktails. Salut!

We're so glad you came - it was great to meet you and Cilantro! We'll have to do it again sometime soon.
