Road Ride!

Saturday 8 am depart McDonald Woods Forest Preserve on Grass Lake Road

This may be the last Road Ride of the season! The weather looks good–cool start, but good. Let’s go to Twin Lakes or maybe Kenosha? Depends on the group and we’ll stop for coffee on the turn.

Sunday ride-on your own.

With the cool weather here Sunday will more often than not go inside to the spin studio or some leg work in the gym.

Veloist After Ride Party is Cancelled

Sorry to have to do this boys, but with so few able to make the ride and after ride–it would be better if we plan for a late breakfast stop after the ride for anyone that’s interested. That way if you’re there, good. If not, no worries.

Veloist After Ride Party Sept 20

Veloist Party

Save this Date. Saturday, September 20 After the Ride Party.

On Saturday, Sept 20 we will depart from 412 Woodland Trail, Lindenhurst for our weekly club ride. On our return we will raise a glass of beer and eat a Italian sausage or two in celebration of a great season of riding.

Bring something to change in to after the ride if you’d like and tell your wives you might be late getting home.

Put this date on your calendar, hope you can join us. And if you can, let me know so I can plan to have enough beer.
