  • Details will be posted as they become available…..

    A group of us from The Chainlink in Chicago
    thought it would be nice to meet other Chicagoland Ragbrai riders before the
    big ride.   

    Tentative plan includes a ride
    and bbq, at a beach or someone’s house.

    Thoughts, suggestions?

  • @giantron – it’s going to be a beach party and then BBQ at 5 PM. Maybe you can make the BBQ part?

  • @ Julie

    Might be able to do that!
    I grew up on the North side, so parking at Montrose Beach would be best I assume?

  • parking at montrose is a beast, yes.  I would recommend if you bring your bike in your car park and ride over to us.  Or if you are running late you can just meet me at my house, I will probably leave the beach a little early to set up, prob around 4:30 or so.

  • That sounds fun.  I’m a first timer as well as my buddy (we formed a team). He lives in Wrigleyville while I’m out in the land of free parking (Schaumburg).  We are riding the Utter Century on Sunday (6/5).

  • Was supposed to meet up w/a friend for other plans but may swing by early at the beach or drag him along, sounds like lots of fun and would be cool to know some chicago people.

  • Hi – 4th year RAGBRAI. Live/work in north shore burbs.
    My husband and I are hooked for life! Love it!
    Not sure how we’re gonna roll this year.
    We have done both supported camping – and host homes.
    I’ve been checking the forums and reaching out to teams and individuals
    to explore options/openings. Any RAGBRAI local gatherings coming up?
    Any chainlink rides upcoming with RAGBRAI jibber jabber, maybe?
    Just thinking out loud…………. :-)
    Thx, Michele and Jim
