Chicago Area Pre-Ride GetTogether – Sunday, June 26th

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?

Ooh, a bad day. There’s a Swedish Days ride out in the western burbs already committed to.

@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.

I’ll have to see what that day looks like for me….  It might be possible….

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).

Doing a ride that is supposed to end around 6:00ish….  I will try to stop by afterwards….  Giant….  Are you doing Swedish Days????  If you are and you see this before you go, PM me….  Perhaps we can ride part of it together????

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
