New Location for July!

We will meet on Tuesday, July 19th for the Buck Moon. Bring your best buckin jokes. 

We will meet at O'Shaughnessy's Public House, 4557 N. Ravenswood. They have bike racks and food. $2.50 PBR's on Tuesdays! 

School night so plan is to leave at 9:15pm. We'll do a park stop and then end up at one of my favorite bars in the city.

Strawberry Moon

The unofficial greeting of FBC is "Do I have time for a beer?" You roll up to Gannons 10 minutes before the intended departure time, scanning the level of beer in each glass on the table. You spot the slow drinker with a half full glass and the bartender actually makes eye contact with you as you walk in! You have time for a beer.

This full moon coincided with the summer solstice. We head out to celebrate the solstice and end up in a bunch of wood chips along the river. It was a very nice garden but not really what we were looking for so we headed to California Park.
Talking bikes, beer, and twerking witches.

After the park we headed to a bar that FBC has not been to before. They also have a patio and allows dogs! We were the only people in the bar so we took over the patio which is dangerously close the the neighbors. Sorry, we were trying to be quiet. There are a couple dart boards outside with some chalk that is probably supposed to be used for keeping score but is actually used for graffiti. 

Butthole commentary
We were joined by a new rider so after he was properly Malorted we took our full moon photo. We got a rare inside the bar photo!
Hands on the wall!

Next ride is July 19th!

Ride with us June 20th!

You know the drill, hang with friends and have a few, ride your bike some, see some of Chicago's secluded nature spots, ride some more, discover a new bar (or one we haven't been to in a while), admire the full moon(s) and then hear me tell you about how my dog hates you because it is clearly your fault that I am not home with him. Cheers!

We ride on a school night this month so be prepared to depart Gannon's at 9:15pm.

If you want to RSVP, go to The Chainlink FBC Event.
