MODIFIED WCCC Sunday Morning Ride
Sunday, August 27, 2017, 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM
This week, the Chicago Triathlon is taking over our normal starting spot. So we are changing it up just a bit. We have a couple of WCCC members participating in the International Race as a Relay Team so we will start off the morning by cheering on team WCCC!
You have two options to start. For the early birds, we will meet at the corner of Hamlin Park at Barry Avenue and Hoyne. There is plenty of free parking on the street in this area. The Relay starts at 7:43 AM at Dusable/Monroe Harbor. Leaving promptly at 6:45 AM will put us there just before the start.
After watching some of the swim, we will then continue on bike to go up north and stop along Lake Shore Drive just north of Belmont (N Lake Shore Drive runs along side the major Lake Shore Drive) where we should be able to get a great view of bikers who are on trip back to downtown without having to cross Lakeshore Drive.
So if you don't want to meet at 6:45 AM, sleep in a little and meet us at Roscoe and N Lake Shore Drive at 9:00 AM to catch some of the cyclist section. After we see team WCCC go by, we will go west on Roscoe to begin our trek up north.
16-18 MPH (except through the city). Early risers will get in around 60 miles. Late risers will get in about 50 miles.
A group lunch location and time will be organized before leaving so we can come back together as a club and share stories.
