Two Hot Dog Rides for Halloween!
Here comes Halloween! And to celebrate, our Hot Dog scouts have found two destinations for us.
To the north lies Irving's--for Red Hot Lovers (clever, eh?) which is at 3207 Lake Road in Wilmette. They are in the strip mall at the corner of Lake Avenue and Skokie Boulevard (US 41), just east of the Edens Expressway.
South of the city is one of our regular favorites: Mickey's Ribs, at 17432 South Oak Park Avenue in Tinley Park. Indoor seating, good menu.
As usual, you can find a map to each of these restaurants in the "Events Calendar" area of this website. These are both destination rides as usual, so come on your own or form your own riding group. We gather at 6:30 p.m. Whichever you choose, we look forward to seeing you!

Frostbite Ride -- Make Plans Now!
Don’t forget our annual tradition, the Frostbite Ride, scheduled for Nov. 20th, the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The group rate is $19.50 per person which includes sales tax and tip. The meal selection includes one of six entrees covering red meat, poultry, and vegetarian options. Also included is a salad, side pasta or potato, dessert and coffee or tea.
This year, we will be leaving from several convenient locations; please select the one that works best for you. You are also welcome to go on your own, but please know that we won't be able to include you in our head count, so seating with the group might not be possible.
If we have a large number of riders at any one location, we may split into groups. So, if you are willing to help lead a smaller group, you can let the leader know when you get there. Our lunch reservation time is 1 p.m.
Each group will have a sheet with the ride information as well as group ride guidelines for everyone’s convenience. Please note the gathering and departure times for the location you choose as they differ from each other!
Of course, prior to heading out, please remember to wear all of your safety gear, check that your bike is in good repair, have plenty of gas for the ride and check the pressure in your tires.
