No surprise that the December ride was a holiday-themed ride, nor that the starting point was chosen to be the same as last year’s December ride – The Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza. The market takes up the entire plaza, and there are food stands, beer stands and stalls that sell all kinds of German goods.
It was a fairly nice night weather-wise for Chicago with temps around 30 at the time of the ride, with a pretty strong wind gusting out of the south and west. This made for a busy market – packed with people.
We all managed to find each other and get ourselves some mulled wine before heading out on our ride.
And yes.. everyone decorated their helmets and/or bikes – some were more brightly lit than others!
Then it was time to head out and ride north out of the loop to our final destination – Four Moon Tavern, in the Roscoe Village neighborhood.
And once at our final destination, we had a lot of good beer, good food, and good conversation.
Thanks ladies for a great ride and a great evening!
