    Turned out to be a nice day especially for January
    Gary (xc204) and Rik (Oldgreaser) Made it out for the ride.

    Getting ready to ride.

    Taber's original 50 year old tire on the typhoon finally gave up :shock:

    He decided to stay home for this ride. "Schwinn or nothing" :wink:

    So Garret and I rode down to the Daily bar and grill
    Met up with the Gary and Rik. Put Garret in charge of the camera. ( Lots of close ups :wink: )

    Gary busted a brake strap... Good news we were close to my house, stopped off and made a quick repair in the basement so he could make the 7 mile ride back to the train

    We're not in Chicago...but Linda and I can represent the Milwaukee Chapter :D I'm playing. We'd love to ride future cruises, but we gotta wait til our truck is fixed. Right now our bikes won't fit in our Civic :?
