Greenbelt Reel Lawnmower Society
Rode the Boulevard ride in Chicago today. Perfect weather and a well-organized ride with lots of volunteers with large orange flags to show where to turn, really good pavement markings (except one spot with the confoundingly ambiguous sign "CONTINUE RIDING" and finally a single stenciled arrow) The folder was the right bike (aside from fitting into Frank's car next to his, with the other two bikes on the rack on the back) since it squirts so easily through anything and bounds over rough roads. Saw a soul or two I recognized from GITAP.
