Northshore ride 5/19

I'm planning to ride roughly Evanston to Glencoe and back but in a large loop rather than a out and back style. I'm thinking of starting out around 8:30AM, post up if you want to go. Figure beginner pace 15-16mph average, there's a nice downhill that you can usually hit 32-35 on.

If my googlemapfu is accurate, that's at least 60 miles. That would kill me.

I would totally be in for this ride if I was here this weekend. Post up next time you're doing this loop again, I'd be in if I'm around.

I've got an all day class on Saturday. A family function Sunday. I'll need to see what time it is on Sunday if you are planning on going out Sunday.
