National Cycle Tour
Thanks to the efforts of John Zolot, we have been invited to a special event: a tour of the National Cycle manufacturing plant in Maywood. As you probably already know, National is one of the premier makers of aftermarket motorcycle windscreens, as well as being an Original Equipment supplier for the windshields found on many BMW fairings. This is a tour not to be missed! We'll meet at the plant at 8:00 a.m., and the tour begins at 8:30. There's a map in the Events Calendar area of this site. See you there!
Hot Dogs for August 21st
Our next Monday Hot Dog gathering will be at Tony's Steamers of Winfield, at 27 W 213 Geneva Road, at County Farm Road, halfway or so between Routes 38 and 64. This is another long-time favorite destination. We have tried to schedule good weather for this date! Of course, you can find a map to Tony's in the Events Calendar section of this site, or just click on the ride listing above.
As usual, this is a destination event. Get there on your own, or form your own group. Riders meet around 6:30 p.m. at the restaurant. New members and friends especially welcome! See you there....
"Come out for the ride, come out for the food, just come on out!"®
On Thursday, August 24, we feature the fourth in our series of summer Ice Cream Rides. We'll be going to an old favorite--The Plush Horse, at 12301 S. 86th Avenue, in southwest suburban Palos Park. This place dates back to the 30's and the ice cream is just as good now as it was then.
Our group plans to meet there about 6:30 p.m. It's a destination ride, so ride on your own, or assemble your own group to join us. You can find a map in the "Events Calendar" area of this site. Hope to see you!
"Come out for the ride, come out for the ice cream, just come on out!"
