Ubuntu Chicago Bike Ride

The Ubuntu Chicago LoCo Team is hosting its first ever group ride this Sunday, July 18. The ride will kick off from the Geneva, IL Metra Train Station at 12PM. If you are in Chicago and would like to come out, hop on the 10:47AM train on the Union Pacific/West line out of the Ogilvie Transportation Center. The train will arrive in Geneva at around 11:50AM. Once everyone is there we will take off and cruise either south or north on the Fox River Trail for a few hours. We will make stops for some ice cream, food, or cold beverages, and the speed will be as fast as the slowest person. This is a cruising ride for the team to come together and hang out on a great summer day in the Chicagoland area. We can either ride until 4PM so people can get back to the train station to head back downtown or 6PM. We can play this by ear and see how long people want to hang out for, but I am guessing 4PM will probably be more than enough on many people’s rear ends.

If you are interested, RSVP here in the comments, on our mailing list, or hop into our IRC channel on freenode in #ubuntu-chicago. Hope to see you there!

    Take out your GPS and improve openstreetmap’s coverage for your area! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Always take my GPS now. I have a question if you are still around. If the area is already well mapped, does adding my info I get improve or is it just redundant data? I need to upload my GPS data that I have for the past couple of weeks, glad you reminded me ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Ha!Nice ride!
    Wish we ubuntu fans in China can have a ride like this

  • Al G.

    i won’t be going on the bike ride, but if i can and ain’t on a road trip out of town or some such, i’ll try and hop on the scoot, meet you at the starting point and just say hi and get acquainted.

    but i might be going south or east, so it’s a tad iffy.

    either way – nice to know you guys are in the area – some opportunity will arise in the future if not now, no doubt.

    Is this ride still on considering the forecast?


  • Cezar, yeah it is. 30% chance, plus it will be in the DuPage bubble which saves us from quite a few storms. Now if it is 10am or later tomorrow and it looks like absolute shit, I definitely won’t be showing up.

  • Cezar

    Excellent. 90% chance I’ll be there.

  • Cezar

    I won’t be able to come. I’ve been reminded of a family function going on this Sunday. Let me know when you guys do it again. Or just another ride with you Rich :*
