The Nomad’s are going to have a motorcycle ride. We will meet at 9am sharp at the Shell gas station on 191st and Lagrange in Mokena, IL and will be riding up to Union, IL. We plan to stay off the highway on the way there and may take the highway on the way back. Once there we plan to visit the Illinois Railway Museum. Entry into the museum is $14 per person. The museum, all meals and etc is pay on your own. From there we will head back home. There maybe stops in between to eat and etc either on the way up or on the way back.
If you plan to go or have questions please send an email to web@Chicagonomads.com so we can make sure we leave with everyone.

September 11th, 2016 Old Plank Road Trail, Frankfort – This ride departs at 10:30 a.m. from downtown Frankfort, Breidert Green Community Park, White and Kansas Streets. We will ride the paved trail 8-10 miles, stopping on our return at The Bulldog Ale House to enjoy refreshments, alfresco style (their $5.00 Bloody Mary’s are fantastic and $4-32 oz beers will quench your thirst) then ride a short 4 miles back to Frankfort.
July 27th, 2016 – Chicago Lakefront: This ride will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the 31st Street parking lot ($1.00/hr). We’ll ride to North Avenue Beach, have lunch, then ride back to our cars.
August ??: “Bike the Burbs for Beer”. This bicycle pub crawl is a very informal bike ride through parts of Flossmoor, Chicago Heights, South Chicago Heights and Steger. Ride begins in Flossmoor at 10:30 a.m. and ends at about 4:30 p.m. We will ride through several majestic old neighborhoods and give people a chance to see parts of the area that they may not see very often, and for some, areas that they have never seen. We stop at several local establishments to relax and enjoy a drink or two. All the places we visit are family owned and operated by great people that support their local communities. They’re all old school so if you’re looking for anything new, “upscale”, or trendy you will be disappointed. There is no cost for the ride except what you choose to spend on food and drink. A buffet lunch will be available at 3 Star for $7.00.

Our general meeting is the third Thursday of the month at Gaelic Park, 147th St., Oak Forest, 7:30pm.
