16th Annual Amlings Cycle Holiday Toy Ride - REMOTE: Amling's Cycle, 8140 N. Milwaukee, Niles, IL ~ Dave Barish?
 
 
O COME ALL YE CYCLISTS
 
With the Holiday Season upon us, it’s important to think of those less fortunate than ourselves. Amlings Cycle has partnered with the Marines Corp Reserve’s Toys-For-Tots campaign to help make the Holidays brighter for some children.
 
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 14th, 2017 at 6:30am
 
Participants will caravan from Amling’s Cycle (8140 N. Milwaukee, Niles, IL) to Corcoran’s Grill & Pub (1615 N. Wells) to meet a waiting truck from the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign. We'll then enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast courtesy of Corcoran’s.
 
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
It costs one toy. (Of course, you’re welcome to bring as many as you want!) Drop off a new unwrapped toy at Amling’s Cycle. We’ll make sure it gets delivered to the Marines to make a kid smile this Holiday.  Note: You can drop your toy(s) off on the day of the ride.
 
The time has come to once again pull a trailer full of toys for the kids. The 16th Annual Amling's Cycle Holiday Toy Ride is ON!

The Winter Solstice Percussion Concert Ride - Remote: Dunkin Donuts, Howard & Western ~ Dave Barish
Remote Start: Dunkin Donuts at Howard and Western
 
We will again fight Seasonal Affective Disorder by riding city streets on one of the shortest days of the year to the Winter Solstice Concert.  This unique show is well worth the early morning departure! 
 
The ride leaves from Dunkin Donuts at Howard and Western at 5 am sharp. I plan to get some coffee!  We should arrive at Constellation, the home of Links Hall, 3111 N Western at about 5:45 am.  The show starts at 6 am.  Your best choice is to buy tickets in advance at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/29th-annual-winter-solstice-concerts-hamid-drake-michael-zerang-tickets-47593904650
 
If the conditions are not conducive to riding (and at this time of year anything is possible) we will meet at the concert at 6 am and still walk to Cornerstone for breakfast after the show.  Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.
