Report from the March, 2009 Ride:
2 May 2009 marks the 80th anniversary of Winston Churchill’s invention of his exquisitely dry martini: copious amounts of gin poured over crushed ice while he observed the vermouth from across the room. The route, designed by the Right Honorable Lee Diamond, is 10 civilized miles meandering past (and into) some of The Windy City's most infamous (and still open) speakeasies. Where else but in these lively establishments would the ladies & gents find more bracing refreshments and hearty victuals?
As with our fellow tweed runs, we hope to offer small, but significant, prizes for:
Most Dapper Chap
Most Snappy Lass
Most Stylish Noble Steed
Most Inspired Interpretation of Tweediness
Best Mustache (open to both lads and inventive lasses)
