June Critical Lass – all lasses welcome!

Chicago’s second Critical Lass ride rolled out last Thursday, this time with a group of nearly 30. Like the inaugural ride in May, the ride was so much fun. I love it!

As you can see in my photos below, it’s a women’s ride, plain and simple. All lasses are welcome! I guarantee you will be greeted by the friendliest group of women in Chicago.

(Saying goodbye to mom)










Chatting with others and riding side-by-side was easy due to the super calm route.  After about an hour, we ended at a bar in Logan Square, where I stayed for a couple of hours, enjoying beer and buffalo wing specials.

The next Critical Lass ride is July 21 – always the third Thursday of the month, starting at the Polish Triangle. I hope to see even more lasses there next time! :)

I bow down, once again, to our amazing leader Ash.

    That looks like such fun! I love checking out everyone’s bikes- so cute. (Any idea what the yellow one in the 2nd photo is?)

    What a lovely group!
    And OMG I want those “mismatched” yellow and orange tights in photo 8!

    We need to get a group like this going in Boston. As soon as I have some free time :)

    That girl in the ric-rac dress stole my heart! She is so cute! Does she have a blog? Twitter? I need to stalk her.

      Ha :) What is a ric-rac dress?

    • Ash says:

      Only casual stalking, please.

      Dottie, ric rac is a kind of wavy trim for clothing.

      My blog is only bikey in nature. I never remember to document my sewing/crafting during the process. Once of these days I’ll get around to doing that.

    Ric-rac dress… I learned something new today :). Looks like you all had so much fun. Love the red and green-grayish Bianchi!

  6. Maureen says:

    *Ric-rac refers to the trim on the dress.
    All you cyclists look happy and ready to roll! What a nice way to get together and ride! Glad it was a success!

    I love how everyone looks so awesome on their bikes in these photos. Even with their helmets on! I always feel like mine sticks out a mile to either side of my head. I do notice that those neat streamlined helmets (I think Dottie poked fun at hers once in reference to a Mario mushroom) are much more stylish than the “regular” bike helmets.

    I’ll have to keep an eye out and see if my new town does anything like this :)
