May’s women-who-bike brunch

May’s women who bike brunch last Sunday was great fun, as always! It marked our first outdoor dining experience, on the rooftop of The Twisted Spoke.

There was plenty of bike ogling and shop talk, of course.





Also lots of general hanging out, which is the main purpose of the brunch.






One lady showed us this awesome pannier that she sewed herself. How cute!



And finally, good drinks and grub.  Yes, I scarfed that entire platter down.  I need my energy for biking!  ;)



See you next month? Hope so!


If you’re in Chicago and would like to join our next brunch – or if you’re in a different city and have questions about starting a similar get-together – email me at LGRAB [at]

    I’d LOVE to attend a women-who-bike brunch! I’m located in Queens, NY, however…

    …and I love that self-made pannier! Whoo hoo!

    You can tell from the smiles everyone had a great time, I enjoy seeing all the photos with the bikes and their riders. Are you feeling better.

    Looks wonderful, as always! I received a reader question on how to find a similar cycling event in a new town and I’ve been working on a post to be published this Wednesday. In it, I tried to give some tips for organizing such an event yourself (when one isn’t in place). Dottie, perhaps you can chime in with your words of wisdom on this on Wednesday, since you have first hand experience in organizing this? Thank you in advance!

    Hello Jerry,

    The bike pictured is my Trek Belleville. The front porteur rack comes standard on both the diamond and mixte frame Bellvilles.

    Thanks for a lovely time ladies! I had so much fun. Dottie I used your picture of the mint julep on my blog to illustrate the wonders of mint, I hope you don’t mind. I gave you credit and linked to this post of course. See you tonight at Critical Lass! – April
