Dunn Brothers on Lake Street has closed down :( So we are trying a new coffee shop just down the road. They seam to have a nice selection of food and drinks to get us going in the morning and to celebrate upon finishing. There is also the Howe, a bar and restaurant, just up the street, so if folks want someting more substantial that is also an option. There is street parking in the residential streets near by, but as always, we ecourage folks to ride to the ride.
This route is essecially a shorter version of our classic 200k City Slickers and will give you the flavor of the cities in a smaller package.
