The Cold Ride 2011

May not be that cold this year. So why not join The Best Club in the World as we tow a keg of beer on our home-made keg trailer to Alton IL this Saturday, March 5th 2011?

When the Cold Ride was conceived many years ago our destination was Fast Eddie's Bon Aire, but in the intervening years our relationship with that establishment has turned sour. This year we will be headed to the glamorous Pub Room in Alton.

Alton is a long way from Turtle Park (~40 miles) and it will take us a long time to get there since we will be having a keg party on the way. You are invited to join us. But you will need to secure your own ride back from Alton, unless you are up for riding back (another ~40 miles) in the middle of the night, jumping the fences on both sides of the Chain of Rocks Bridge, and possibly getting sprayed by a skunk.

If you want to earn some real FBC cred, this is the ride for you. Bring whatever you need to keep yourself and your bicycle going for a long day and long night of beer soaked fun. Eat a hearty breakfast or early lunch and meet at Turtle Park at 11:30am the party leaves at noon sharp.

If you or someone you know isn't up for the ride but wants to meet us at The Pub Room, party and give some FBCers a ride home that would be awesome. Let us know in the comments. I want to see some girls on this ride!

Let's Party!!

The google gives me Jay's Pub Room at 230 East Broadway. Is this correct? I've never been. Thanks

This was my first cold ride and it was an absolute blast. Thanks to Peat for making it back to the Lou in just a hair over two hours from Alton and keeping the party alive until sunrise.

Oh, and the video from last fiasco is up on Check it out.
