LSD – Sheridan Road Drive 7/12

July 12th is the 12th anniversary of the Chicago  MINI Motoring Club’s first official club drive!!

To celebrate we will take a drive up scenic Lake Shore Drive and Sheridan Road.


WRAPUP:  A beautiful Sunday morning made a great drive.  We have about 25 MINIs for the route including some people who discovered our club en-route.  The route was twisty and fun with lots of fantastic homes to check out on the way.  The GreenTown Tavern welcomed us by opening up early especially for our club.  Thanks to all who came out for a fun drive, and special thanks to Rich for helping out managing traffic getting out of our starting locations!!

Spring Drive – April 12th

Our annual Spring drive will be on Sunday April 12th.

WRAPUP:  A beautiful spring day brought out over 55 MINIs looking for some fun back-roads to explore.  A good sized crowd met at Full Moon and generated a bunch of interest from the motorcyclists hanging out there.. We took a short cruise up Greenbay  Road and met up with a bunch more MINIs from the Milwaukee MINIs and other area clubs at Jelly Belly in Kenosha.  We then headed out for a fun backroads cruise out to the Culvers in Elkhorn Wisconsin.  A very fun way to open up the driving season.

Big thanks to Augie, Chris + Allison, Rich, and Sue for pre-driving the route, and to Cathy + Gary for keeping me heading in the right direction during the drive 😉
