Rear entrance to Dino's
Calling all cyclists and beer lovers to the 1st annual "Biking the Burbs for Beers" bicycle bar crawl. We will tour the many of south suburbs including- Chicago Heights, South Chicago Heights, Steger, Park Forest, Matteson, and Flossmoor. The crawl will stop at many of the most storied (if not currently the most trendy) establishments in the far south suburbs. Places where real men stop for cold one.
Feel free to post your comments and suggestions.
The crawl will kick off from the Flossmoor Station parking lot at 11:00 AM on Saturday August 27th. We'll bike through Old Flossmoor, Graymoor Olympia Fields and the Longwood Farms section of Chicago Heights and end up at our first stop- Dino's Food and Liquors on Ashland Ave in Chicago Heights.

Better drink up at J' Martin's because from there the crawl will make the 6 mile ride through Steger and Park Forrest picking up the Old Plank Road Trail off of Western Ave. After a short ride on the trail we'll stop in downtown Matteson at Freeh's Again.
