Monthly Meetings & Socials
Folks on Spokes club meetings will be held every month (except November & December) on the fourth Thursday at 7:30pm. The location is at LIFE TIME Fitness 16333 South La Grange Road, Orland Park, IL 60467. Click here for map.
Meetings are scheduled each month from January through October. At these meetings, programs are open to the public and may include slide show presentations of members trips in the US and overseas, as well as speakers on cycling advocacy and physical fitness. There is time for social interaction during the meeting and light refreshments are provided. Rumor has it that sometimes there will be door prizes for a few lucky attendees.
Programs for the next club meeting are published in the Spokin' Word (our newsletter), sent out on our announcement list, and are posted on our club calendar and online a few weeks before the meeting.

The End of Season bike, hike and potluck ended up with warmth and sun and good attendance. Al and Jim led bike rides, Bernie led the hike and everyone brought great food to share. Thank you Jim for cooking, Carrie and Roman for all their help setting up, breaking down and most of all helping with the Coleman stoves, keeping food and drinks warm. A great big thank you to everyone that brought dishes to share, soups, chili, sausages, salads and fabulous desserts. Hugh, our great coffee maker, has the best propane coffee pot ever! Thank you to all others that pitched in to make our day such a success.
