There is lots of bicycle- and music-related news to report this week.
First, the United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) Miller Lite Ride for the Arts will once again be held on Sunday, June 7th. This ride offers bicyclists a 15, 25, 50 or 75 mile course. I have done the 25, 50 and 75 mile rides in past years. I always look forward to this ride. The weather always seems to be nice this weekend and everyone seems to enjoy the ride.

The Garlic Mustard Pickers performed at the Lakefront Brewery on Sunday, May 17th. If you missed this event you have another opportunity to see this local Celtic band. The band will be performing on Saturday, May 30th, at the Carleton Grange Pub from 8:30 to 11:30 pm.
The Carleton Grange Pub is located at 3807 S. Packard Ave. I have eaten there several times and it is a great place (although, technically, it is in St. Francis). There is a great selection of sandwhiches, pizzas and excellent and unique beers. The restaurant has a site at www.carletongrange.com .
