Fill out this if interested.

I’m interested. When and where this summer? I can’t access your Google form @MrHappy

I’m new to the electric skateboards community and I notice that you are in the orland park area and so am I we should go for a ride sometime when my build is complete and do you know any spots in the area that sell lipo battery or someone that makes there own

Where from Chicago are ya’ll?

Im free any thursday-saturday. Im out in the suburbs and go to school at IIT on 31st and state.
(fixed the google form)

I live in Hinsdale and work downtown near Willis tower. Also if anyone is looking for homemade LiPos, check out They have a good selection, but they’re a bit expensive. I’m free all day Fridays and Sundays for a meetup, possibly Grant Park or nearby

Don’t know if you guys are still riding, but I’m in the process of making an esk8. I live in Lincoln Park.

We may go on a ride on Friday if you’re down

@wafflejock lives around Chi-Town I think, maybe he would be down for a ride?

Thanks for looping me into the thread Greco, and yah I’m in Oak Park so a 20min train ride from downtown so would be good to know when people are meeting up. Unfortunately, weather has started to go south so looking at balaclavas and other ways to cover any exposed skin, but anyhow always down for cruising around if I have free time and a charged board.

Great! Yea @MrHappy and I are thinking of a ride on Friday if youre down. Maybe around 5pm?


Hey yeah possibly looks like 70% chance of 1" of snow Friday night right now but who knows that might change in the next day. Where do you planning on riding?

Yeah, if it’s not snowing, it’s going to be a great ride.

Also, any of you chicago people, join this group: There are weekly Group Rides.

Haven’t finished my board yet, but when I do I will be riding with you guys. Also, can any of you Chicago locals possibly meet up and help me program my vesc? I’ve watched all the youtube videos, but it’s still confusing. Not the best with that type of stuff.

Totally man I live by grant park you can stop by any week day usually.

Agreed my 4wd board is not ready yet so no snow for me

@MrHappy @wafflejock Looks like it us on friday if it does snow. Any ideas for routes? Im thinking at least 15miles We can start at IIT or Grant park

I’m down for wherever, LSP is always my go-to.

Sweet. I live in Lincoln Park and go to the DePaul business school in the loop right by there. That’s perfect. I’ll stop by after class once I get back from the holidays.

Okay cool Are you down for the Friday ride?
