spokesmortgageThis ride is a nice straight ride that starts from the casino in Elgin and goes north to some convenience store next to the airport at Lake in the Hills.  Why did it earn it's name?  One of our riders, "Mary", got a flat tire half way through the ride.  How many riders did it take to help "Mary" change her tire?  If Father Kevin joined (and had his collection plate) and collected $1 from each helper, the mortgage would have been paid!  (Story slightly stretched but it caught your attention!)  And no, "Mary" was not left behind.  We got her safely back to her car after re-inflating her tire every two miles (that is not a hyperbole)!
