Planned group trail ride from Kane County Government Center on trails/neighborhoods/paved & gravel roads for a distance of ~38 miles. There will be a planned water stop en route.
Because of the mixed surfaces anticipated, trail/cross/gravel bikes recommended, though road bikes should be OK. We may have to deal with potential soft spots on trails/roads.
This is a NO DROP RIDE at expected pace of 12-14 mph. Accordion riding expected (riders will separate and regroup (at safe distance) at various points). Strongly suggest you have a map/cue sheet of the route and/or loaded on your GPS/phone.
Rear lights required. Front lights and high-visibility apparel strongly recommended to enhance personal safety.
Safety is our top priority! Please be familiar with our safety protocols and cycling rules.
Please bring a change of clothes as many of us will plan post-ride meal and rehydration at The Burger Local, 577 S 3rd Street, Geneva, IL.
Hope to see you there!
