Planned group ride from Kane County Government Center on trails/neighborhoods/paved roads to South Elgin for a distance of ~40 miles. There will be a planned water stop at mile 23.
Vast majority of route should be paved, though there may be a few spots that are limestone/dirt. Trail/cross/gravel bikes suggested though road bikes with wide tires should be OK.
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 Del Barrio Mezcaleria, 507 S 3rd Street, Geneva, IL 60134.
Hope to see you there!
