They’re boundaries are all rail lines and the railroads, commercial and commuter, served to be instrumental in the formation and history of these communities. Hermosa is Chicago Community Area #20 and is located 6 miles northwest of The Loop. The area was first settled in modern history by Scottish immigrants in the 1880s and soon Scandinavian and German settlers. The railroads were principally responsible for the area's settlement and growth, and serve today as the majority of its borders. Belmont-Cragin is Chicago Community Area #19 and is about 8 miles northwest of the Loop. The first business to open up in the area was George Merrill’s saloon in 1835 near Grand and Armitage. Soon they built railroads and companies to locate along the rails, added rail stops, workers and residents and development and the growth of a community surrounded completely by railroads. Both areas have their share of spectacular commercial, religious and institutional buildings as well as a glorious stock of residential homes and flats, where the ordinary home is clearly special. Come explore the two communities of Belmont-Cragin and Hermosa. Bring your bike and a helmet and we’ll provide a pleasant late-summer ride learning from and enjoying Chicago’s northwest side. Buy online and save a buck for the ride or three bucks for the ride and poster.

This is an Axeltree event, out of North Central Cyclery: From the dawn of mankind, the transition from summer to fall has been a special time for cyclists. Some of the earliest cave paintings show primitive men and women undergoing a critical, seasonal transition in training. You see, in primitive days, these pre-civilized cave-people would ride their road bikes after work during the summer, when the sky was illuminated from the great glowing ball of fire. But as the days progressed towards fall, the great ball of fire started to hang around less and less. Eventually, it got dark early enough that they couldn’t ride road bikes after work. They had to start riding gravel. The earliest adopters of gravel did things like ride mountain bikes, or road bikes with fatter tires on them. These were heady times. They hoped that the great ball of fire would return the following spring, and thus they would gather in a mass-ritual of appreciation for the sun, and the darkness. They would share in the social experience that was gravel-grinding. While some archaeologists and historians disagree, there is evidence to suggest that these early cycling group rides were the foundation for a fundamental shift in human existence, from solitary individuals to small social groups that were the precursors for society and civilization. Here at Axletree, we’re huge suckers for history. And thus, we are honoring the prehistoric roots of gravel cycling. –Axeltree website, North Central Cyclery www.rideaxeltree.com www.northcentralcyclery.com Come join Elmhurst Cycling Club’s Gravel Grinding Team in our first official nighttime gravel grinder. This is a FULLY SELF SUPPORTED event; there is no SAG or on-course rider support. This will be a challenging ride. To participate in the event you will need: (1) bike suitable for 50+miles on gravel (loose gravel and B-roads, at night) which could be a gravel bike, a mountain bike, a touring bike with big tires, a fat bike, a hybrid. A road bike with 23c tires is not recommended; (2) Helmet; (3) Headlight, it must be able to last 5 hours. (4) Taillight, it must be able to last 5 hours. (5) Tools, tubes, CO2; (6) Food and hydration for 50+ miles; (7) a strong desire to be adventurous riding as a team in the moonlight. After the ride, we will be having a post ride celebration of gravel breakfast (location and details TBD.) Please contact me via e-mail if you are interested in participating in this event as future e-mails will be sent to a private e-mail group of those interested in this unique and exciting experience. Additionally, if you have any questions about your ability to participate in this event, please contact me. Again, this will be a challenging ride. This is loose gravel on the B-roads of DeKalb, not limestone gravel of the Prairie Path or Great Western Trail. 14-16 mph.
