Where there is not a miles per hour to describe the pace of a ride, please use the following as a guide:
8-10 = very slow  *   10-12 = slow  *   12-14 = moderate  *   14-16 = medium  *   16-18 = fast  *   18-20+ = very fast
 

The time of the event shown in the calendar above is the actual departure time. Please allow time for bicycle assembly and inspection, filling of water bottles, inflating tires, etc. prior to departure. The advertised pace will be at the discretion of the ride leader to allow for resistance to the wind and terrain. The pace is considered to be the maximum speed attained on a level road without appreciable headwind or tailwind. Please select the ride that best fits your ability. Know for yourself whether you are comfortable to sustain the pace and finish the advertised distance.

Riders must wear helmets on every ride.
Illinois Vehicle Code prohibits the use of headphones while bicycling and headphones are not allowed on EBC rides.

Elmhurst Bicycle Club Release and Liability Waiver

Guests of the EBC (which term includes all non-members of EBC) who wish to participate in any EBC bicycle ride must sign the equivalent release and liability waiver contained on the EBC Ride Sheet before the ride starts. Any guest refusing to sign the release and liability waiver may not participate in the ride. Should the ride continue, however, with the participation of the non-signing guest, the ride will no longer be considered to be an EBC sponsored or sanctioned ride.
