Come ride at your pace, as many loops as you would like at Waterfall Glen Nature Preserve in Darien. Terrain is mixed terrain/gravel, bring whatever bike you would feel comfortable on. This is NOT a road/paved ride so you are aware. This means the terrain is limestone gravel just like the terrain on the Illinois Prairie Path, Great Western Trail and Springbrook Prairie in Naperville. Meet by the bathrooms building and beginning of the trailhead in the Main Parking lot 5 minutes before the ride starts. More details on the site/location here: https://www.dupageforest.org/places-to-go/forest-preserves/waterfall-glen One full loop is 9.5 miles with 421 feet of elevation gain (44 feet per mile of elevation gain). You can do a ¼,½ loop, 1 full loop, 2 loops, 3 or 4 in the time frame. We typically mix up the loops to do clockwise and then counterclockwise but you can do what you want to do. This is YOUR RIDE, you whatever distance at your own pace and what is most comfortable to you, in whatever time frame you would like to ride. Please text or email the Ride Leader at the conclusion of your ride for mileage credit. Motion and nature is so good for ‘da heart + soul!

This is a highly social, evening ride that has been a Spring, Summer and Fall tradition since August, 2015, always rolling at the speed-of-fun. :-) We ride as a team and enthusiastically encourage communication, conversation and laughter, as long as riders prescribe to safe practices such as: communicating about obstacles; and maintaining gaps that are appropriate for the speed, terrain and weather conditions. Your bike must have headlights and tail lights. Avoid using retina-burning, overly-bright and strobing lights since we ride trails as a tight pack and are usually separated from car and truck traffic. We try to courteously douse headlights when passing pedestrians and fellow riders as we ride into growing darkness. This ride is often best suited for mountain or fat-tire bikes when riding our crushed limestone routes, but also, quite often the weather and trail conditions make this event viable for most any type of bike. No rider will ever be left behind. We have several bona fide EBC Ride Leaders attending this ride for extra safety. Having said that, please don‘t show up if your bike is not ready or you are not in athletic condition for this distance and pace. Note that 10-12 mph on a trail may take the same effort as 13-16 mph on a road; ...and riding a heavy, fat or mountain bike requires yet additional effort. Our routes vary from one week to the next. Look for route information on our e-mail list server each week before the ride. Let‘s rock!

Join me for a road ride from Lombard to St. Charles, which will feature a newly-resurfaced Crescent Boulevard for your sprinting pleasure. Our midpoint rest stop will be at Panera in St. Charles.

Others are always free to bypass or shorten the loop. We will face some hills, rollers, and open road with narrow shoulders, so a road bike and some road riding experience is highly recommended. Ample regroup opportunities. No one will be dropped. Please don‘t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/43898989

We will have easy and moderate MTB rides and Fast and Slower Road/Trail rides to appeal to a wide range of club members. Ron Richards will lead a 55 mile Fast Road ride, Ed Gin will lead a 30-40 mile slower road/trail ride, Pravin Patel will lead an intermediate MTB ride, George and Consigliere Baltimore Ortega will lead an easier MTB ride that Pussanee will sweep. We will have a variety of really good food catered from Spring Forest. Lunch will be followed by a cool off swim in the Pastorino pool, swim suit required. Feel free to bring soft drinks, adult beverages and a side dish to share if you like. Kids and non-riding spouses are encouraged to attend the Party. These parties are also a great way for new members to meet other club members, so come on out, don’t be shy. Some people swim and some people don’t, it’s not a requirement! Lunch from Spring Forest is on the Pastorinos and Ed Gin will have his famous Korean Kalbi (Galbi) Chicken. This event is a ton of fun and has something for everyone. If you can’t make the ride, come to the Picnic/Swim/Food/Beer/Laughter event after, just plan to arrive after 1:15pm. All rides will depart at 9am, try to arrive my 8:30 am and as it is a bit chaotic getting the 4 rides organized and there is a ton of pre-ride socializing. Please register (it’s simple) so we can get a headcount for food.

Baltimore and I will lead an easier mountain bike ride at a slower pace. We will ride some of Palos‘s easier and nicest single track. Great Forest views. Mountain bike required. Bring plenty of water and snacks. Pussanee will sweep and no one left behind. Not a beginner ride, some singletrack skills are needed. Body armor optional and eyewear required. Please note that all pedal assist and throttle E bikes regardless of class are not allowed on any single track at Palos Forest Preserves. This is by order of The Forest Preserve District of Cook County which is the Land Manager with jurisdiction over the entire trail System and has nothing to do with EBC or the ride leader.

I will lead the traditional fast pool party ride developed by George Pastorino many years ago. It is a 53-mile loop from the Pastorino home through Lemont and back. There is one rest stop about 2/3 of the way through the ride at a gas station. Bring plenty of water, especially if it is hot and sunny. There are lots of sprint sections with regroup points and several hill climbs. This is a challenging ride. Here is the route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/43581875

This is a highly social, evening ride that has been a Spring, Summer and Fall tradition since August, 2015, always rolling at the speed-of-fun. :-) We ride as a team and enthusiastically encourage communication, conversation and laughter, as long as riders prescribe to safe practices such as: communicating about obstacles; and maintaining gaps that are appropriate for the speed, terrain and weather conditions. Your bike must have headlights and tail lights. Avoid using retina-burning, overly-bright and strobing lights since we ride trails as a tight pack and are usually separated from car and truck traffic. We try to courteously douse headlights when passing pedestrians and fellow riders as we ride into growing darkness. This ride is often best suited for mountain or fat-tire bikes when riding our crushed limestone routes, but also, quite often the weather and trail conditions make this event viable for most any type of bike. No rider will ever be left behind. We have several bona fide EBC Ride Leaders attending this ride for extra safety. Having said that, please don‘t show up if your bike is not ready or you are not in athletic condition for this distance and pace. Note that 10-12 mph on a trail may take the same effort as 13-16 mph on a road; ...and riding a heavy, fat or mountain bike requires yet additional effort. Our routes vary from one week to the next. Look for route information on our e-mail list server each week before the ride. Let‘s rock!
