This is an 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. You must have a bike that is trail-ready and has headlights and tail lights. Avoid using retina-burning tail lights, and we try to douse headlights when passing pedestrians and other riders as we ride into growing darkness. We suggest a mountain bike, fat-tire bike, or at least some wide tires. i.e. There may be times on the crushed limestone trails, depending on the weather, where a road bike will not cut it. No rider will ever be left behind. (We are now using 3 walkie-talkie‘s for the Ride Leaders for added safety.) Having said that though, please don‘t show up if your bike is not ready or you are not in athletic condition for this distance and pace. {*NOTE: 10-12 mph on a trail may take the same effort as 13-16 mph on a road, using a road bike. Riding a heavy fat bike or mountain bike requires even still more effort. This is not a beginner ride.} We start in Villa Park but the route may vary from week-to-week. For this pandemic year, we will try to find routes with bathrooms or port-a-potties. (Check the ListServer email before the ride. There has usually been an open bathroom at the ride start.) Please make sure you have followed the guidelines listed elsewhere on our club‘s website for safe riding if you are new to the EBC or the Hustle. Let‘s rock!

This year we are going to combine the EBC picnic and the annual awards ceremony for last year’s individual achievements. Normally we hold the awards ceremony indoors in the Spring. But this year we are going to take advantage of an outdoor venue to have a safer, socially distanced gathering of our members. Please register for the picnic by clicking on the Register link to on the listing. Due to the phase 4 restrictions, we will limit the picnic to 50 registrants.

A few notes about this year’s picnic:
1.We are still working on food catering, but will look for an option that is not a typical buffet style (either with a server or individually wrapped items).
2.Feel free to bring your own chairs so we can spread out on the lawn with social distancing.
3.As customary, we will look to ride leaders to post rides for the morning to end around the time of the picnic start time.
4.The main activity will be the awards ceremony which will honor members for their 2019 club participation and involve the handout of T-shirts, patches and ride-leader jerseys.
5.Masks or social distancing is required based on health guidelines. It will be up to each individual to decide how to closely to approach others and when to wear a mask.
6.The picnic is contingent on our region staying in phase 4. If we cannot hold a 50 person gathering due to health restrictions, this event will be canceled.

Come join Pussanee and I for a nice Paddle on The Kishwaukee River. We have not been on the river but friends of ours like it a lot. Please call and reserve a boat early as last week several people could not get boats. Tandem canoes and Kayaks are $60.00 Single Kayaks are $40.00 includes life vest and paddle. Please register so we know who is coming. River is good for beginners. Call 815-968-0711 and tell them you want the 10am trip. We meet at the takeout and shuttles to the put in so when we are done we are at the cars. Cash Only. We will go rain or shine unless they cancel due to lighting or storms. We will stop for lunch so bring a sandwich and enough water for the trip. This is from the website: The "Kish" is rated as a Class A river by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. This means it has a significant number of species of fish that are silt intolerant. It is very nice to be on a river with clean water. If you are a fishing enthusiast, you are apt to catch smallmouth bass, crappie, catfish, walleye and an occasional northern pike. You are invited to bring a pole if you would like. Catch and release is appreciated though! The "Kish" has many opportunities to see a variety of wildlife along its shores and in its waters. You may see bald eagles, blue herons, otters, and soft shelled turtles during your adventure. If you especially enjoy watching the birds, this is the place to be. Of the 299 species of birds that regularly occur in Illinois, 262 can be found among its trees and along its shores. There are some sandbars that you can land at to take a break during your trip. The Espensheid Memorial Forest Preserve and the Kishwaukee River Forest Preserve are also a nice place to stop at to have a picnic or use their outhouse facilities.

Due to COVID-19 Project Mobility has made the decision to transition the 8th Annual Everybody Rides event to a virtual bike ride for 2020. The safety of the riders, volunteers, staff, and everyone involved is our number one priority. While this is an unexpected twist getting out and riding while raising awareness and funds for Project Mobility are still key elements of Everybody Rides. COVID-19 won‘t stop us from hosting the event!
Riders can ride whenever and wherever between the week of August 23rd - August 30th. You select the distance you would like to ride - 10, 29, 47, 62 miles or form a team and do The CHALLENGE.
People of all ages and abilities are welcome and encouraged to join. Register for the event individually or form a team. Don‘t forget to start fundraising today!
All proceeds benefit Project Mobility‘s mission to bring adaptive cycling opportunities to the lives of children, adults, and wounded service members with emotional and physical challenges. Check List Serv for more details and links

This is an 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. You must have a bike that is trail-ready and has headlights and tail lights. Avoid using retina-burning tail lights, and we try to douse headlights when passing pedestrians and other riders as we ride into growing darkness. We suggest a mountain bike, fat-tire bike, or at least some wide tires. i.e. There may be times on the crushed limestone trails, depending on the weather, where a road bike will not cut it. No rider will ever be left behind. (We are now using 3 walkie-talkie‘s for the Ride Leaders for added safety.) Having said that though, please don‘t show up if your bike is not ready or you are not in athletic condition for this distance and pace. {*NOTE: 10-12 mph on a trail may take the same effort as 13-16 mph on a road, using a road bike. Riding a heavy fat bike or mountain bike requires even still more effort. This is not a beginner ride.} We start in Villa Park but the route may vary from week-to-week. For this pandemic year, we will try to find routes with bathrooms or port-a-potties. (Check the ListServer email before the ride. There has usually been an open bathroom at the ride start.) Please make sure you have followed the guidelines listed elsewhere on our club‘s website for safe riding if you are new to the EBC or the Hustle. Let‘s rock!
