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. 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 13-15 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!

*** I have added the option of an 8am start for those that want to ride an extra hour before we are back for the normal start at 9 am. ***
This is absolutely one of the EBC historic, signature rides. Authored by Ride Leader, Isaac Samayoa, years ago, it is a weekly tradition of exertion and camaraderie. There is even free, on-the-fly training in group riding as might be seen on other EBC classics.
We will start in Lombard from the traditional location, and proceed to the Panera Bread in St. Charles by way of the Munger loop. I have called the Panera, who has maintained curbside service throughout the pandemic, and they now have their bathrooms open. We may only allow 10 of our group at a time in the building for either bathrooms or food. If we space ourselves apart, the numbers will probably make no difference.
This is a ride for the faster road riders. Although we will take care of all riders who join, please make sure that you are up to a consistent pace of 17 or 18 mph, and much faster in certain parts.
For this week, take heat precautions. The Panera will have water (Yay!).
Typically this ride generally breaks into a very fast 20+ mph "A" group and an 18 mph "B" group.
If you want to do this route and distance, but are not at this level of speed, there is usually what I call a "C" group that rides this same route at the same time. They will have a ride listed on our calendar. Note that the "C" group ride is nothing to sneeze at either and will be very taxing in the forecast heat.
If you are up to all of this, then this is a wonderfully varied course that will give you enough of a workout to keep you relaxed during the fireworks for Independence Day. See you there.

Other rest stops may be open but no guarantees. It will be hot so bring plenty of water or other drinks. We will stick to the posted pace. If you wish to go faster, feel free to join the other group that starts at the same time.

Come join us for a slower ride along Des Plaines River Trail and Greenway. We will stop many times by the river to explore. Not a good ride if you have time restraints or want to get from point A to point B the fastest way possible way. We will try to stop for lunch but no guarantees as this is out first time riding the trail. Surface is gravel and non technical so any bike with 32 mm or larger tires will work. Bring enough food and water for the entire day. Bring a mask and bug spray. The trail is a natural oasis and is a long, lush Greenway that has scenic views. This is a scouting ride and anything can happen including more or less miles and getting lost. Be prepared. Back by 3:30pm...unless we are not. No whining of any nature even if we are trampled by the massive Titanosaur Argentinosaurus Huinculensis.

According to Maine Farmer‘s almanac, the first full Moon of summer was called The Buck Moon by Algonquin tribes. Early summer is normally when the new antlers of buck deer push out of their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. The 1st moon is also called Thunder Moon because of early summer‘s frequent thunderstorms.
However, EBC is welcome to howl at the moon as we approach the ski hill at Eldridge Park. Come join me for a slow social ride around Elmhurst on a warm summer‘s night, celebrating the end of the 4th of July weekend and of course, the full moon.
We will follow social distancing and mask wearing guidelines. Make sure you have lights on your bike, front and back.

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 13-15 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!
