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!
