This is a beautiful ride put on by the Starved Rock Cycling Club. It gives you a 24, 42, 63, or 103 mileage option on lightly travels roads or you can mountain bike on the I & M Canal Path. Registration is $20.00 before September 18 and $25.00 after. You can get a link to registration through the website: http://www.starvedrockcycling.com/pprpage.htm
This includes fully stocked rest stops along with showers and pumpkin pie at the end. The route is very well marked and SAG support is available. Helmets are required on this ride.
Registration opens at 7:00 am. I am planning to get there at 7. We will meet outside the main door of the YMCA. I will have my black and blue Marin road bike. I will be wearing my Metallica St. Anger jersey but I might have a windblocker depending on weather. I will email everyone that has RSVPed yes the day before with my cell phone number so you can reach me if you can't find the group or need directions. This is a beautiful ride I did last year and you can't go wrong with pumpkin pie, either.
