What we're about

Anyone interested in bike riding is welcome to join this group. This group is for people age 40+ who love to ride, see the sites of Chicago and its suburbs, and socialize. Our group consists of casual and intermediate cyclists. We currently host at least 3 rides every week. We have Tuesday and Thursday after work rides and always have a Saturday ride. We also often do Sunday rides.

Past rides included trips to the Botanic Gardens, the Bahai Temple, Navy Pier, Promontory Point, Northerly Island, plus exploring the Greenbay Trail, North Branch Trail, Great Western Trail, 606 Trail, Des Plains River Trail, and the North Shore Trail.

Want to learn more about bikes, equipment, and clothing- come to one of our rides. Bring any type of bike and we'll help you get the most from it! We will bike together on area trails and roads throughout Chicago and the suburbs at a casual to moderate pace (10-16 mph) for 15-50 miles at a time. We start out at a slower pace and shorter distances at the beginning of the year and increase the distance and pace as we get more riding in. We also never leave anyone behind.

This year some of us are training to ride Pedal Across Wisconsin. This is the annual bike ride out of Madison, 350 miles in 7 days. They will be looking to ride a lot of miles between now and June 2. There may still be time to join this team if you are interested. Let's Ride!
