Announcing a new Meetup for NW Burbs Camping and Adventure Meetup Group!
What: Bi-weekly Thursday Night Fun Ride ~ Elgin Fox River Trail
When: Thursday, May 27,[masked]:45 PM
Where: Elgin (Trailhead TBD)
Join us on our Thursday night bike rides!
These meetups are "ride at your own pace." It's great for cyclists of all levels, from beginners to Lance Armstrong come one, come all. Please feel comfortable with following map directions, in case you get split up from the group. We will start together, and wait at the end until everyone has completed! After our ride we can catch a cold drink and snack at the local scene.
We will hit the trail promptly at 6p so please try to be here by 5:45p.
I will post the route every other week, with extra information about meeting location or other necessary equipment. I will try to have maps and route directions at the beginning of each ride.
This weeks ride: Let's take a spin along the Fox River!
