Infamous Fox River Bike Trail Ride

  • to
  • Mount St. Mary's Park

    80 Prairie St, St. Charles, IL (map)

    41.909256 -88.312401

  • I will be in my full fledged ASU gear and will be hard to miss. Feel free to invite anyone.
  • We'll ride on the Fox River Bike Trail at an average pace of 14-16 mph to the Two Brothers Roundhouse restaurant and microbrewery.  This ride is all paved trails, but for two blocks on Broadway in Aurora and the possibility of a 100-foot section of trail that may be undergoing reconstruction near Aurora.

    We will meet at Mount St. Mary's Park around 10 AM, and after the traditional signing of the waivers, filling of the tires, and getting to know each other, head south to lunch around 10:10 or so.  The first mile or two at both ends will be a bit slower as people warm up, then the faster group will begin to stretch their legs.

    OPTIONAL:  Dan: and possibly Steve and David will do a longer ride leaving from Elgin around 9 AM, but you'd have to join us at the Blue Box Cafe for breakfast at 8 if you wanted to be sure of meeting up with us there.  We'll be riding a total of 46.4 miles from Elgin.  PLEASE MESSAGE DAN IF YOU DESIRE TO ATTEND THE LONGER RIDE SESSION SO WE CAN HAVE AN ACCURATE HEADCOUNT.  THIS MAY BE CANCELLED IF NOT ENOUGH RIDERS ELECT TO PARTICIPATE SO PLEASE ADVISE AS TO WHETHER YOU WILL BE ATTENDING ASAP.  

    All riders must wear a helmet and sign a waiver.  It's also expected that you'll bring extra tubes, water bottles, a cell phone, identification, money for lunch, and it's a good idea to be prepared with sunscreen and bug spray.
