What we're about

Join us in riding the unpaved trails at Deer Grove Forest Preserve in Palatine. This is like mountain biking without the mountains. There are plenty of hills, which makes for great exercise. This is mostly non-technical riding but there are areas that you have to pay attention to what you are doing. The trails are crushed limestone and some singletrack dirt trails. The typical ride will be about 1.5-2 hours and about 10 miles. This is a great ride thru beautiful forest but without the technical challenges of Palos or Kettle. Great for people who love to "mountain bike" but don't want to or don't have the skills to ride those more difficult trails.
