Our President's Message

Photo sample I wanted to take this opportunity to wish every EBC member and their families a very Happy New Year. Whatever your 2018 cycling goals are, The Elmhurst Bike Club can help you obtain them. We have rides at every speed level and on every surface…road, trail, path and single track mountain biking.

There is no off season in EBC and the outdoor riding will continue all winter long. We also offer winter hiking, snowshoeing and cross country skiing all winter long so you can have fun keeping in shape for spring. If you have not tried these winter sports, EBC can help you learn quickly and teach you to enjoy them with friends.

Finally, I want to say how much gratitude I have to be the leader of this exceptional organization, I am humbled to be your President once again.

Happy New Year EBC!

George Pastorino                                                                      

2017 EBC Christmas Party

This year's EBC Christmas party was held at Angelo's Ristorante, in Elmhurst for the first time. We had one of the largest attendance in the history of EBC!  Despite the cozy setting, Angelo's menu seemed to satisfy many appetites, and all club members enjoyed visiting with friends they haven't seen in awhile. A huge Thanks to Kim Messina and Judy Mikesell for organizing a great Party! Thanks also to Bob and Lorna of J and R for donating five $25.00 gift certificates as door prizes.
