More Info
Less Info
This is an highly social, evening ride that has been a Spring, Summer and Fall tradition since August, 2015, ...always rolling at the speed-of-fun. We ride as a team and enthusiastically encourage communication, conversation and laughter. You must have a bike that is trail-ready and has headlights and tail lights. Avoid using retina-burning tail lights, and we try to douse headlights when passing pedestrians and other riders as we ride into growing darkness. We suggest a mountain bike, fat-tire bike, or at least some wide tires. i.e. There may be times on the crushed limestone trails, depending on the weather, where a road bike will not cut it. No rider will ever be left behind. (We are now using 3 walkie-talkie's for the Ride Leaders for added safety.) Having said that though, please don't show up if your bike is not ready or you are not in athletic condition for this distance and pace*. {*NOTE: 10-12 mph on a trail may take the same effort as 13-16 mph on a road, using a road bike. Riding a heavy, fat bike or mountain bike requires even more effort. This is not a beginner ride.} We start in Villa Park but the route may vary from week-to-week. Please make sure you have followed the guidelines listed elsewhere on our club's website for safe riding if you are new to the EBC or the Hustle. Let's rock!

This location is in the beautiful Cook County Forest Preserves and right on the Desplaines River. The location was chosen not only for it's great brick shelter and riverside location but also for it's fabulous access to road, trail and singletrack MTB rides and hikes.

Rides for 10 to 60 miles can be led all on paved trails. The location gives direct access to the Burr Ride rollers and there are road routes from 20 to 60 miles that can start there. Ron, myself, Vince, Ed and many others have routes from the location. Single track mountain bikers can ride over the bridge and have direct access to all of Palos single track in 3 minutes.

We will ride easy intermediate trails and few miles of the double tracks of the Palos FP. The intended route has a couple of stream dips which are easily negotiable. The riders may choose to walk their bikes if they wish. This is not a beginner’s MTB ride. Some single track riding experience is necessary. However, if you have ridden George’s easy MTB rides you would be fine on this ride. A fat tire/plus size or a hard trail or full suspension MTB is most appropriate.

New club members along with long time members are welcome!

We will take a short trail side break after riding 7-8 miles. Please, bring enough water/snacks for the entire ride and dress for the day’s weather. A backpack with a bladder is helpful to carry essentials such as flat tire repairs kit, food, extra gloves etc. Consider arriving quarter hour earlier than the stated start time to allow for the bike preparation and social greetings.

Please, drive to the end of the Wolf Road Woods parking lot for parking spots. Call or text me if you are having trouble finding parking.

Want to check the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim hike off your Bucket List. Hike the majestic rim to rim from North Kaibab Trail on the North Rim to the Bright Angel Trail on the South Rim. It will be a comfortable, picturesque hike down to historic Phantom Ranch for lunch, and then he final push. It is not a race, and no one will be left behind. Must reserve early (now). Contact me directly for information. Jose Sosa: 630 362-8723

Additional information: This is an strenuous event, and if you are not physically and mentally prepared for his hike do take a pass. It is a 24 mile hike across rugged terrain in the Grand Canyon National Park. You will descend 14.3 miles/6000 feet to the bottom (Phantom Ranch), then climb 9.6 miles/4500 feet to the South Rim. The hike across the Grand Canyon takes an average of 10.5 hours. There are many web sites that describe the rim to rim hike and Grand Canyon National Park. See www.nationalparks.org for additional information.

I will be leading several (weekly) training sessions at Swallow Cliff-North near Palos Park starting in the spring. It will include a combination of stairs and hiking. Hiking boots and Ruck (back pack) are recommended. Water and nourishment is required. Directions and information about Swallow Cliff can be found at www.fpdcc.com. Training on your own during the week is essential, whether it includes biking, hiking (walking), running, swimming, weight training, etc. is up to you. If I feel that you did not train properly I will kindly recommend that you excuse yourself from this hike. Keep in mind that rescues are very expensive, and deaths in the canyon can happen to those who are not properly trained.

Equipment needed for the hike should fit in a medium size back pack. I will go over essential equipment as we train.

Again, contact me directly for additional information, and if you have any questions. Jose‘ A Sosa: 630 362-8723
