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 road ride will follow Isaac's classic Blue Skies route from Lombard to St. Charles, including the Munger Loop. I expect to hold the upper end of the posted rolling speed, with optional sprints, but anyone who knows the route is free to take a faster group off the front or bypass the Munger Loop. We will face some hills, rollers, and open road with narrow shoulders, so a road bike and some road riding experience is highly recommended. No one will be dropped.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

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
