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, as long as riders prescribe to safe practices such as: communicating about obstacles; maintaining gaps that are appropriate for the speed, terrain and weather conditions, etc.
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 or fat-tire bike, or at least some wide tires. i.e. There may be times on the damp, crushed limestone trails when a slim-tire road bike will be very difficult to ride.
No rider will ever be left behind. Having said that, please don't show up if your bike is not ready or you are not in athletic condition for this distance and pace. Note that 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 yet additional effort. ***THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER RIDE.*** We start in Villa Park but the route may vary from week-to-week. Please make sure that you follow the guidelines listed on our club website for safe riding if you are new to the EBC or the Hustle. Let's rock!

There is a cost to do the garden walk, and tickets must be purchased online in advance. Rain or shine, I will be visiting the gardens and biking to each of the locations. Afterwards, there is a faire at Wilder Park which is fun to explore and admire all the cool things we may not really need but nice to look at.

Feet of climb: 2,545
Themes: Air Force 75th Anniversary Celebration, Mile of Silence

Contact Laura Faxon at 630-450-6324 when you've registered to be added to the list of riders. We do not need to ride together but to get credit for the miles ridden, you must send me an email within two days after completing the ride that lists each day and the miles rode, and a line with the total miles ridden. If you are riding in a group then one person can submit the miles for everyone, please include their name and email address.

Overnight Town Info:
Riders reaching Ida Grove will be greeted by castles. The town isn't trying to keep feuding warlords — or cyclists — out. Byron Godbersen, founder of Ida Grove's Midwest Industries, liked castles and made sure castle-like features such as gates and turrets were incorporated into the designs of buildings around the city of 2,050, including his company's plant.

In addition to serving as an overnight town in 2006, Ida Grove, which bills itself as CastleTown, U.S.A., accommodated riders in 1977 and 1988, incorporating castle themes into its festivities.

The smallest overnight town on the route, population 1,590, Pocahontas is a first-time RAGBRAI host. It takes its name from the Native American woman, daughter of the Powhatan chief, whose much-romanticized involvement with English settlers in Jamestown, Virginia, inspired tall tales, a William Makepeace Thackeray poem and a Disney animated movie.
Riders will encounter a 25-foot-tall depiction of Pocahontas, standing next to a giant teepee in the city's Princess Park, as they pedal into town

Overnight Town Info:
Mason City, also an overnight town in 1985, is the largest community on this year's route.

Though hardly a metropolis, Mason City's downtown is home to two microbreweries, Mason City Brewing and Fat Hill Brewing, which hosted since-promoted ride director Dieter Drake's introduction to Iowa cyclists in 2019. That will likely be good news to riders wanting to quench their thirst after the 100-mile day.

The second-biggest city on the 2022 ride, Charles City has the potential to provide some outsize fun, particularly if the riders arrive on a hot day. It's known for its whitewater course on the Cedar River, which flows through the center of town, and hosts the annual Charles City Challenge kayaking competition. Some paddling, tubing and just plain splashing around will almost certainly be on tap for the sweaty travelers.

Riders also can visit the childhood home of the national women’s rights leader Carrie Chapman Catt, which is 3 miles southeast of Charles City. The city has had a lot of experience hosting RAGBRAI, serving as an overnight town in 1982, 1996, 2002, 2010, and 2017.

City Overnight Info:
The final day brings a ride through some of Iowa's finest scenery: the rugged karst topography of the state's slice of the Driftless Area. It also will be strenuous, with the most feet of climb for any day of the route. Fortunately, there will be plenty of descent, too, as the ride rolls down to the Mississippi River community of Lansing

We will have easy and moderate MTB rides and Fast and Slower Road rides to appeal to a wide range of club members. Steven Schoenfeld will lead a 55 mile Fast Road ride, Ed Gin will lead a 30-40 mile slower road ride, Pravin Patel will lead an intermediate MTB ride, George and Pussanee will lead an easier MTB ride. We will have Tacos from a local Authentic Mexican eatery, followed by a cool off swim in the Pastorino pool swim suit required. Feel free to bring soft drinks, adult beverages and a side dish to share if you like. Kids and non-riding spouses are encouraged to attend the Party. These parties are also a great way for new members to meet other club members, so come on out, don’t be shy. Some people swim and some people don’t, it’s not a requirement! Lunch from Henry’s Tacos is on the Pastorino’s and Ed Gin will have his famous Korean Kalbi (Galbi) Chicken. This event is a ton of fun and has something for everyone. If you can’t make the ride, come to the Picnic/Swim/Taco/Beer/Laughter event after, just plan to arrive after 1:15pm. All rides will depart at 9am, try to arrive my 8:30am and as it is a bit chaotic getting the 4 rides organized and there is a ton of pre ride socializing. Please register (it’s simple) so we can get a head count for food.

I will lead the traditional fast pool party ride which was developed by George Pastorino many years ago. It is a 55 Mile loop from the Pastorino home through Lemont and back. One rest stop about 2/3 of the way through the ride. Bring plenty of water, especially if it is hot and/or sunny. Lots of sprint sections with regroup points and several hill climbs. This is a challenging ride.

We will ride the intermediate mountain bike trails of the Palos FP out of the Pastorino’s on a pool party Sunday. Besides, the single tracks, we will ride some double tracks to access the Palos FP. This is not the beginner’s ride, intermediate MTB trail riding experience and solid bike handling skills are required. Bring a backpack with a water bladder and to carry snacks and flat repairs kit. I highly recommend knee/shin and elbow pads while eye protection is a must.

Please, plan to arrive by 8:30 for bike preparation and social greetings. You can stay for the food and a swim and share embellished bike stories among friends and fellow club members of different persuasion. Varied kinds of food will be offered, however, you can bring your own favorite dish and soft drinks.

I have been trying to make the Door County Century part of my end of summer routine for several years as…..

1. The food at the rest stops is of a high quality along with a full catered dinner and beer truck along w/music at the end of the ride,
2. The roads are well-marked,
3. The roads have very little traffic, and
4. The people of Door County are friendly.

Here’s where to sign up:

https://doorcountycentury.com/

Let me know by text or email if you are riding and we can meet the night before.
Will meet you at the start to sign the ride sheet. Text me mileage when completed.
