*** Shortened, road-version this week, due to flooding.***
Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38988065

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!

This road ride will follow Isaac's classic Blue Skies route from Lombard to St. Charles (Panera), including the Munger Loop. I expect to hold the upper end of the posted rolling speed, with optional (read: likely) 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. Ample regroup opportunities. No one will be dropped.

With Nick and Dave not available, I will aim to keep this ride fast, but mid-paced between the two group speeds, so expect a rolling target of 19 on flats with sprints and regroups to get the legs working on long segments.

If someone wants to lead a B group ride, LMK and I will run this ride at faster speed for As, but we can coordinate a route, in case anyone wants to drop back.

Route will be posted via RideWithGPS Sat night, based on expected wind. With current NW forecast, thinking of ride out to Munger loop.

If you haven't ridden much or are starting out this season, this is a ride you'll enjoy. There has been Osprey and Eagle sightings on this route as of late and if lucky?

Going to try to squeeze one in to a spotty forecast. If roads are damp at start time, but morning forecast is clear, we will ride at a moderated pace. If the afternoon rain forecast creeps into the morning, we will shorten the route. Watch for cancellation by 7:00.

This road ride will follow Isaac's classic Blue Skies route from Lombard to St. Charles (Panera), including the Munger Loop. I expect to hold the upper end of the posted rolling speed, with optional (read: likely) 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. Ample regroup opportunities. No one will be dropped.

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