This week's Blue Skies will be a bit slower and shorter for me, as I am looking for an easy spin to get my legs going for Steve's EBC Century on Saturday. I will hold the 15-17 rolling pace and do not intend to do the Munger Loop. Anyone who wishes to push harder or add Munger is welcome to join me and do so, and there are many good opportunities for optional sprints. ***Please note the 9AM start time.***

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.

We will ride the intermediate single tracks of the Palos FP at a medium pace. The trail side mid ride short break is after riding 10 miles. Please, bring water/snacks of your liking. I recommend elbow and knee/sheen pads and eye protection. Also, pack bug/insect spray. This is not a beginner’s/easy MTB ride.

A mountain bike with full suspension or a hard tail with 2.1” or wider tires is recommended. Eye protection is required while elbow and knee/shin pads are highly recommended.

I will try to avoid the more popular busy trails to avoid bikers and explore less frequently biked the Canal trails.

Willow Springs: Columbia Woods

More Info
Less Info
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. A member could even lead a Kayak/Canoe event right from the grove. Columbia Woods is the eastern trailhead for the Centennial Trail that connects to both the I and M Trail and Cal/Sag Trail/Tinley Creek Trail without going on roads. 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. Pravin, myself and others have many routes. Hikers can lead hikes at Palos. Ride leaders let's get some rides listed. Contact the ride leaders list above if you need a ride with GPS File or a cue sheet. Rides can start at any time that allows you to be back at the event at noon or shortly after. I also have routes from the location to Elmhurst if you want to ride to the event. We will cater food from a locally owned Willow Springs Deli on the club. Registration is required to get a headcount for food.

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

A slow roll ride around the perimeter of Chicago. Plan on all day and into the night. Many stops. Can bail out at any time via CTA. Lights are mandatory. Positive attitude also required. Meet at Buckingham Fountain at 8 AM, will actually roll at 9:00 AM. Hopefully done by 10 PM, May take longer.

The Best Ride of the Year!®
A daylong clockwise ride around Our Fair City. No registration, no support vehicles, no tyvek numbers, no team jerseys, no reason but for the ride!
We meet at Buckingham Fountain after 8am and roll at 9am, riding South until we run out of city, then West for a beer, then North for snacks, then East through some woods then back to the start again.
This is a moderately paced ride.
Someone will ride their fixie, but most folks use their commuters or touring bikes. If you ride several days a week, but have never done a full Century Ride, come on along, you'll do fine!
When you feel like you're done, you can always hop on the CTA or Metra and head back to the start or home. If you want to make it a full 100 miles, you can do a few laps around the fountain at the end until your odometer ticks over.
Make sure you have room to bring water and snacks and a spare tube or two.
We can handle minor mechanical issues, but make sure you give your ride a good tune-up first.
We won't drop you alone, but if we can't get you rolling we'll have to put you on the CTA.
There are multiple stops for food and such, most are cash-only.

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. 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.

Join me for the ride to Sam Gunda’s Memorial Lunch at a Hindu temple in Aurora, IL. Sam was the beloved member of the EBC who passed away last year. His family is hosting a memorial lunch to celebrate his life. We will stay for and hour, meet his family and have a lunch of southern Indian fare. The lunch could be spicy. My pace would be a bit slower 10-12 mph to accommodate wider range of riders.

If you are planning to join me, please, RSVP to Sam’s family by clicking this link: http://evite.me/TmdUM7SbEH or refer to George’s email a couple of days ago.
