Events We Ride
Individually, we take on rides from Colorado's Triple Bypass to climbs in the French Alps to local criteriums, sanctioned either by American Bicycle Racing or USA Cycling. We ride the events listed below more or less as a club. We also organize a spring pilgrimage to North Georgia, tackling climbs featured in the Six Gap Century and the old Tour of Georgia.
Grand Fondo New York — Sunday, May 15, 2022. An intense, European-style fondo for lovers of green kits.
Dairyland Dare — Saturday, Aug. 6, 2022. Hilly, bucolic Wisconsin splendor in serving sizes from 50k to 200k.
Bike the Drive — Sunday, Sept. 4, 2022. DuSable Lake Shore Drive as it was meant to be. Details below.
The 55-mile option: Meet us at the Pickwick, time TBD, for a 12-mile route along Bryn Mawr to enter Lake Shore Drive at Hollywood. LSD itself is a 30-mile loop. We rest halfway, at Museum of Science & Industry. MSI also has a T-shirt pickup; rubber bands will help fit that shirt into a jersey pocket. Round trip ~55 miles. "B" pace. Registration is $55, or $50 with code Postcard5, which may be combined with an Active Transportation Alliance membership for further discount. • For a 30-mile ride, join us at St Andrew Greek Orthodox Church, 5649 N Sheridan Rd, just before we enter LSD. Time TBD. • Driving downtown to ride with the kids, or on your own? Try Grant Park South garage; ample volunteers guide cyclists riding up the garage ramp onto Lake Shore Drive.

North Shore Century — Sunday, Sept. 18, 2022. Pay to ride our usual roads.... but in support a good cause!
