Ride Like An Egyptian

Image result for ride like an egyptian

Join us for a fun and enjoyable bike ride through DeKalb and Kane Counties and support the historic Egyptian Theatre at the same time. Your participation in “Ride Like An Egyptian” benefits the Egyptian Theatre, operated by the non-profit organization Preservation of the Egyptian Theatre, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The Egyptian Theatre is a fully restored 1929 Egyptian-themed art deco movie palace and vaudeville house.

The ride begins and ends at the Egyptian Theatre, so you will have the opportunity to explore this historic landmark. This bike ride offers four mix-n-match 25-mile loops. Loop 1 starts at the Egyptian Theatre (135 N. 2nd Street, DeKalb, IL) and goes east to Maple Park, IL. From the Maple Park central rest stop, you can ride any (or all) of three 25-mile loops before returning to the Egyptian Theatre. All participants will be provided with route maps and all routes will be marked with signs.

The ride utilizes a central rest stop for all routes.  The central rest stop is located in Maple Park.  It is indoors with air conditioning/heat and real restrooms.  We stock the rest stop with lots of snacks, fruit, water and Gatorade.
