Annual New Year's Day Ride - Cancelled due to extreme weather

Ride Cancelled (updated at noon 12/31/17)

Unfortunately the weather forecast has not changed and has been accurate the last couple of days.
The bitter wind chill numbers will stay put for awhile.
Happy New Year’s to all and looking forward to get some winter riding in soon.


Due to the extreme weather forecast of sub-zero temperatures and wind speeds in the teens, we are reviewing the feasibility of riding. Wind chill calculations put this at -20° to -30°F or even lower. Decision to be made by noon Sunday.
630-750-5915 if interested in taking a swing at this.
This would be a trail ride so MTB or Fat Bikes to ride on the packed snow are needed.

No Text = No Ride
. Check back for the status Sunday.

Let the tradition continue!
