its back. The wednesday night training ride is back for another year of fast road training. We will continue with the evolved standard route from 2015.

So join us for a fast-paced training ride aimed at increasing your speed and improving your group riding skills. Practice rotating pace lines, close proximity riding and advanced bike handling while building race pace fitness.  Ride paces range from 18-22 warm-up, 25+ for extended periods with planned leadouts for sprints; re-grouping occurs after all sprints.

Due to the need to ride in a tight pack, the fast pace and training specific nature of this ride, use of traditional style road bikes is strongly recommended. Recumbent, hybrid and mountain bikes will not be allowed, time-trial handle bars are discouraged.  A certain level of experience and fitness is expected. The actual pace of the ride will be determined by the ride participants.

Heres the route we take:

https://www.strava.com/routes/4134946

This is not a no drop ride, but a range of abilities is expected (and welcomed). After a 5 mile warm up the pace will heat up and the group may fragment, chase groups will form allowing riders to continue riding together. The ride always stops for red lights and all or some of the ride will always stop to assist you with mechanical problems&punctures. Please bring tools and the ability to fix a puncture.

The ride completes at PKs Pantry convenience store close to the start point (<0.5 mile) with enough room in its car park for a large group to hang for a recovery drink and socializing with your fellow rider.

Lights are required by all in april&sept, and recommended year round if you ride home any distance after the route. Ride ends by 8:00pm if there are no mechanical problems, but has been known to stretch to 8:30.

Ride FAQ (please read)

No, this isn't about admitting to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

It's about riding to Three Floyds and boosting our cognitive function every month this year! Now there's a consistent schedule -- the 4th Saturday of every month -- others have opportunities to lead (I can't make it every time, including this time), and you can qualify for the F-12 Award.

The ride takes the lakefront trail south from the Clock Tower. You can join up anywhere along the trail. Just let the group know where so they can look for you.

42 miles total if you ride to Hammond and take the South Shore Line, 45 if you ride to Flossmoor Station and take the Metra, 50 if you ride to 93rd and take the Metra or to 100th and take the J14, 55 if you ride to 71st and take the J14, 70 if you ride both ways. 16-19 mph. I like to get there before they open at 11:00 (it's still the fourth-best brewery in the world, so sometimes there's a line). Bring money, government-issued ID, a lock, water and snacks to have en route, and panniers for beer you can't get in Chicago.

Online resources: Google map, cue sheet, conversation about this ride, South Shore Line Bikes on Trains schedule, Flossmoor Metra Electric train schedule, 93rd St Metra train schedule, Jeffrey Jump (J14) bus schedule, South Shore Line FAQ, Metra policy, CTA guide, and, to save a minute at the start, the nifty online CCC waiver.

Bridge across Wolf Lake

This is a great route without much traffic or stopping thanks to relatively new connections around Wolf Lake and the South Shore Drive extension. The pace will be usually in the 16-18 mph range if there is open road and no wind.

The route will be within a mile of Lake Michigan most of the way with Marktown, Indiana, as the final destination. We'll go down Chicago's lakefront to the South Shore Drive extension, through Eastside and through the woods to a bike bridge that crosses Wolf Lake, straight across 129th St to Marktown then back along the lakefront in Hammond and Whiting, to the Burnham Greenway, Calumet Park, and back to the lakefront. If you'd like to join the ride further south along the lakefront trail, please contact the ride leader to coordinate.

Marktown is a historic district in East Chicago, Indiana, designed in 1917 by Howard Van Doren Shaw. The tiny residential community was to be the start of a company town to serve the nearby steel mill owned by Clayton Mark. Shaw designed the community to be like an English village with narrow streets and houses with small yards. Marktown is in need of major preservation efforts and demolition is a threat. We'll shoot for getting back before noon to the South Shore Cultural Center and from there you can set your own pace back to downtown. No lunch is planned.

its back. The wednesday night training ride is back for another year of fast road training. We will continue with the evolved standard route from 2015.

So join us for a fast-paced training ride aimed at increasing your speed and improving your group riding skills. Practice rotating pace lines, close proximity riding and advanced bike handling while building race pace fitness.  Ride paces range from 18-22 warm-up, 25+ for extended periods with planned leadouts for sprints; re-grouping occurs after all sprints.

Due to the need to ride in a tight pack, the fast pace and training specific nature of this ride, use of traditional style road bikes is strongly recommended. Recumbent, hybrid and mountain bikes will not be allowed, time-trial handle bars are discouraged.  A certain level of experience and fitness is expected. The actual pace of the ride will be determined by the ride participants.

Heres the route we take:

https://www.strava.com/routes/4134946

This is not a no drop ride, but a range of abilities is expected (and welcomed). After a 5 mile warm up the pace will heat up and the group may fragment, chase groups will form allowing riders to continue riding together. The ride always stops for red lights and all or some of the ride will always stop to assist you with mechanical problems&punctures. Please bring tools and the ability to fix a puncture.

The ride completes at PKs Pantry convenience store close to the start point (<0.5 mile) with enough room in its car park for a large group to hang for a recovery drink and socializing with your fellow rider.

Lights are required by all in april&sept, and recommended year round if you ride home any distance after the route. Ride ends by 8:00pm if there are no mechanical problems, but has been known to stretch to 8:30.

Looking to ride a century with the feeling of support behind you?  Come along on the Pampered Century.   We’ll be heading north to the land of cheese on mainly quiet roads. 

Jim Kreps will be providing your SAG service and caterer.  At each of the two rest stops in each direction, Jim will have his truck loaded with fruits, energy drinks and bars, juices, bagels and snacks.  He will also cater lunch at the mid-point at the Kenosha Velodrome with a variety of lunchmeats, PBJ and sandwich fixings.

If something goes wrong with you and you need a bit of a rest, he can bring you to the next rest stop or further if needed.

The ride begins at the Chandler Community Center, 1028 Central Street in Evanston.

There is a $20 charge for the food and SAG vehicle costs.  Please bring cash that morning.  The ride a joint event with the Chicago Cycling Club and the Evanston Bike Club.
