Effective 11/05/16: Unless a remote start is listed, all Fall & Winter Rides leave from Panera Bread, 1199 Wilmette Ave, Wilmette. All day parking is free at spaces along the tracks on weekends and east of 9th on Greenleaf during the week, but check signs when you park. Please do NOT park in the Panera Bread parking lot.
Please wear a helmet, have a bike in good mechanical condition, carry water and a spare inner tube, and be on time so the ride can start promptly. You are expected to ride safely and courteously as outlined in Guidelines for Safe Group Riding and to follow the rules of the road. Ride leaders reserve the right at their sole discretion to ask any rider who does not wear a helmet or who treats others disrespectfully to leave the club sponsored ride. All EBC rides must have a sign-in sheet and all participating riders must sign in. You may ride with EBC a few times before joining.
Two ride paces are indicated by "/" - for example "F/F+" means that there will be a Fast group and a Fast Plus group. Usually the groups will meet at the Snack/Lunch break. Pace is the nominal riding speed on the road. The overall average speed will be slower due to stops. The pace may vary due to conditions. On Fast, Fast Plus and Very Fast rides you may be left behind if you cannot maintain the pace.
