Community Bike Ride 

Saturday Sept 23rd 2023


Our family friendly bike ride and celebration returns! Join us for a gentle 8 mile ride along the Des Plaines River Trail. Afterwards we'll have music and refreshments.

Registration starts at 9am. Ride departs at 10am.  Music and refreshments afterwards  around noon. 

This year we have a change of start point. We'll meet at Campground Road Woods Forest Preserve near the Methodist Campground and south of Algonquin Road.   


All riders should wear a helmet. Please bring a water bottle to reduce waste.  

This ride is free to attend but we appreciate donations to help offset the cost of this event, and to support our work advocating for bikers and pedestrians. 

Please consider a $10 donation. Each donor will be entered into our post-ride raffle. We have some cool gift baskets and gift cards for local businesses
