I thought this event was for this year, I'll have to search for the 2015 Night Owl Ride!

Only complaint I have is the rest stop was near the end and should have been in the middle of the ride.
Signage was a lot better this year. On long runs though 1 extra sign would have helped to know you were still on course.

A very nice ride. Well organized and better staffed than most. The bicycling infrastructure we saw along the 24-mile route was impressive.

Thank you Crystal Lake Night Owl Bike Ride for a wonderful ride on a perfect summer's night! Crystal Lake 'is' a bike friendly community and anyone that didn't experience your Night Owl Bike Ride tonight should check it out next time. Thank you all ! See you down the road!

I remember last year was crowded this year appears to be more so!!!
But it is for a good cause and lots of fun!

FYI Guys-

We're looking at a potential "sell-out" tonight.  By sell-out I mean reaching our 500 rider limit.  Who would have thought a ride way out in Crystal Lake, IL, starting at 11:00 PM would have grown this fast in three years?!  There are 136 open slots which will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
