The inaugural Three Floyd’s ride was conceived and organized by Mark Sinclair and took place on January 14, 2006. As many of you know, Mark died on April 14, 2006, at age 34, a few days after suffering a brain aneurysm. It was Mark’s hope that this would become an annual event.
Here’s a link to the Burnham Century route and the traditional Winter Route.
Depending on the weather, there is also the sometimes very attractive option of returning via Metra from the Flossmoor Station [1035 Sterling Avenue Flossmoor, IL 60422-1252 , approximately 10 miles west of Three Floyds.
The fine print:
There will be no support vehicle on this ride and each rider is responsible for themselves. The pace will be 12-14 mph with a short break at Wolf Lake.
Mid January weather may be extreme, but this ride will proceed regardless of wet, windy and/or freezing weather. Please be prepared for the cold as well as flats/mechanical problems.
Pump, tube, tools
Extra layers of clothing (more than you expect to use)
