Gravel Grinders

Do you enjoy riding smooth crushed limestone or find the North Branch Trail's parallel dirt paths irresistible? Hardcore enough to tackle the Dirty Kanza 200 or Trans Iowa 300? All of the above? Somewhere in between? Then this group is for you! Post and discuss anything related to riding crunchy or loose surfaces.See More

Eric Peterson replied to terryg's discussion PBP2015 in the group Chicago Randonneurs
"I did PBP in 2007 with Des Peres (Claus) because they took care of everything. He has been doing this for some time and is still in business so that is a testament to his doing something right. In my case this meant that I had rooms at the agreed…"

"I completed it in 2007 and thought it was a fantastic and humbling experience. If there is any interest maybe we could have a meetup sometime for Q&A with those that have been there and those that are interested in going. Personally I like to…"

Eric Peterson replied to Millennium Park Bike Station's discussion New Cycle Center Location?
"I too have used MacDonald Cycle Station, leaving my bike there then walking 1.25 miles back to Wacker and Adams. Which meant then walking back there after work, and then riding across the Loop at rush hour. This must have added 45 minutes or more to…"

Eric Peterson replied to Travis Kluska's discussion Who is interested in indoor secure bicycle parking at and around Union Station?
"Thanks! I posted there as well. I also see interest in Merchandise Mart, which is about one mile from Union Station, and also from McDonalds Cycle Center. Wouldn't it be great if we could have this triad of options?  Considering all the…"

Eric Peterson replied to Millennium Park Bike Station's discussion New Cycle Center Location?
"Union Station - same as Travis - safe indoor bicycle parking, showers, and lockers. If not in Union Station then within a block or two, preferably to the north. Union Station has been in the news lately concerning plans to upgrade and improve its…"

Eric Peterson replied to Travis Kluska's discussion Who is interested in indoor secure bicycle parking at and around Union Station?
"I would be interested in working with others to find a solution. Seems there might be some undeveloped available building space somewhere on Canal, including possibly in Union Station. How cool would that be. I can see that there is closed off space…"

Eric Peterson replied to Travis Kluska's discussion Who is interested in indoor secure bicycle parking at and around Union Station?
"I would love to see a Millenium Park type facility near Union Station as I work at Wacker and Adams.  Unfortunately the owners of my building are unenlightened as to the benefits of providing indoor bike parking, and I have no firm to use as a…"

"In case you didn't know, there is now an option to ride this route in reverse. That's what I did last Sunday with a 6:30AM departure. Had to navigate many closed roads due to the Naperville Marathon, but the officials generally let me ride…"

"I ended up doing the ride one week later (Oct.25th) with a 7AM start. It was foggy all the way to Plano, where it suddenly cleared up to blue skies. Ended up fighting headwinds whenever headed north on the way back, but conditions were pretty nice…"

Eric Peterson replied to Eric Peterson's discussion GLR 2015 in the group Chicago Randonneurs
"The 200K portion of the 600K may well be a route used a few years ago that goes to Lake Michigan and back. If that is the same route, it does have a bit of suburban riding, and perhaps some more challenging hills than on the regular 200K route. All…"
