Gravel Road Ride 3 at Illinois Centennial Monument (Kedzie/Milwaukee)

May 1, 2016 from 9am to 11:30am
Not everyone is free to ride all day on the Grumpy Grinds and Barry Roubaix's of the region. Sometimes it just takes an extra half hour on your way to work to get 'out there'. That's been my M.O. this past winter. Ice, cold, snow, rain- it's all OK when you're up on some rail-gravel. For this month's installment we'll be hitting up some terrain going into and out of the loop. Meet-up at the Illinois Centennial Monument at 9am, we'll be back before noon. Bring a bike with soft tires, and a…See More

Off-Road/ Gravel Ride Free! at Illinois Centennial Monument

April 3, 2016 from 9am to 12pm
Want to know about the greatest off-road in the city? Haven't got the time to devote a whole day to roof-racking out the the next big Gravel Ride? Join us for some good times in short time. A few hours is all it takes to get 'out there'. We'll be covering a loop on the west side that could double as the next Chi-Cross-Cup course this go-round. Two hours of riding with time to screw around.See More

Off-Road/Gravel Ride at Meet at Illinois Centennial Monument (Kedzie/Milwaukee)

March 5, 2016 from 10am to 1pm
Are you anxious to get off-road? Anticipating the Pastry-Brest-Pastry? Barry-Roubaix? Gravel Metric? It's not too soon to dust off your monster-cross or fat tire bike and hit some gnarl. This is a two hour loop I regularly ride, with some time factored in for screwing off or changing a flat. And it's in the city! Dress for weather and bring water.See More

"That's a Cannondale bag. They only fit quill stems. And not all quill stems. I like it because I can swap it from bike to bike quickly. Although I have three of them. All three are missing their snap-on map cases. I have a Berthoud bag on a…"

"Here is my main off-road road bike. A Holdsworth Mistral. I've seen it as a frameset on the cover of their 1984 catalog. That's good enough for me. I bought it a decade ago from a shop in Maryland. It had never been built up. I've…"

"We've got a few at Boulevard Bikes. Doug and I both use Berthoud bags. We have Carradice and Velo Orange. And Nate just bought the Grand Bois. No the fancy VO model Gran Cru."

"Our shop has made that the anniversary ride the last four or five years. Catching Metra home from Antioch makes it so much better. So does a pub stop in Libertyville."

"This is not my gravel bike, but one of my commuters. With 40mm tires it can handle quite a heavy ballast though. I had a bit of spare time during errands today to hop up on the tracks parallel to Kenton Ave. I'm excited that this group exists.…"

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
