Sunrise is getting earlier and group rides are starting up again all across the city. It’s not too hard to wake up at sunrise and get 30 miles of riding in before work. One of my favorite morning rides is Tuesday morning in Chicago. It is hosted by Spidermonkey Cycling and just for the ladies!
We start at Lincoln and Belmont at 5:30 a.m. By the way, when they say 5:30 they mean 5:30. Be there by 5:20 if you’d like to meet people off the bike! We go up to Plaza del Lago and back which is about 30 miles. Takes about 2 hours.(Some of us need to be to work by 8!)
For those of you that mountain bike too, there are women’s only mountain bike group rides. Traveling is required so these are not weekly, but Pretty. Fast. Women’s Cycling is a Chicago group that do super cool rides and events all year long.
Their next event is Saturday, May 10th, 9:00am at Palos Hills Forest Preserve in Willow Springs, IL. Rain or shine! Bring your mountain bike and a lunch! Checkout their Facebook page for other upcoming rides.
As always, have fun biking!
