Tonight’s Monday Night Group ride was the last one of the season, we were pushing daylight the whole way. We will ride again soon!
Please comment or send us a PM if you would be interested in getting together and riding periodically over the course of the “off” season. If we have enough interest we will look at putting together a weekend ride.
Thank you to everyone who came out and rode with us this year, we hope to see you again next year!
The CCC is coming up on the Sunday after Labor Day (September 13th) . This is not only one of the oldest cycling events in central Illinois it is the premier cycling event for the Springfield IL bicycle club.
This is an ideal event for a first time cyclist! First (and foremost) it is not a race!!! This is a purely recreational the ride.You choose the distance (options are 10, 25, 40, 62 and 100 miles) over flat to slightly rolling terrain.
The roads are entirely paved. Some of our roads have a little gravel on them. The club utilizes low-volume (but paved) county roads whenever possible. They will modify the route when needed if road conditions change due to any road resurfacing work.
Have you been training solo? If so don’t forget that you can still join us on Monday Nights for the Monday night group ride. We leave the shop at 6:00PM see you then or at the Capitol City Century.
If you haven’t registered already there is still time! The Capital City Century is one great ride, with several routes to choose from; including a 10 mile family run, that is led by local cyclist and magician Jim “Magic” Percy.
Register today! Ride Local, Buy Local!
If you have already registered (Awesome, BTW, you are going to have a blast!), there is still time to get a tune-up before the big ride. With the tune-up (as with most repairs) we will have you ready to go the next day.
PS: The food stops along the route and at the after party are AMAZING! I have it on good authority there will be 220 pounds of fish for the after party!
