Event details

Enjoy nature while getting a little exercise. Join a group of individuals on a relaxing recreational bike ride starting on Centennial Trail in Romeoville. The ride begins by crossing the historic swing bridge and continues through forested areas leading to a view of the Des Plaines River. About halfway through the ride, a short excursion underneath the towering Interstate 355 overpass on Veterans Memorial Trail provides a unique view.

This ride is the first of four Rec Bike Club rides this fall. Other rides are as follows:

Those who participate in all four rides will receive a promotional rechargeable bike taillight.
