JBC is considering a century option for our 2015 4th of July Ride. Centuries have an early start and we will require riders to be finished by 3PM, especially given the holiday. We’d appreciate pro/con feedback from any riders. Please send to — firstname.lastname@example.org
2014 4th of July Ride
Come and join us for our annual ride through Kendall and Grundy Counties, southwest of Plainfield, IL on Friday July 4th, 2014. There are three routes: 30, 45 and 62 miles. Each will offer marked routes with low traffic and light hills through farm and rural settings. There will be breaks along the way, at our strategically placed rest stops, to refuel, refresh, and chow down on bagels, sandwiches, fruit, cookies and energy drinks.
The safety of ride participants is of primary importance. Routes are on public roads and must be shared with motor vehicles. We recommend all riders wear helmets, ride no more than two abreast, and obey all traffic laws. We believe bicyclists deserve to share the road, showing courtesy to motorists and other riders. Please exit roadway at rest stops.
All riders aged seventeen and under must be accompanied and supervised by an adult throughout the ride.
SAG vehicles will be patrolling all routes. While Sags will stop to help those in need, priority is given to those with justifiable emergencies—riders with irreparable breakdowns, illness or injury. A flat tire is not considered an emergency. All riders should carry a spare tube, pump and water.
All riders must be off the road by 4:00 PM, so please, don’t take too many breaks and plan accordingly!
