Busse Woods Night Ride

Busse Woods Night Ride 2016

September 10, 2016
Join Friends of the Forest Preserves and Friends of Cycling in Elk Grove for the second annual after-dark bike ride through Busse Woods! Explore the expansive preserve by bike, winding through meadows, woods, and along the shore of the 640-acre lake. All riders will receive a reflective ankle wrap and a bike bell. All adult ticket holders will also receive two craft beers. Everyone will enjoy a live band, 3 bonfires, snacks, s’mores, and the great outdoors! This is your one chance to explore the Forest Preserves of Cook County at night, so don’t miss out! Based on your feedback, this year we have added a Sunset Ride, departing at 7:00 pm to enjoy sundown at 7:08 in the heart of Busse Woods. We have also added two Extended Rides, adding 3 miles of trail (11 miles total) and running approximately 1.5 hours. The Night Ride has capacity for 250 participants who will cycle in 15 waves of no more than 18 riders each. You must be 12 or older to ride. Each wave is approximately 8 miles in length and takes approximately 1 hour to complete, unless otherwise noted. In order to select the time and style of ride that best suits your needs, please register early.   If you can’t ride but want to enjoy the event, you can purchase a spectator ticket.
