Shirl's 2nd Annual Birthday Ride - Fox River Trail 9am -- CANCELLED

Join us for a scenic ride paralleling the Fox River. We will be stopping for lunch at The Filling Station in St. Charles. After the ride, walk across the street and enjoy a beverage/libation at The Tap House Grill in Oswego.

The inaugural Birthday Ride last year was a huge success and a great time was had by all.

Please review the Route Map prior to the ride. This will be a 40 mile bike ride and we will start promptly at 9 am. Please arrive early to prepare your bike for the journey.

Shorter distances can be achieved if you modify your start location. Please notify me if you plan to adjust your starting location and starting time. There are strategic places along the route to park.

The Fox River Trail is paved and road bike friendly, but you can bring any kind of human powered vehicle you wish.

We have an alternate start location for those that wish a shorter distance this Saturday. This will reduce the total mileage down to 24 miles round trip. All riders opting for this location must send an RSVP to Shirl. You may either call/text Shirl at 816.674.3556 or email Shirl at if you wish to take advantage of the shorter distance. We want to ensure we know who will be meeting us in Aurora.
