Fall Fling

Nothing like a dose of cool air to get you set for fall. It’s time to pull out some of your cool weather clothing options.  Arm warmers, knee warmers, a vest and a nice base layer will help provide just enough warmth to keep you happy on these cooler days. While we’re losing the daylight for our evening rides, there’s still plenty of time to get out and ride. Check below for a listing of the current options.


Saturday No Drop Ride. This 2 hour ride departs from Higher Gear Wilmette at 7AM. Riders enjoy a scenic ride along Sheridan Road.

Sunday Ride. Our Sunday ride is on this week! We will head out on the Darrell Fisher loop at 8AM Sunday morning for a 60 mile ride which will average 19mph.

Tuesday Women’s ride. This ride departs from HG Wilmette at 9:30AM. The 1.5 hour ride is split into groups based on ability.

Fredo’s Ride.  Join Fredo on a fast paced group ride each Thursday evening until we run out of daylight. The ride departs from HG Wilmette at 5:30PM and averages 20+mph.
