Looking to ride a century with the feeling of support behind you? Come along on the Pampered Century. We’ll be heading north to Kenosha on mainly quiet roads on this trek across the Cheddar Curtain.
Jim Kreps will be providing your SAG service and caterer. At each of the two rest stops in each direction, Jim will have his truck loaded with fruits, energy drinks and bars, juices, bagels and snacks. He will also cater lunch at the mid-point at the Kenosha Velodrome with a variety of lunchmeats, PBJ and sandwich fixings.
More importantly, if something goes wrong with your bike, Jim can be there and fix most minor problems and get you moving. If something goes wrong with you and you need a bit of a rest, he can bring you to the next rest stop or further if needed.
The ride begins at the Chandler Community Center, 1028 Central Street in Evanston. There is street parking on Lincoln Street and you are near the Central Street station of the CTA Purple Line. The ride begins promptly at 7:00 and plan to return between 5:00 and 6:30. I am planning to have a riding pace between 15 and 19 mph.
There is a $20 charge for the food and SAG vehicle costs. Please bring cash that morning. The ride a joint event with the Chicago Cycling Club and the Evanston Bike Club.
Please RSVP by Friday August 14
