Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this ride leader insists that all participants wear a face covering while riding. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Rides during the COVID-19 pandemic: MTC3 is following the guidelines as set by the CDC, IDPH, and the Chicago Department of Health. We are limiting the number of cyclists who participate and may break up the group into multiple groups, if necessary. Please plan to bring and wear a mask and practice social distancing.

This ride will only go if weather is permitting. Please check with the ride leader before traveling to the ride to check if the ride may be cancelled due to weather.

HELMETS ARE REQUIRED ON ALL MAJOR TAYLOR CHICAGO RIDES!

WHAT TO BRING TO AN MTC3 RIDE:

Part of being a good cyclist is having the tools and accessories necessary to be self-sufficient, safe, and ready to ride. Below is a general list of items to bring and a to-do list to be ready for an MTC3 ride.

Gear Bag: buy a gear bag (saddle bag is recommended) and stock it with the basics – extra tube, tire tools, a small multi-tool, and either a mini-pump or a CO2 cartridge set.

Tire Pressure: pump your tires up before coming to the ride, or bring a floor pump that you can use in the parking lot before the ride. If you need help, MTC3 ride leaders will be there to help you learn.

Your bike: Give it a quick inspection. Spin the wheels to make sure they aren’t rubbing. Do the gears shift accurately and easily? Does everything seem to be in order? This is called an ABC check. (Air, Brakes, and Chain)

Hydration/Food: Remember to bring water/sports drink and maybe an energy snack (bar, gel, banana, etc).

Optional items: The following will make your ride more enjoyable, but aren’t absolutely necessary. Cycling gloves, sunglasses, cycling shoes and clipless pedals, padded cycling shorts.

Be on Time: MTC3 rides leave promptly at the advertised time. Get to the start of the ride with plenty of time to get yourself and your bike ready to roll with soul!
