General Information. Ride specifics at the FOS website
The FOS Easter Ride is a one-day bicycle tour sponsored by the Folks on Spokes Bicycle Club, an Illinois not for profit organization. Since 1982 this ride has grown in popularity despite sometimes imperfect spring weather.
Since 1982 this ride has grown in popularity and remains the 'Opening Day' for Chicagoland cyclists, drawing hundreds of riders each year. The longer routes follow lightly traveled paved roads and a few miles of paved trail. The shorter routes are mostly on paved trails. All routes are clearly marked.
The ride features rest stops with fruit, drinks, sandwiches and homemade cookies. After the ride, food (including a traditional Easter Egg salad sandwich), music and massages (fee) are available.
The Easter Ride was listed as the Best Biking in America in Bicycling Magazine's April 1999 issue. The success of this invitational ride enables our Club to make generous donations to the League of American Bicyclists, Ride Illinois, Bicycle Indiana, Active Transportation Alliance, and others.
Each route follows lightly traveled paved roads and a few miles of paved trail. All routes are fully marked.
