First Ride of Spring 2017

Date(s) - 8 Apr 2017
7:00 AM - 9:30 AM

Higher Gear - Wilmette

Category(ies): Chicagoland

It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve been able to ride (consistently) outside. That wait has been even longer for our buddy John McCormick, who has been patiently enduring indoor trainer workouts for longer than any of us.

Come April 8th, we all – including McCormick! – have reason to celebrate. We’re kicking off another season of outdoor group riding with our eighth annual First Ride of Spring!


Higher Gear Wilmette Group Ride bicycle bike group Gearheads Saturday Morning


Our First Ride of Spring will leave our Wilmette shop Saturday, April 8th promptly at 7:00am. Please arrive by 6:45am with your tires pumped, water bottles full and bikes ready to roll – so we can begin the ride on time. As with all our rides, helmets are required. Headphones are not allowed.

This is a no-drop ride, so nobody gets left behind. All skill levels are welcome.


Join us post-ride for our cooked-to-order omelette bar at the shop.
