Winter Riding Tips 






   
The Evanston Bicycle Club has been a strong presence in Evanston and the North Shore for more than 40 years.  Our members are a very diverse group, whose cycling interests range from short recreational rides to ultra-marathon events, from rides to the coffeehouse to state-wide, week-long rides, and from loaded touring to criterium racing.

There is no warming capability at the Ecology Center, so either bring your dish in a container that keeps it warm, or bring something that can be served at room temperature. Please bring a serving utensil for your dish.
