Known for the first invitational ride of the biking season, The Easter Ride, Folks on Spokes offers much more to its members and the Chicago/Northwest Indiana biking community. Folks on Spokes (FOS) is one of Chicagolands premier biking clubs, with year round activities and is consistent in making an impact on the state of cycling in the Chicago south suburban area.
FOS provides members with opportunities to ride with cyclists of similar riding abilities on a variety of weekly routes from 15 to 100 miles in length. Rides are scheduled on weekdays as well as every weekend during the cycling season. Membership rides at all speeds from 9-12mph to 16+mph. Most rides involve a rest-stop where we can grab a bite to eat. Our 'Turtle' group has a special fondness for ice cream.
Offseason finds Folks on Spokes members gathering for hikes and cross-country skiing. Hikes are held every-other week, and skiing depends on snow conditions.
