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!

Organizer

Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago

The Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago invites you to join us on a variety of rides and events. Organized in 2008, we are a club made up of all ages, cycling disciplines, and cycling abilities.
 
Active members enjoy riding together year round in a relaxed and friendly group atmosphere.
 
Various Types of Rides
Our rides range from short, easy trips for beginners, to moderately-paced tours with snack breaks, to fast, challenging rides for the more competitive minded.
 
Volunteer Ride Leaders
Volunteer club members organize group rides, leaving from various locations throughout Chicago and Northwest Indiana. Their routes provide us a wonderful variety of places to tour and explore. Some months there are 20 or more rides to choose from!
 
Ride Length Varies
Rides can be anywhere from 10 to 100+ miles, with different degrees of difficulty and speed. Therefore, we grade rides by distance, speed, and terrain so you can choose the ones you will be comfortable with.
 
Popular rides tend to be 25 to 50 miles, usually with a lunch or snack stop. Whether your focus is a fast, challenging ride or something more leisurely, come see what fun club riding can be. Our rides are free, and non-members are welcome to come try us out.
