Ride for Epilepsy
June 9, 2019
8:00 am
Caldwell Woods
6350 W. Devon Ave.
Chicago, IL

The Ride for Epilepsy is a scenic 40-mile ride through the North Branch Trail (starting at the Caldwell Woods Picnic Grove) to the Chicago Botanic Gardens and back. If 40 miles on a bicycle isn’t your thing, you can break off halfway at the Botanic Gardens and take a Metra train to Chicago. Or, you are welcome to donate in support of your favorite rider and the cause. The ride should take four to five hours, beginning at 8:30 AM and ending around 1:00 PM.  After returning to Caldwell Woods, we will meet across the street to refuel at the one and only Superdawg drive-in for classic Chicago Dawgs! Registration costs $40. For more information, and to register, click here.
