Description

The 13th Annual Wright Ride will be held on Sunday, August 18.  Distances from 10-72 miles are avaiable.  The 10-mile route is a family friendly ride through Oak Park with Frank Lloyd Wright Trust Interpreters at multiple locations. The 30, 50 and 72-mile routes start in Oak Park, continue through River Forest, Berwyn, Riverside, Brookfield, La Grange and Western Springs. The two longer routes continue on to Argonne and the surrounding area.

Multiple rest stops every 12-15 miles offer fresh fruit, snacks, home baked treats, water, gatorade and ice tea as well as full SAG support.  Commerative patches for all riders and younger riders are awarded Wright Ride medals.

After the ride, stick around downtown Oak Park to dine or have post-ride drinks at one of our local restaurants, bars or craft breweries.

Event occurs rain or shine.
