The 14th Annual Wright Ride will be held on Sunday, August 21. Distances from 10-72 miles are available. 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, and continue through 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 (as permitted), water, Gatorade, and ice tea as well as full SAG support. Commemorative patches for all riders.
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.
This event occurs rain or shine.
