About this event

The 14th Annual Wright Ride will be DIY Self Supported this year. You can ride from Saturday, August 14 to Sunday, August 22. Ride any of these dates at any time. Distances from 10-72 miles are available. The 10mile route is exclusively in Oak Park, 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. All riders must register and sign the waiver. There will be no in-person check-in this year.

Commemorative patches will be available for the first 200 riders that complete any route.

Have fun and ride at your own pace this year. Sorry, there are no volunteers or rest stops available this year. Have fun, ride safe, stay hydrated, come back again in 2022 for the fully supported ride. Show your registration form at Wheel and Sprocket or Bike Fix after your ride for a free patch while supplies last.
