From your couch to adventure in 12 weeks!

Too often, adventures are too expensive, too far, too out of reach. Not this one! In 12 short weeks you’ll go from fatigued to empowered, thrilled to roll out your own front door, on your own power, and discover the natural beauty lurking in your own home state.

This summer, let Cosmic Bikes lead you on a path of improving your fitness, boosting your confidence and forging new friendships, while we engage in local rides and adventures, culminating in a scenic metric century ride through some of the most beautiful roads in Northern Illinois.

Every week, join a group of fellow riders for a training ride to build your fitness and skills. Weekday rides will focus on speed, weekends on distance, and you will receive a personalized guide and log to complete your training on your own schedule.

Fitness

Workshops on cross-training, injury prevention, nutrition, bicycle fit and more will ensure that your training is well-rounded, and that by the end of the summer you feel fit, capable, healthy and ready for adventure.

Camaraderie

Weekly rides, workshops, check-ins and a number of social events with other participants will make the process fun, and keep you accountable and motivated.
