The Land Conservancy of McHenry County will host the Night Owl bike ride on Saturday, Aug. 6.

The ride will start at 10 p.m. with a gathering and live music by local musicians Julie and the Gems at the Crystal Lake City Hall complex, 100 W. Woodstock St. Crystal Lake starting at 8:30 p.m.

 

The Night Owl ride was founded in 2012 as an affordable nighttime bike ride that promotes cycling as an alternate means of transportation and exercise within the City of Crystal Lake. Proceeds from the Night Owl Ride will benefit local nonprofit The Land Conservancy of McHenry County and its efforts to preserve open spaces in McHenry County.

The event is $15 per rider in advance and $20 on the night of the event. Registration is available at www.TLCNightOwl.org.

2022 Night Owl ride T-shirts are available to purchase for an additional $15.

The Night Owl is limited to 500 riders, so participants are encouraged to register early.

The main bicycle route is approximately 22 miles, and two shorter "family-friendly" routes will be available as well. The ride will start and end at Crystal Lake City Hall and traverse several points of interest in Crystal Lake.
