How Do We Meet?

Thursday Night Social Get Together

In addition to the ride schedule, the bike club meets regularly at Ballydolye in Downers Grove at 6:00 PM for the early drinkers (or after the Thursday Night Escape) - nothing formal, just a great chance to get together and enjoy each other's company. 

Ballydoyle is located at 5167 Main Street in Downers Grove.


The purpose of the server is to create a positive and welcoming virtual area of engagement focused around cycling: training, fitness, technology, equipment, self-improvement, lifestyle, and connection with like-minded individuals. Developed during the the COVID-19 Pandemic, the DGBC Discord Server was started to allow for club members to communicate digitally and chat while doing virtual rides on Zwift, and later added a "touchless" ride sign-in once DGBC began sponsoring outdoor rides again.  DISCORD provides us the ability to connect about rides, meet and engage with club members while maintaining privacy, and is a tremendous enhancement to the DGBC Member Experience.  For more information on how to join the conversation, reach out to
