Chicago Friars Ski & Bike Club
Who we are
We are a diverse group of people who love to ski, camp, bike, canoe, and be active 365 days of the year.
New members are always welcome! Or join us for a trip or event! Explore our site.
We will participate in activities in the safest way possible including social distancing and requiring masks as the situation warrants. You are expected to participate safely and respectfully and abide by all local or club restrictions during this time.
A summer-only membership is $15. An annual single membership is only $25 and a couple's membership is $35 -- any kind of couple living in the same house! Membership gets you a monthly newsletter and a spot on our email list. Learn more...
June 18-21, 2020: Camping at High Cliff State Park is CANCELLED.
Wisconsin was not quite ready to let us social distance in the group camping spots. Better safe than sorry, I guess. See you in July (fingers crossed).
July 12: Friars Annual Picnic has been CANCELLED.
While our picnic permit is still usable, eue to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no restroom facilities. We are talented but maybe not THAT talented.

Dodgeville, WI -- Group Site A -- reservation begins on Thursday but you can come on Friday too!
Amishland and Lakes Bike Ride in Indiana has been CANCELLED.
