Pace: Casual (10-12 mph)
Distance: 21 Miles
Start Location: Chandler Park, Evanston
Leader: Mike Kruger
This week's Thursday Casual Ride: A nice ride up to Botanic Garden. We will spend an hour in the garden, including a PICNIC at the picnic area near the Learning Center. This part of the garden does not require a fee or showing a membership card, and you can walk (around the lake) to the rest of the Garden from here. Alternatively, we may bike back to the Science Center and walk around the gardens at the south end of the Great Basin.
In the enclosed map, the bike path is highlighted in yellow, and the picnic area is circled in red.
We will take the North Branch Trail to the Garden, and the Green Bay Trail back.
