Tues 9/20 Moderate 45 mile Ride to Middlefork Sava...
Author Last Post


Will Heelan will be filling in for Neal on this week's Tuesday Moderate Ride to Middlefork Savanna. A savanna is open woodland with grasses and forbs growing under the trees. We will ride at a moderate pace (13-15mph) to this rare remnant from Illinois' pre-settlement past. We'll ride a bit more than four miles on the limestone trail in the preserve with some nature gawking. The trail is suitable for road bikes (as long as you are not in a hurry). After lunch at the Panera on 176 we will resume our moderate pace on the roads and paved paths back to Evanston. With enough interest and another willing ride leader there may be another section at a slightly faster pace.
