Tuesday Moderate Ride – March 21st – 9:00 AM – Panera

The temperature is expected to climb to 53 degrees on Tuesday, and the wind will be out of the south at 10 – 15 mph. Sounds like a great day to ride to Lathrop House in Forest Park. Here is a link to the route I will be using: Lathrop House-2 - A bike ride in Wilmette, IL ( The total distance will be about 43 miles. It is my intention ro ride at a moderate (13 – 15 mph) pace.

In the interest of full disclosure, the high temperature will probably not be reached until after our ride is finished. It should be around 38 or 40 when we leave Panera and might reach 51 or 52 about the time we get back. Likewise, while I will try to maintain a moderate pace, this ride is likely to be a touch slower than most rides I lead. There will be a lot of stop and go urban riding and some bad pavement. Lathrop House, however, is a delight. Check here for photos, videos, PR puff, and the menu: Lathrop House Cafe - Forest Park, IL ( Please note that while the menu says that breakfast is served until 11:00 AM, the last several times we’ve been there breakfast was being served all day.
