Fast Ride 17mph (Will's Bday Ride) rescheduled to ...
Author Last Post
This is normally a weekend ride but the weather refuses to cooperate this year!  I was considering Saturday but that doesn't look like much fun weatherwise and Sunday doesn't look promising either.  So let's try for Monday!  Sorry that's it's not on a weekend, but I'm hoping there's a few people who might still be able to join me.

High Fast ride (17mph) on lots of bike trails.  I did check the North Branch trail yesterday from Devon to Winnetka and it was rideable with some great Fall color.  If you are able to do the whole ride please bring lights since it will be getting dusky as we finish...

So, fingers crossed for Monday!

Will's Birthday Ride (17mph) ~ Will Heelan
Join Will Heelan for his annual birthday ride!  The 68 mile Fast ride will connect a lot of bike trails and run mostly at 17 mph. It will start with a nice view of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline from Northwestern University, then back west to travel south on the McCormick bike path through the Skokie Sculpture Park and west on Bryn Mawr to Forest Glen where we head north on the North Branch bike path through the forest preserves to the Botanic Gardens and over to Max's Deli for our lunch stop.  After lunch we head up the Skokie Valley Trail and Waukegan to Rte 176 and east to Lake Bluff.  We will stop by Sunrise Park beach and travel south via scenic roads to the Lake Forest beach.  Then we will continue south via the bike path and through Ft. Sheridan.  We will finish our ride via Sheridan Rd. and various side streets back down the North Shore to Wilmette.
