Moderate Ride – June 11th – 9:00 AM – Panera
This week we
are scheduled to ride to one of my favorite places – The Middlefork Savanna. A
savanna is an open woodland with grasses and forbs growing under the trees. Our
route utilizes a recently completed bridge that allows us to enter the
preserve from the Lake Forest Academy grounds. You can find the route at: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/27865884.
about four miles on the limestone trails in the preserve at a slow pace with
the possibility of some stops for nature gawking. Otherwise my pace will be a
moderate 13 – 15 mph. With enough interest and a willing leader we will have a
second group traveling at a slightly faster pace. Lunch will be at Panera in
At the moment
the weather forecast for Tuesday is promising – partly cloudy with a high
temperature of 76 degrees and winds from the SSW at 7 mph. There is only a 20% chance
of rain. If the weather should prove to be vastly different from what is predicted
making it necessary to cancel the ride, I will post a notification to the
listserv before 8 AM.
