 Time for one of our favorites rides of the season!  Northbrook Village Green start @ 8am.  Jeff Miller will lead the Fast, and Will Heelan will lead the Fast Plus, out to Barrington Hills and beyond, down the Fox River Trail to Benedict's Eggs & More in East Dundee.  There is some rain in the forecast early so we will check the weather again in the morning and post a change by 7am if needed.
