This week's Tuesday Moderate Ride: A savanna is open woodland with grasses and forbs growing under the trees. We will ride at a moderate pace 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 at a slow pace. 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.
It is likely there will be enough interest, and another ride leader, to lead a separate section at Fast Pace (15-17mph).
