Nomad Bicycle Rides
The Nomad Ski Club will host organized bicycle rides.
Bicycling is great exercise and a fun social adventure at the same time. All are welcome to join us: family, friends,
etc. If you want me to add anyone to my
Bicycle e-mail list please e-mail me at [masked].
The first ride will depart from Yankee Woods Forest
Preserve Area located at 163rd and Central in Oak Forest on Sunday, April 21st at 10:30am. The first pavilion on the right hand side is a good place to meet to begin the ride. Bring a picnic lunch and drinks for after the ride. We will
have a great time.
