Ride in Red Oak Nature Center and Surrounding trail

Another of my cousin's children are graduating in the Spring, and I will be back in the Batavia, North Aurora area on Memorial Day weekend.. The graduation party is on Saturday May 24th, but I thought we could plan a ride in that area for the Sunday May 25th.  Tommy and I rode through the Red Oak Nature center trail in June of 2o12 when I was in the area for another graduation, after our bigger group ride further south in Aurora on Sunday June 3rd, and getting some lunch there with Carolyn.

The trail through the nature center has some hills, but is a very nice trail at that point compared to the narrow and rougher pavement sections we rode North of the Priscoe Center last time.  Also, I would be interested in checking out that Devil's cave there, and getting a group picture of us in front of it on our Trikkes, if possible, in place of the kids below...

We could cut across the river in Batavia, and ride on the West side as far north as the Fabyan Forest Preserve South of Geneva..  The trail on the West is good in that section!  We could grab something to eat in Batavia..  Let me know your thoughts.

    It was fun to having my sister Susan pushing me to keep on trikking and don't stop. It was hard to keep up with Bruce at times. Very hilly at certain points through out Red Oak Trails. But it was very peaceful,refreshing and something different outside Chicago for a change. Thanks Bruce for a special time. Carolyn P. Susan had a great time walking around taking our pictures, and more.

    Sorry, can't make the ride. Have a migraine that won't quit. Hope to see you all sometime soon.

    Hi Bruce & Crew : I was able to talk my driver aka older sister Susan into bring me out here. She doesn't trikke at all Carol J. tried last time, she didn't fall for it at all . It's sisterhood moral support that's it. We will leave a bit early from Chicago to get here on time. If something changes call me on my cell [masked] and ask for me Carolyn Perry.

    Count Mark and I in for this one !!!!! This is so close to us in Elgin; would be neat to incorporate something in Elgin too, as this is Memorial Day Weekend. We could do an early Saturday, before your Graduation Party; or even something on Monday, Memorial Day. Bruce, give it some thought; and let me know what you think.
