Weekly Wednesday Evening Ride (North Shore Bike Path - 20 Miles Out-and-Back)

This ride will continue year round as weather permits. Pace will be 11-14 mph. For your safety as well as that of those around you, please come equipped with front and back lights.

We will ride the full length of this asphalt and crushed stone rail-to-trail from Mundelein to Lake Forest - 20 miles round trip. If you're looking to expand your trail options, this is the trail to check out - it runs parallel to Route 176 and connects to the Des Plaines River and Middlefork Forest Preserve Trails, the Skokie Valley Bikeway, and ends at the Robert McClory Trail.

Bonus: This trail passes within feet of the local Dairy Dream - a nice treat during the summer months as we near the end of our ride.

On Tuesday evening, I will email my cell phone number to all those who have RSVPed "Yes" by that time - if you are not present AND have not contacted me by 6:00 pm on Wednesday, I will assume you are not coming. As always, if you RSVP "Yes" but your plans change, please kindly update your RSVP to "No" on the Meetup site before the scheduled ride time.

We will meet in the northeast parking lot of Carmel CHS (turn off of Route 176 onto Carmel Parkway - first parking lot on your left). As this is a weekday evening and time is tight for most members, please be prompt and ready to ride at 6:00 pm.

    Another great ride in Lake County even in "hot" weather. Most of the trail is out of the direct sun.

    I took a hammer to the clown bike...hopefully that fixed the chain drop issue. Test time!

      If I may be sincere for just a moment, we could do a "reverse tailgate" and cool or eat after the ride sometime?

    High likelihood, unless a meeting being set up interferes. A cousin of mine may join, both the ride and the group!
