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

  • Carmel Catholic High School

    1 Carmel Parkway, Mundelein, Il (map)

    42.270576 -87.986824

  • Northeast Parking Lot
  • This ride will continue year round as weather permits. Pace will be in the 13 mph range, give-or-take. 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 5:45 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.

    I try to put the bike rack on the car at 5PM and then on the road by 5:15 to Mundelein. I see the rain on the radar map, so good call for cancelling this week.

    Glad I checked. I was going to join at the last minute without checking the weather. I was hoping to bring us good weather finally on Wednesday by not accepting until the last minute but I guess not.
