Road Ride ~ Mundelein Northwest Loop ~ 26 Miles

This is a route I pulled out of my cue sheet folder - I have no idea if I have actually ridden this one before or not, so a sense of adventure as well as patience may be required! Mileage listed is an estimate. Some of the roads we will be traveling on are Peterson, Fairfield, and Gilmer; normally traffic could potentially be heavy but I don't anticipate it to be a factor this early on a Sunday morning. We will be traveling at a pace of about 11-14 mph.

On Saturday 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 prior to 7:30 am on Sunday morning, 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 just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
