1 Carmel Parkway, Mundelein, Il
Join us for a trail ride to - and through - the Chicago Botanic Garden!
From Mundelein, we will take the North Shore Bike Path to Lake Bluff, where we will pick up the Skokie Bike Path. The SBP will take us to within two miles of the Garden; the last two miles of our trip will be on-road. The trails we will be riding consist of packed, crushed stone and asphalt; your road bike - if that's your riding preference - should handle the stone path just fine. Once at the Garden, we'll enjoy some sight seeing and can grab a bite to eat at the Garden Cafe.
Garden admission is free for bicyclists!
On Friday 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 8:30 am on Saturday, 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).
