Paved Trail/Road Ride ~ Mundelein to Grayslake ~ 18 Miles

A paved ride (in case it's muddy!) in the afternoon (to catch some warmer air!) from Mundelein High School to Rollins Savanna Forest Preserve; if it's dry enough, we can take a spin through the Savannah as well! We will be traveling at a pace of 11-14 mph.

On Sunday morning, 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 ride time, 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 prior to the scheduled ride time.

Meetup
Please arrive a few minutes early so you a ready to ride at 2 pm. We will meet in the southeast parking lot in front of Mundelein High School. The closest entrance to this area is off of Hawley Street, about one block west of Midlothian Road.

      I saw you moving pretty well on the inclines, which are going to be the toughest on your knees. If you're feeling good tomorrow, I'd say you done yourself good.

      Thanks! I iced my knee and took ibuprofen before bed. My knee survived though a little tender at meniscus. Now to build my cardio level back up again, too.

    Great ride! Stayed with the front people and we had a nice pace going for an early in the year outing of casual cyclists.

      rode across Iowa without the use of my clips....couldn't get my left foot clipped. Have ridden before with only the r foot clipped, & have fallen when stopped because I step down with my r foot. Old habits die hard!

    What is the route? I live near Rollins Savanna so I may ride to the start and double the miles. I haven't found a good route to Mundelien so this would be helpful.

      Thanks!

    Hi Becky, I think this is a paved trail so road bike will work. Kathi will correct me if I'mm wrong!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
