Millennium Trail Ride ~ Tighthead Brewing Co

  • Tighthead Brewing Company

    161 North Archer Avenue, Mundelein, IL (map)

    42.266113 -88.001289

  • Parking Lot - Contact host if cannot locate the group (see listing)
  • This ride was cancelled June 21st due to weather - let's try it again!

    We'll meet in the parking lot at Tighthead Brewing Company, then travel west through Mundelein and pickup the Millenium Trail. After exploring the trail, we'll head back to Tighthead to enjoy a beer or two in the Tap Room or out on the patio! You may also order food, if you so desire.

    The Millenium Trail is loose gravel - deep in spots - so a hybrid or mountain bike is highly recommended. The pace of this ride will be 10-14 mph, with HILLS; though this is a "no drop" ride, please be sure you are able to maintain this pace for an extended period of time. We'll play the distance by ear but plan on at least 18 miles.

    On Saturday, I will email my cell phone number to all those who have RSVPed "Yes" - 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 before the scheduled ride time. Please arrive a few minutes early so you are ready to ride at 6:30 pm!

    To find Tighthead Brewery, take Division Street east. Division Street will dead-end in the Metra Train Station complex; Tighthead will be located on your right as you enter the complex, just after crossing Archer Avenue - second drive on right.

    Front and rear lights are required on this ride!

    I too will have to cancel. Checking the radar it doesn't look good. I was looking forward to this ride but the ride to Mundelein and the rain I see here I just don't want to chance it :-(
