Road Ride ~ Mundelein / Grayslake / Hawthorne Woods Area ~ 25-30 Miles

A road ride to get us back on track after the long holiday weekend! I've pieced this together from several different maps (I am beyond frustrated with Map My Ride!) so a sense of adventure and patience is required - I have not yet biked this route and the total mileage is estimated. This is a loop which includes the following roads: Midlothian, Petersen, Fairfield, Gilmer, Gossell, Chevy Chase and Hawley. 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.

Please arrive a few minutes early so you a ready to ride at 7:30am. 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.

      We will be near it but will not be riding through it - we are on road the whole way.
