Weekly Wednesday Evening Ride (North Shore Bike Path - 20 Miles Out-and-Back)

This ride will continue year round as weather permits. Pace will be 11-14 mph. For your safety as well as that of those around you, please come equipped with front and back lights.

We will ride the full length of this asphalt and crushed stone rail-to-trail from Mundelein to Lake Forest - 20 miles round trip. If you're looking to expand your trail options, this is the trail to check out - it runs parallel to Route 176 and connects to the Des Plaines River and Middlefork Forest Preserve Trails, the Skokie Valley Bikeway, and ends at the Robert McClory Trail.

Bonus: This trail passes within feet of the local Dairy Dream - a nice treat during the summer months as we near the end of our ride.

On Tuesday 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 5:45 pm on Wednesday, 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.

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.
