Let's jump on the Millenium Trail at Mundelein High School and head west, then north towards Volo. We will be traveling at a pace of 11-14 mph and will head out at least 10 miles; at that point, those who want to continue on to Marl Flat Forest Preserve in Volo can do so or - if you've had your fill - feel free to turn around and head back to Mundelein. This trail is virtually all crushed stone - a hybrid or mountain bike would be best for this trip.
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 are 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.
