Rotary Botanical Gardens
Janesville has a
wonderful, paved trail system, that connects their neighborhoods and parks. We'll explore the Spring Brook Trail, Kiwanis Bike Trail, Rock Trail, Peace Trail and South Connector Trail. These trails are connected by one central point, or "hub", and radiate out from this point like spokes on a wheel. Our ride will be about 30 miles, at a pace conducive to safe trail riding with other trail users. We'll stop for lunch at a local restaurant during our ride. At the end of our ride, we'll take a walking tour of
Rotary Botanical Gardens, a 20-acre non-profit botanic garden that is home to many dramatic and themed gardens. They'll be hosting a plant sale, so you may wish to consider buying a plant to take home to your own garden.
Plan to arrive between 9:00 AM and 9:30 AM. We will push-off promptly at 10:00 AM.
Directions: Take exit 175A off of I-90 to merge onto E Racine Street. Go 0.7 miles on E Racine Street. Turn left at Palmer Drive (stoplight) and go 0.7 miles. Rotary Botanical Gardens will be on your right. We'll meet in the parking lot by the Visitor's Center.
