The Return of the Weekly Wednesday North Branch Evening Ride (Gary C.)

  • Jul 24, 2013 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We start at Harms Woods, gather at 5:30pm, and ride at 5:45pm, usually north to Dundee Road. I anticipate a pace of about 12-14mph and a distance of about 14-18 miles, but we can change this, or the direction, if needed.
Trail Type / Bike Type
This is a paved trail and any bike will do.
There is a lot at Harms Woods with ample parking. We MUST have our cars out of there by sunset. The Cook County Forest Preserve Police are usually pretty strict about that.
Feel free to arrange carpools amongst yourselves.
What You Should Bring
Bike (in good working order), Helmet, Extra Inner Tube, Portable Air Pump (or CO2 cartridges), Tire Levers, Sunscreen, Lock (if stopping for dinner), Money (if stopping for dinner), Cell phone (recommended), Photo ID (recommended), Insurance Card (recommended), Munchies / Power Bars / Trail Mix (recommended for any long ride without a break for food.)
Waiver / Helmet Rule
Each rider will have to sign a waiver for each ride (I will supply the waivers). All riders must wear a helmet for the duration of the ride.
I plan to do this ride unless it rains heavily. I like the Paul Simon song but do not plan to keep Slip Sliding Away. ;)
