Jane - If you get started around 9:15, you probably would get to the trail at 105th around 9:45-10:00, right?  If that's the case, you'd be about an hour behind us going south.  I'm planning to lead the 18 mile group on your intended route from the southbound trail into Blue Island, with a likely stop at Iversen's.  If you want to meet us at Iversen's, then go north from there, it would be great to ride with you for a while.  I think we should get there around 9:30-9:45 if there are no problems on the way.

Ken - Hope we'll see you then.

Hi everyone,

I will be bringing my Cal-Sag Cycles kids (about 15 of us) up to ride the MT trail that day.  We start out at 9:15 am from 123rd and Western, so I have no idea if we will see anyone.  Should we head N. or South to hook up with the formal ride?  


My initial plan was to ride to 105th via streets, then take the trail south to Whistler Woods, over to Blue Island past the Joe Louis golf course and the CSX trail yard.


Hope to see someone tomorrow!
