Come join CBES on an Autumn ride along the Des Plaines River Trail!
We'll meet at the Logan Square Monument for a 9AM departure. Head over to the Des Plaines River Trail and take that to Tighthead Brewing in Mundelein. There's no food at Tighthead so we'll either order delivery or pick something up on the way there.
Distance to Tighthead is a bit over 40 miles via 2 potential routes:
Be aware that the Des Plaines River Trail is not paved. Surface fairly smooth and is mostly crushed gravel or limestone. Make sure you and your bike can handle the trail and the distance. This is a non supported ride so make sure you can handle any minor mechanical issues or flats on your bike.
Minimum average speed: 12mph
