Oo mee me!! I'm planning on riding up to Heinz Orchard in Green Oaks on Saturday, Oct 3! It's about 34 miles each way. They're open from like 9:30-5:30, and starting Oct 2nd, they'll have more varieties.
I'll expand the question to include cider mills - y'know, the whole cider-and-donuts thing. I like going to cider mills in the fall, even if they do tend to be corny.
Garden of Eden is always a good place.
I rode past there this afternoon; you may want to call the day before you go, Atkinson is all torn up. If you take St. Marys rd, Pearson to Crest is an option.

I think I'm organizing a trip for this. I'll be posting it as an event very soon. We can do Metra on the way back if we have too many apples, ha.
But ya, Saturday Oct 3rd. Probably leaving in the morning, I'll figure out a route.
Applehaus in Long Grove--apple fest next weekend. I was thinking of taking a trip up to Didier Farms--about 26 miles each way, donuts made with apple cider!

No contributions here but I'd love to join if anyone decide to make an event of it.
Hmm donuts...
Donuts...Count me in! Can someone organize a ride on a Sunday!? Or maybe I will....
count me in if you do not go this coming weekend.
