Anyone up for ride over long weekend? I am thinking to do a long ride either Sat. or Sunday (or maybe monday...really depend on weather), starting near north ave bridge. Am thinking of N river branch or desplaines - but open to suggestion as long as it involves off-traffic path.

If anyone had planned on showing up....I had to cancel the ride to Botanic Gardens this morning due to just getting home at 3 am from work. I will reschedule for next weekend, but probably on Sunday.

Bad link on that Utica-to-Mendota ride.  Try this instead:

Regarding a trip to Starved Rock or the area around it:


Return to Chicago from Mendota on an Illinois Service train, which allows for carry-on bicycles, no need to transport them in a box as checked luggage.

Regarding the trip to the Botanic Garden:


When you get there:


Exit going east, and return on the Green Bay Trail

Exit going west, and return on the Des Plaines River Trail


Also, remember returning on Metra from the Braeside Station IS NOT AN OPTION because bikes aren't allowed on Metra because of the Taste of Chicago currently going on.

Also planning a ride out to Starved Rock State Park for a 2 day ride.

July 5-6 (Tue-Wed). Its approximately 50ish miles to the park. We'd take our time, make various stops and ride about 10 mph average. Camp overnight at the park (I could be convinced to motel it as well but would rather camp). Then ride back the next day.


If you are interested, email me!

Saturday, June 25th, ride to the botanical gardens via North Branch Trail. Would like to start early around 7ish am. Meet up at the start at Devon/Caldwell ride to Botanical Gardens and back. Make various stops. Take it nice and easy. Take some pictures at the Gardens as well. If you are interested in joining me, email me!
