Ride Prairie Trail (McHenry County)
June 5, 2021
9 AM

Join us for a ride on the Prairie Trail in McHenry County. (This is the continuation of the Fox River Trail in McHenry County.) We will ride north on the McHenry Prairie Bicycle Trail from McHenry to Richmond and back. The ride is about 22 miles. A mix of open and shade. This is mostly a rail trail, but there are a couple hills where the railroad right of way isn't followed exactly. Most of the trail is hard limestone.

This is a casual speed ride. No one left behind.

Temperatures are expected in the upper 80's.

Reminders: Helmets are expected safety gear. Bike must be in reasonable condition. Guests are welcome to join us for one ride but are expected to join the club for additional rides (insurance requirements). Bring a mask to use restrooms. We'll practice appropriate social distancing when not riding. Fountains will probably be disabled so bring enough water.
