Bugline Trail - Saturday - September 23 - 9:30
September 23, 2017
9:30 am

Geoff Sorensen and I are hosting a Schaumburg Bike Club ride Saturday on the Bug Line Trail. Ride will start at 9:30 am. The actual address where we will meet is Smart Cow at N91W17271 Appleton Avenue, Monomonee Falls, Wisconsin 53051. Smart Cow is about an hour and 40 minutes from Schaumburg. Please allow at least a couple of hours to get there in case of any unforeseen construction and to get your bike ready. Smart Cow is in a shopping center that has a bank, a day care center and a bakery (no other stores are there), so there is a lot of parking, so we do not have to worry about parking. The Bug Line Trail is an all paved mostly flat 16 mile trail. At the end of the 16 mile trail, we will have a snack break, so everyone is welcome to bring a snack. Then we will head back along the trail (16 miles) to our cars (so we will be doing 32 miles total at a pace of 11-12 mph). After the ride we will drive to eat at Su Casa Grande restaurant (5-8 minutes down the road). NOTE: Su Casa Grande restaurant will not do separate checks, so everyone needs to pay with cash (make sure you also bring enough $1 bills).

I am going to give you exact directions how to get there and if you follow these directions exactly, you won’t get lost. However, if you decide to do your own GPS directions and you get lost, I am not familiar with the area, and will probably not be able to help you locate where we are.

Directions:

Take 294/94North to Wisconsin
Merge on 41N toward Fond du lac (via exit 317)
Stay on 41N the whole way and follow the 41N signs - do not get off on any other exit until you see Exit 52 (County Line Road, Hwy. Q)
Get off on exit 52 and turn left on County Line Road
You will pass about 4 or so stoplights (maybe 3/4-1 mile) and then you will see a sign WI 175.
Make a left on WI 175 (this is also Appleton Avenue) Tri-City National Bank is at the corner.
After you make a left on WI175, get into the right lane.
Go past Premier Lane.
Go past Wittlins Car Care (which is on your right). Then make a right on Shady Lane. Cornerstone Bank is on the corner.
Then make a quick right in the shopping center. Keep to your right in the parking lot and park. If you see Smart Cow, you are in the right parking lot.

(When 294/94 merges onto 41N and you just keep your eyes on that 41N and follow 41N, you should not get lost)

NOTE: There is no bathroom in the parking lot; but when we get onto the Trail, a couple miles down we will make a right on the trial to Monomonee Park, which has a nice bathroom facility (flush toilets)!!

My cell phone is 847/975-5310.
