Fox River Trail ride Saturday
May 26, 2018
9:30 am

Join us for this easy 20 mile ride starting at Bennett Park in Geneva (South edge of St. Charles) down to Aurora and back. Total distance approx 20 miles round trip along the most beautiful part of the Fox River Trail. We'll make stops to re-group along the way, no one will be left behind! So far, the weather looks good.

Plan on being at Bennett Park by 9:15AM to sign in (ready to ride by 9:30AM). Bennett Park is about 20-22 miles from the Schaumburg area and we would suggest you allow about 45 minutes to get there.



DIRECTIONS to Bennett Park: Take 59 South to North Ave (Route 64) then west to St Charles. You'll pass the Charlestowne Mall then cross Dunham Rd and Tyler Rd. At the traffic light at 7th Ave move into the left lane. Turn left on 5th Ave (Route 25) and proceed south. In a very short block you'll cross Illinois Ave (traffic light) and proceed to the stop sign at the foot of the hill. The Fox River will be directly in front of you. Stay to the left along the river and pass Langum Park (on your left). Shortly after you pass Langum Park, watch for Bennett Park on your right - it is an open parking area and you should see other folks gathering there - you'll be turning right into this area. If you reach the traffic light at Route 38 in Geneva (State St/Roosevelt Rd), you've gone about 200 yards too far. An alternate route is to take RT 25 South from Stearns Road, following the river to Bennett Park.



Questions? Call my cell at 847 530-0276 The current weather forecast says clear weather until evening. If there should be any reason to cancel, we'll post that notice by 8:00AM. Hope to see some of you on Saturday morning. I know there will be some of us going, call or email me to make sure that we donít leave without you.
