Trolls Hunt at Morton Arboretum--August 6th
August 6, 2018
10 am

You may have heard about a Danish artist's construction of multiple trolls (made of recycled materials from the area) throughout the Morton Arboretum in Lisle. Let's plan a bike ride in the Arboretum on Monday, August 6th to see these trolls. (Fingers crossed that we'll get good weather that day!)

We'll meet in the parking lot of the Arboretum at 9:45 am. Allow about 35-45 minutes to get there from the Schaumburg area. We'll start riding at 10:00. There will be numerous stops on our ride to explore the 6 structures that artist Thomas Dambo has erected there. Around noon, we can stop for lunch at the very nice cafeteria at the Arboretum. (An interesting tidbit: Dambo took a bike tour of the arboretum before agreeing to the project. He had to find the right locations for creatures that would seamlessly blend with their environment.)

We'll be riding on the 9 miles of paved roads that wind through hundreds of acres of beautiful trees and displays. Of course, to get more exercise,
you can ride these roads two or three times!
