Two Part Ride-Saturday
August 18, 2018
9:30 am

Hey SBCers: Join me this Saturday for a two part ride along both sections of the North Branch Trail System. Our meeting point will be in the parking lot for Harms Woods(Groves 5 & 6) at 9:15 a.m. to get your bike ready to ride. The lot entrance is located on Harms Rd. just north of Golf Rd. Take Golf Rd. east to Harms Rd., turn north (left) onto Harms Rd.and at the first light (Old Orchard Rd.) turn left into the parking lot where we will meet. We will start by riding north and into the Botanic Gardens for a short restroom break only. Then we will exit the Gardens and complete the north section loop which is around 18 miles. This should put us back at the parking lot for Harms Woods around 11:15 a.m. (or so). We will have another short break during which time you may want to eat a snack and any riders wanting to do only the south section will have a chance to sign in. Then we will start heading south on the trail. This loop will take us down to Bunker Hill Forest Preserve where we will take a short side path over to Devon, to eat lunch at the original Super Dawg. This section will be about 15 miles total. This will make the total mileage around 33 miles but with the breaks, I think it will be very doable. Casual pace with no one left behind. This is a well marked paved trail and I will be leading from behind per usual. If I have to cancel, I will send an email by 7:30 a.m. but hope to see you for one or both parts of the ride!
