Kenosha Ride
September 15, 2018
9 am

I'll be riding from Illinois Beach State Park in Zion, Illinois to the
Kenosha lakefront, and you are welcome to join me. We'll ride trails
through the park to Wisconsin where we'll follow side streets along the
lakefront to Harbor Park in Kenosha. On the way back I'll be following the
Kenosha County Trail and McClory Trail (former right of way of the North
Shore Electric). Total distance about 30 miles. As we turn around in
Kenosha I'll stop at a local hot dog and hamburger shop for lunch. If you
prefer you can bring along something to eat instead. About half of the ride
will be on limestone trails. The remainder will mostly be on city streets.

Temps expected to warm up to mid-70s. Expect cool breezes close to the lake
so a windbreaker might be welcome.

Where: Illinois Beach State Park, South Unit, beach parking lot.
Directions: From Schaumburg take I-90 East to 294 North to Route 173 East,
to Sheridan Road South/Right (in Zion) to Wadsworth Road East/left into the
park. Take the road to the end large parking lot (past the resort) and we'll
be on the left-hand side. There is a vault toilet near the parking lot.
Google says it is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Clock Tower. Use 1
Lake Front Drive, Zion IL 60099 for your GPS (resort), then keep going to
the end of the road.
When: Saturday, 9/15, 9:30 AM (Please arrive about 15 minutes early to
prepare and sign in.)

We'll plan to spend more time in Kenosha so folks can shop the Harbor Market
or enjoy visiting the streetcar barn (it will be Streetcar Day)before we hit
the hamburger stand. Those that want to head back immediately can follow a
cue sheet back to the start.

We'll travel at casual speed, with no one left behind.

Let me know if you are coming so I don't leave without you.
