Two Part Ride-Thursday, July 11th 9:30 a.m.
July 11, 2019
9:30 am

Hey SBCers: Well the weather is looking wonderful for tomorrow and hopefully some riders will be able to join me for a two part ride Oalong both sections of the North Branch Trail System. 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 quick 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 11:20 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. There are park restrooms along the way so we can take breaks as needed. We plan to go as far south as Bunker Hill Forest Preserve and hope to take the short side path over to Devon to eat lunch at the original Super Dawg. This section will be about 16 miles total.The plan may be altered to meet the needs of the riders-mainly me-as I haven’t been able to ride much this summer. This will make the total mileage around 34 miles but with the breaks, I think it will be very doable. Casual pace with no one left behind. I will be leading from behind per usual. Hope to see you for one or both parts of the ride! Lori Cell 847-602-0661
