Tuesday Ride (5-16-17) on the Fox River Trail
May 16, 2017
9:30 am

Join us for an approx 20 mile ride along the Fox River. The trail is well shaded and is a relatively easy ride. Starting in Bennett Park in Geneva, we'll take the Fox River Trail south to Aurora mostly on the east side of the river. At Illinois Blvd in Aurora, we'll turn around and return on the west side of the river. We'll take a relief break at the Prisco Community Center at Illinois Blvd. Plan on a stop for lunch in Batavia - there are numerous fast food locations there. Plan on being at Bennett Park to sign in by 9:15AM (ready to ride by 9:30AM). Bennett Park is about 20-22 miles from the Schaumburg area and we would suggest you allow about 45-60 minutes to get there.

Starting Location:
DIRECTIONS to Bennett Park. Take North Ave (Route 64) 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.

Distance: 20-22 miles
Average Speed: 10-13
