North Branch to Botanic Gardens
August 25, 2017
10 am

I hope that some of you can join me on Friday, August 25th for a ride along the north section of the North Branch Trail System, from Harms Woods and into the Botanic Gardens for a lunch stop.




We will meet in the parking lot for Harms Woods (Groves 5 & 6) at 9:45 to get bikes ready to ride at 10:00. 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.




We will ride north, into the Botanic Gardens. Admission into the Gardens is free to cyclists but you will need money if you want to purchase food and/or a drink. We will lock our bikes and have time to walk around the Gardens, eat an early lunch, and enjoy the weather. After an hour and a quarter or so, we will ride back to our starting point in Harms Woods. This north section loop is around 18 miles. When we return to Harms Woods, if anyone is interested, we can add some mileage by riding south for whatever distance we choose.




Casual pace of 10-12 mph. This is a very well-marked, paved trail so faster riders are welcome to go ahead.

Reminder: Bring a lock!
