Rockford ride
August 26, 2017
9 am

Join me for a ride starting from Rock Cut State Park. We will take the paved
Orange Trail along Willow Creek out of the park to Perryville Road. We cycle
west to the Rock River then south along the shoreline paths through many
small parks. This is a very scenic and diverse bike ride on side streets and
park trails.

Where: Rock Cut State Park
When: Saturday, 8/26, 9 AM (Please arrive 15 minutes early to prepare and
sign in)
What: Ride through the State Park and along the Rock River, about 25 miles
How: Casual speed, no one left behind

Directions:
Located about 65 miles from Schaumburg. Allow about 1 hour 15 minutes to get
there.

Take the I-90 Tollway North West to Rockford to 173 (the sign states Rock
Cut State Park). Go left on 173 and you will see the entrance to the park.
There are many parking lots within the park. It is about 1.5 miles into the
park to Pierce Lake Dam. Just stay on the main park road until you get to
the lake. We will meet at the Dam (looks like a wooden bridge). There is a
parking lot on the north side of the dam (bridge) across from the orange
trail. Don't cross the bridge or you will have gone too far.

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