Tuesday Moderate Ride – August 16th – 9:00 AM – Panera
There is no announced destination on the schedule for this week’s ride, so the ride leader gets to decide. I considered doing the ride to the Liberty Restaurant in Libertyville, that was canceled because of weather in July, but frankly I don’t want to invest the time necessary to eat at an inside, sit down restaurant with slow service. Instead we will use much the same route to ride to the Culvers along 176 in Libertyville. Here is a link to the route I will be using: LibertyvilleCulvers - A bike ride in Wilmette, IL (ridewithgps.com). It takes us north along Sheridan Road and the McClory Bike Path and west along the North Shore Bike Path. We will return by way of Northbrook. Our total distance will be around 51 miles. I will ride at the moderate pace (13 to 15 mph). With enough interest there will be a second group led by Will riding at a slightly faster pace.
If you are not a fan of the Butter Burger, please note that Culver’s also has a veggie burger, fish sandwiches, and a wide variety of salads.
Tomorrow’s weather looks good for a bike ride – generally sunny with a high temperature of 75 degrees and wind from the NE at 10 to 15 mph. If the weather should be vastly different than predicted making it necessary to cancel the ride, I will post an announcement to the listserv before 8:00 AM.
All riders should be vaccinated against COVID—19. Bring a mask in case masks are needed at the rest or lunch stop. All riders should also wear a helmet.
