As Bicycle Nomad puts it "On a Bicycle seeing the big picture comes naturally."
Into the Basin: Exploring Chicago's Lower Lake Michigan Basin Area by bike
Included in June's Newsletter: Up-coming events, overnight bike camping adventures! New Programs! A Block Party! And so much more. Also to give a little insight on what we've been up too the last couple of weeks: We helped plant native trees and shrubs on the new North Branch Trail's southern extension in LaBagh woods and we completed our “Battle to the Dunes” ride where we rocked it with an amazing team of three Field Guides and 12 participants. Such a stellar group and lasting connections made. This is what we are talking about! We're really loving the community we are building.
The Out Our Front Organization is in the process of making a series of patches for the bike camping destinations around Chicago and The Lower Lake Michigan Basin area. Where each patch is unique to it's landscape and local area.
Before embarking on a 120-mile round-trip bike journey from Chicago to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, The Out Our Front Door Organization led a collaborative series of events to kick start their first trip of the season. Where the public took part in a 100 year old tradition, learned the battle and struggle for a National Park which sparked a world wide movement and introduced legislation that would forever change American history, and discovered the birthplace of modern day ecology.
