A Day Ride To the Dunes- September 24th
A ride to Indiana Dunes from Chicago, in association with Adventure Cycling's "Bike Your Park day".
The Lake Michigan shoreline of Southern Chicago and Northwestern Indiana reveals the marks of a century-long conflict over land use in the region. Sand dunes, steel mills, power lines, marsh land, and a commercial harbor share a ten-mile stretch along the lakeshore. These blimp in time squabbles may pale in comparison to what laid here tens of thousands of years ago... We'll learn the struggle for a National Park and discover the birthplace of ecology, the rise of Steel, and pop in one of the last remaining wood-smoked seafood shacks in Illinois, for a mouth-watering snack.
Let's transport back to 1893's Worlds fair as we cruise along Chicago's world class museum campuses, Daniel Burnham, and Jackson Parks, to the beginnings of green spaces in Chicago.
And most important of all, spend an evening enjoying the Sand Dunes of the Indiana Dunes Lake Shore and State Park.
A one day bike tour, followed by beaches, and a train ride home to Chicago
-Train ticket back to downtown costs $8.50
-Lunch, Dinner, and Drinks are at affordable restaurants
The Autumn Sun Harvest -To Illinois Beach State Park - October 29th & 30th
Get ready for crisp cool air mornings and the smell of autumn, as we tour the forests of Northeastern Illinois.
A seasonal landscape, where vast tracks of color flush red, yellow and autumn bronze, in the valley of the DesPlaines. A regional ride through the woods and prairies that lie beyond Chicago. But before we get there… house pumpkins, gourds, and cider fill the north shore communities, as we travel north and feast our eyes upon architectural masterpieces.
Learn about the towns, the lay of the land, and the unique ecosystems along the way, as we drop knowledge on top of your noggins at each break point.
We’ll ride to and camp on the youngest land in the state, at Illinois Beach State Park. We'll discover the Dead River, go on a guided Nature walk, and learn what the Chicago area looked like before European settlement. And what better way to end our first day of riding than to relax around a campfire, on a cool night with warm apple cider on the shores of Lake Michigan.
Fall Foliage. Full Day in the The Woods. And Lunch at Chicago Botanical Gardens on Day 2. Plus so much more…
This is not an out and back route, but a true bike loop starting at Buckingham Fountain, to the Wisconsin State Line, through the valley of the DesPlaines, and back to the City Metropolis –Chicago
Gather some friends, check out the Itinerary, and let’s have a good time.
