Major Taylor Trail ride on Sunday 6/24

Please join Friends of the Major Taylor Trail and Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago for a group bike ride.  There will be 3 different ride options:

* Easy (pick your own distance) - ideal for families with little ones or the most casual riders

* Medium (18 miles) - moderate pace, riding the full length of the trail, then over to Blue Island and north again

* Challenging (45-55 miles) - fast pace, riding the full length of the trail, then continuing into the south suburbs and north again

We meet at the 83rd St. parking lot in Dan Ryan Woods (north side of 83rd between Damen and Western).  From Beverly or Morgan Park, you easily can ride to the start by following the trail north from 91st St., crossing 87th and continuing north, crossing the bridge over 83rd St., then taking the left turn just before the northern end of the trail.  The trail comes out at the parking lot.

Arrive anytime between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. to socialize and get your bike checked out if it needs a little attention.  The ride will star at 9 a.m.

We hope to see you then.
