Sunday bike ride and solstice bonfire

Friends of the Forest Preserves is having a solstice bonfire at Whistler Woods. Let's meet at Ridge Park (1817 W 96th St.) at 1:15 for a bike ride on the Major Taylor Trail down to Whistler.  At Whistler, the goal is to burn some of the many logs cut at recent habitat restoration workdays and enjoy the arrival of spring in the great outdoors. Spring plants are emerging and there are lots of migrating birds to see.

We'll head back around 5:00 p.m.  The ride is approximately 5 miles each way at a reasonable pace (10-14 mph).  Anne Alt of Friends of the Major Taylor Trail will lead the ride. For more info, email
