Everyone is invited to join Major Taylor Cycling Club Chicago and Friends of the Major Taylor Trail for a ride on the trail on Saturday 5/21. There will be pre-ride social time and bike check. The event offers 3 ride options:
1 mile (or distance of your choice) on trails in Dan Ryan Woods - something for the little ones and their parents
18 miles (easy pace) - the full length of the Major Taylor Trail, then heading west into Blue Island and back north through Morgan Park and Beverly on neighborhood streets
40+ miles (faster pace) - the full length of the Major Taylor Trail, then continuing through the south suburbs to Major Taylor's grave site and back
We'll meet up at the Dan Ryan Woods parking lot on the north side of 83rd St. between Western and Damen - north end of the trail. (map link here) Please arrive by 8:45 a.m. so we're ready to roll by 9:00.
