Bike riding along the North Branch trail system then a BBQ - what more do you want on Memorial Day weekend - eh? Well -great weather for one thing ;-)
Join Pine Point for the first major outdoor activity of the summer. We will start at Caldwell Woods (The Bunker Hill picnic entrance off Caldwell Ave. & Touhy Ave) Saturday morning for a bike ride / skate along the North Branch trail and return for a BBQ about 1:30. We are easy to spot: look for Pine point banner, attached to the tree, and big, white gazebo tent. Join us for the ride, BBQ, or both. If you are joining us for BBQ only, 1.30 would be the time to show up.
Schedule for the day-
• 9:45 bike / skate prep
• 10:00 leave parking lot
• 1:00 (approx) return to parking lot & fire up the grills
• 1:30 food starts coming off the grills
• ??? or sunset - head home
Bike ride / skate details -
We will LEAVE at 10:00 and ride for about 80 minutes before taking a break to refuel for the ride back. (Bring your own water & food for the ride.) We will stay together, stopping at each of the intersections to regroup. If we have a faster group and a slower group, we will split up. Generally, plan on riding 12-15 MPH.
Our turnaround point will be Tower Road or Dundee Road. Water should be available at various bathrooms along the route, but it is safer to bring enough for yourself for the entire trip.
