Middlefork Savanna ~ Neal Ney
A savanna is open woodland with grasses and forbs growing under the trees.  We will ride at a moderate pace to this rare remnant from Illinois' pre-settlement past.  We'll ride a bit more than four miles on the limestone trail in the preserve at a slow pace with some stops for nature gawking. The trail is suitable for road bikes (as long as you are not in a hurry).  After lunch we will resume our moderate pace on the roads and paved paths back to Evanston.

Remote Start: Dunkin Donuts at Howard and Western
 
Bicycles are a great means of transportation.  Sure, its fun to ride.  But we also ride because we have somewhere to go.  The City of Chicago's Bike to Work Day Rally celebrates bicycles as a commuting option.  Many club members commute to work. Let's get up early, ride through the city and celebrate with other commuters.  The City always gives away cool T shirts and free stuff to eat. This ride ends at Daley Plaza. There are no planned food stops.
