Vandalia Trail Brisk Bike Rides 2020-2021 (Plainfield)

3rd Saturday each month, Nov-March, 9:00-11:00 AM, SE corner of Meijer Parking Lot
Nov 21, Dec 19, Jan 16, Feb 20, Mar 20

In its third winter, this monthly bike ride series in Plainfield by the Friends of the Vandalia Trail will be held the third Saturday morning each month, November-March. Whether you're a regular cold weather rider or would like to try it for the first time, come on out and enjoy a relaxed opportunity to try out your cold weather gear and exchange strategies on staying warm on the bike. Our gathering point is right behind Biggby's Coffee and the Metro Diner and in front of Meijer, convenient for a hot drink before and a warm breakfast and shopping after.

At 9:00 AM, we'll launch off to the nearby Vandalia Trail, ride at a leisurely pace to its west end, then back to and down the White Lick Creek Trail a bit, and finally return to the Vandalia Trail for the last stretch back to breakfast. This route is about 10 miles, but the group & individuals can choose more or less, depending on the conditions. The out-&-back routing gives a lot of flexibility on distance. Ride temperatures in past years have ranged 11-45 degrees.

Riders participate at their own risk. Minors must be accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them. If icy conditions exist or if it is raining or snowing, the ride will be canceled.
