Day's Route

Our route for the day consisting of two 11+ mile legs in a loop beginning and ending at Lake Forest.

The Firkin Ride Loop

Firkin’s in Libertyville is an outstanding gastro-pub with great food and a wide selection of brews to choose from.  Our group of senior cyclers took the METRA to Lake Forest and rode a few local streets (Everett Road is a white knuckle experience if traffic is heavy) but did the rest of the trip on the well marked Lake County Bicycle Trail system.  The map shows our route.

As an added benefit, my daughter and two grandchildren live nearby and were able to join us for lunch.
