Join us, sponsored by Sierrans of Greater Chicago, for a leisurely 30 mile (round trip total) bike along Lake Michigan's southern shoreline from the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore area, through Washington Park, continuing to the Michiana Shores state border. This general location is one of the most eco-diverse areas in the midwest.
This annual ride starts in Beverly Shores and takes us through Sheridan and Long Beach on Indiana Dunes lakefront roads that pass by hundreds of unique and fascinating cottage and summer homes both old and new. Refresh and picnic lunch on a little used beach and enjoy a leisurely wade/swim in Lake Michigan when the water is as warm as it gets -- especially this summer! We will then re-trace our route, scale and learn about the receding Mount Baldy, and possibly take an ice cream break along our journey back.
Sponsored by Sierrans of Greater Chicago. Sierra Club waiver required and signed at the trail head.
