It's time for an April ride on the scenic Prairie and Fox River Trails!
We'll catch the 8:30 Union Pacific Northwest out of Ogilvie to Crystal Lake. From there we'll take the Fox River Trail south. First stop will either be Emmett's or Village Vintner for light lunch and beer. Then we'll proceed another 18-26 miles to Penrose Tap Room which I can't wait to try! From there it'll be a final 11 miles to the Two Brother's Roundhouse. Total distance is a bit less than 50 miles.
BNSF home from the Roundhouse at 4:20, 6:20, and 8:20 with a limit of 10 bikes per train. If there's a lot of us then some can ride 11 miles back to Geneva to catch the 6:37 or 8:37 Union Pacific West back to Chicago.
