This monthly bike ride series in Plainfield by the Friends of the Vandalia Trail will be held on Saturday mornings, Whether you're a regular cold weather rider or would like to try it for the first time, come on out & enjoy a relaxed opportunity to try out your cold weather gear & 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 & a warm breakfast & 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 & down the White Lick Creek Trail a bit, & 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. Last winter, ride temperatures 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.
