NOTES for Jera's CBG ride. - Sun 3/13/11 11a|
Andrew's route of record (NOT the route Jera took):
Chicago to Glencoe bike route summary:
Biggest/bestest/beautiest part is "Green Bay TRAIL" (NOT Green Bay road) running next to (east of) the Metra line through Wilmette and Kenilworth and Winnetka to Glencoe, but with significant discontinuities.
Hardest part is Evanston, most safely traversed on lakefront paths and Sheridan, and through NU campus.
Round trip is under 30 miles; not extremely hard but not easy. Watch your load and gearing and water and pauses and clothing, or use train for part. At about 11mph takes just 1:15 each way (and burns >500kcal). Comparable time to car or rail but FREE!
