Here’s the route.
The ride is called “Exploring the North Shore Channel Trail”. I designed it.
Picked up the trail at the park on Lawrence, here in Lincoln Square. Only one crossing, plus a little jog on Lincoln at Kedzie. Otherwise, it’s all trail. Evanston for frozen yogurts, then a kind of alarming ride down Sheridan -> Broadway. There’s got to be a better route for this. The lakefront path is intermittent way up there– due in part, I think, to so much private lakefront property in Evanston.
End at Goose Island for Chicago Beer Society craft beer festivities and samples of MJ’s newest vintage.
