A CCC Memorial Day tradition! Come out and join the club's resident southwest sider Brian Bird as we go on a 30-mile round trip to Franfort, IL via the Old Plank Bicycle Path. Turnaround point will be at or near the downtown Village Green. Endpoint rest stop will be late lunch stop to be determined (the Tinley Park Aurelio's Pizza's dining room is closed this Memorial Day). Please note that the remote start site is accessable by car and a 4-mile bike ride from the Metra - Rock Island Line's Oak Forest or Tiney Park - Oak Park Avenue stations.
NOTE: Metra will run its holiday schedule on Memorial Day - please check the Metra website for outbound and inbound train schedules.
ALSO NOTE: Those driving from Chicago using I-57 - 159TH STREET IS CLOSED AT CICERO AVENUE - you should exit I-57 at 167th Street West, taking that street about 3 miles to Oak Park Avenue, then turn right heading north to get to the start site. Bring your fully-functioning road bike, helmet, $$$ for food and drink, and come out on the ride!
