Join us for a ride on the MCCD Prairie Trail – meet at Algonquin Towne Park in Algonquin at 2PM and we’ll ride north with a turnaround at about 4 to 4.5 miles and on the way back will visit Scorched Earth Brewing for a cold one, for those interested. The brewery is newly accessible by bike path from the PT. Questions? email
