Join a new weekly bike ride along the lakefront with Village members and guests! Every Tuesday, enjoy an approximately 5 mile ride, beginning and ending at the same meeting location south of Foster Beach. Free parking is available east of Lake Shore Drive on N Simonds Drive between Lawrence and Foster Avenues. The lamp poles have numbers on them, and the group will meet near lamp post #SD5102 (meeting location and route shown on the map at right).
The group will then ride south to the mouth of Belmont Harbor and back to our starting location. Members are welcome to bring a beverage and a snack (and if you have a vehicle, a folding chair) for the group to enjoy upon returning to the original meeting location. If your partner or friend is not a cyclist, they might enjoy sitting in the shade overlooking the lake while the group enjoys their ride.
