The first part of this ride follows the North Branch Trail, one of the great bike pathways of Chicagoland, as it meanders along the wooded banks of the Chicago River’s North Branch, through the Skokie Lagoons, and ending at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The route’s second part follows the Green Bay Trail through the tony North Shore towns of Glencoe, Winnetka, Kenilworth, and Wilmette. The route’s final leg runs through a small arboretum in Evanston, a 2-mile-long outdoor sculpture park in Skokie, and a handful of Chicago residential neighborhoods.
