I think I'm heading up to the North Branch Trail this Saturday. I'd like to do 100 miles and the weather's supposed to be gorgeous. Generally, I'm a lone rider, but thought I'd throw a feeler out there to see if anyone else might be heading up that way. I did 82 last Sunday and it was pretty glorious, especially staying on the Skokie Lagoon loop.

Lone rider here, too. Would love to do this next week. Do you do loops in the trail? I usually go up Sheridan Road/ St John's, from Evanston to Lake Forest.

I went up the 12 miles from Caldwell to the Skokie Lagoon loop and circled there about 16 maddening times before coming back down to the car. 106 miles total for Saturday.

Looking for another longish ride this weekend, so let me know what you're doing! Maybe we can meet up! I'm in Edgewater, so not too far from Evanston.

My helmet off to you! I had never tried the trail, so I went up from Harms & Golf, did 3 loops around the lagoon... back to the car. I have a 43 mile loop -- will PM you.
