Bike the Major Taylor Trail

The Major Taylor Trail is an urban bike experience -- 8 miles one-way; 16 miles round-trip.  This trail gives LSSC members the opportunity to learn more about Beverly & points south.  The meeting point will be the Dan Ryan Woods, with plenty of parking, and porta-toilets. The southern turn-around point will be Whistler Woods.

There is a possible brunch option as a break during the return leg of the ride at a restaurant on Western Avenue.)

FYI—part of the paved trail includes sections on residential streets in east Beverly.
